What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The most important aspect is to get a feel for the college and see if it fits yourself. Make sure to go on as many campus tours as possible, just to get a feel for what is out there. There are so many options available and a decision should not be made until numerous options have been explored. Making the most of your college experience can be easily summed up in two words: get involved. The easiest way to meet new people is to join a group or organization that fits you and will have people that you can get along with. I joined the marching band my first year and instantly had over 100 friends. It made the transition much easier. Another way to make the most of your college experience is having an equal balance between academics and social life. This balance is crucial for any college student's success in classes. You cannot be a study rat who does not get out and meet new people and have great experiences they will remember forever. But you can not go out everynight and expect to pass all your classes. Mainly, get out and explore your options.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person can attend NDSU. It is for those who may not want to go to college, or those looking for a research degree. Quite frankly, NDSU would fit nearly anybody.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You should find a school that is in a location that will allow you to succeed. Make sure there are enough options when it comes to majors, so that if you want to change you do not need to tranfer to somewhere else. Don't pick a school where you will be worrying about how you will pay tuition all the time. Base the dicision on the size of campus on what you think you will be comfortable with. Take a tour of the campus during the school year so you can see students as they move around campus so that you are familiar with the types of people that you will be in class with. Check out the opportunities the school offers to graduates trying to get a job. Don't pick a school because a bunch of your friends are going there, because you will not be able to meet as many people and probably will not branch out to new people as much.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The weather. It's really cold and windy.

Do your research. Don't let funds hold you back. There are many opportunities for funding out there, you just have to find them. Work hard, and it will pay off. Remember to enjoy your time there. Its not all just the schooling, but the experiences you will share with the people that you will meet. Its a blast. Everyone should experience it!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone looking for a great college for a great career and experience should check NDSU out.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

While the condition of the buildings on campus is important, the people you meet while touring colleges are more important. The people are the ones that you will have to spend the next 4-5 years with so its important that a school is friendly and welcoming and that there are opportunities for you to meet different types of people because you can learn as much from them as you do from your classes.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the weather.

It's not necessary to go to the most expense, top-ranked university ages away from home; what's important is that it will get you to where you want to be going.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A very liberal or nontraditional person would have a harder time fitting in here.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

NDSU is a great school to attend with tons of school spirit and pride, the winters are freezing and the summers are humid but its a great campus with professors and students that are willing to help you advance yourself as a student and person.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Choosing the right college for you, to me, depends on what you are looking for educationally. Picking a college that has a strong program that you are interested in is very important especially if you are considering continuing on to graduate school. Freshmen orientation is also a very helpful tool in selecting the right college for you as are campus tours. Campus tours are very useful because you are able to speak to others in the major of you interest, visit the on campus housing, sample the cafeteria food, and learn the general layout of the campus. This also gives the you oppurtunity to meet and interact with other incoming freshmen so you are able to start making friends before you even select the college. Friendships in college are one of the most important relationships that will be made, the people you meet become your new family and these people will help you make the adjustment to college life and get you through your first finals and other random nights.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are not fond of extreme weather such as below zero winters with even colder wind chills, NDSU may not be for you, there are a diverse group of students so its easy to find a niche that suits you from conservative to liberal, religious to non-religions, just about any group of people can be found on NDSU, we also have a large international student program, which brings alot of diversity to the campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

First the student and parents need to visit multiple colleges, view there ciricculum and choices for classes. Then decide on the school that best fits the students needs and wants. The student should decide on what they want not what the parents want. If the school is out of budget have the student apply for scholarships or grants so he or she can go to that school if its the school they prefer.
