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

I would tell the parents to encourage their kids to go and check out the campus and talk with the professors of their intended major before making any decisions. To the kids, I would tell them not to worry about going to college with your friends from high school because you make so many other lifelong friends in college. I would also tell them to be themselves no matter what and not give into peer pressure because you are respected more for standing up for yourself than you are for giving in.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I like to brag about our professors. Everyone told me that when I was going to a university that the teachers wouldn't care about me, but they do and they are very accessible and willing to talk to you.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The parking at the school isn't very good, and some things that they charge you for in tuition you don't always need or want. The tuition is always climbing too, and you don't see a lot of your money in what you get.

It is the friendliest school I have ever atteneded. Also there are always things to do on campus or off campus to keep one busy.

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

My advice about finding the right college would be to go out and find a college somewhere that you have always wanted to go just to get experience in life. My advice on making the most out of a college experience would be to just go out and find things to do whether it be joining a fraternity and getting involved that way, or join a few clubs. Anything that this person finds enjoyable they should be doing in college, because thats what this time of life is for, enjoying, learning, and getting ready for the rest of your life.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The financial aid department always takes the extra time to dispurse the financial aid which can cause frustrations.

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

i would say look at your options and try to find the school that you feel that you can fit into. Once accepted join an organization not related to your major. this will give you a broader spectrum of people that you may become friends with.

What kind of person should attend this school?

this university is one of the better schools in the state and i feel that anyone should be able to attend this university because the university will do all it can to help every person succeed.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

NDSU is best known for the agricultural and engineering program as well as their football team.

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

I guess I would say it depends on your major. I learned that you always want to apply for your number one college institution that you want to go and at least two more back-up schools. That way if you don't get in you will have somewhere else to go. It's easier to get into a harder school by transfering there oppossed to going there straight out of high school. If you aren't accepted the first time try your second choice and then try tranfering after a semester or two. Another helpful tip is to make sure you get a tour of the campus first before accepting it as your college, that way you get a feel for it before you end up being stuck there and not likeing it. The best advice I can give is to do some research about your major to find where the best affordable institutions are and see if they fit your lifestyle and go for it. Anything can happen if you put your mind to it!

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

the wellness center is awesome. I really like how it is layed out, its a rectangle and nothing not on campus is in it and nothing on campus is off it. there isn't a persons house in the middle of campus that really isn't on campus.

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

I would check the university's accredibility, their success rate of graduates finding jobs after graduation. The total package that comes with the college, (what everyone in general thinks about the school). How much has tuition risen in the last few years. The past enrollment, has it been up or down, steady in one direction. what is the universities plans for the future. Do they have what you need to become successful in whatever field you are interseted it, do they have a secondary field you would also like to go into, if you end up not liking your first choice. Things like that. Last thing, visit the campus and think 4 years down the road and go with your gut feeling. Good luck.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I don't have much to say that frustrates me about the school in general. I do think it is a bunch of crap however that to judge the quality of the university is based on how friendly to minorities they are, how diverse the programs are, how diverse the teachers are, how accepting of minorities everyone is, blah blah fn' blah. but thats every thing now days not necesarliy to ndsu in general.

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

NDSU is a great place to live and learn. It's small enough to feel like home, but big enough that there is lots to do!

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

When making your decision, pick the place that feels most like home. College is not just a place to learn, but it will be your home for the next few months/years. If you don't feel comfortable then you won't be successful.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

You can get anywhere on campus is 10 minutes or less

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

Choosing the right college can be a difficult process, but you should choose a college that you can see yourself on day after day. Not only that but it should hold some qualities that match your interests. The only way one can make the most of their college experience, in my mind, is by having fun. It is true that you are here to learn and go to class, but one should also get out and experience eveything that the campus has to offer them. You will learn things that you would never be able to learn in a classroom. You will make friends that will last forever and will have many memories to look back on. College is said to be the best years of your life, why not take advantage of everything it has to offer you?

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone should attend NDSU especially if you love being involved.
