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

I think that a student should choose a school that is going to challenge them and help them achieve everything they want academically. Don't be discouraged if you cannot decide on a major right away. Just take some time and try to figure out what it is that you really love and go with it. I also think joining clubs on campus is a great way to meet friends and get to know new people. College is about learning and growing as a person and is a great opportunity.

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

I really enjoy that the campus is not too big, yet not too small. It has both big lecture classes and also smaller classes that are more one-on-one. I enjoy the feeling of school spirit from my fellow students as well.

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

North Dakota State University is a fun, diverse college where students can grow academically and develop into tomorrow's leaders.

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

Meeting fun people, challenging yourself acadmecially, learning about yourself, being a member of a community, revealing your leadership skills. If these sound like qualities you wish to posses, then you need to decide what it is that you want from your college. For me, it was going to a college that was just big enough that not everyone knew your name, but not so big that you became student number 9,786,457. I wanted a college with several different organizations to become involved with. I wanted to go to a place that had conservative political views and a friendly atmosphere. The only way you can figure out what different colleges have to offer is by visiting them. Tour different colleges! That is the best decision you can make when narrowing your options. If you do that, you will certainly choose a place that will allow you to make the most of your college experience.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The class sizes can be so large that you do not get to interact with your classmates and professors. Those interactions can teach students many new things and I wish that my college would encourage more group discussion in the large lecture classes.

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

If you are trying to get away from hicks and farm people, don't go to NDSU because the majority of students are from rural areas.

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

That North Dakota has a lot of money in its budget for schools, so NDSU has a nice campus and some nice facilities.

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

As a recent college graduate, I find myself looking back at college with extreme pride. I was not able to afford college, so I worked full time while taking out student loans. It took me 7 years to complete college, however, picking the right school had a lot to do with my success. I searched many colleges and found that the college I attended was concerned about my future success and well-being. Everyone, from professors to the janitor, helped me achieve my success by caring beyond their "job description" and making me the best person I could be. As for making the most of the college experience, that comes from within yourself. You need to be able to make choices and prioritize your academics along with taking time for yourself and others. I would make a schedule for homework and studying, but would also make a timeslot for checking out local movies, hanging out with friends and trying new things such as campus activites and volunteering. I learned a lot about myself during college by making myself well-rounded and involved in numerous activities. I miss it all so much that I am now in Graduate School!

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

It is cold in North Dakota, so walking across the big campus can be a bummer!

As a non-traditional student I do not have much interaction with my classmates, but for the most part they seem to be motivated and focused students who exhibit a great deal of school spirit.

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

There are several extremely important things to consider when selecting a college. While overall reputation or name recognition may be important to an individual, that won't be of benefit if the discipline that caters to their academic desires or abilities is not available. Students should search for a college that offers what they want academically and a faculty that is knowledgable and passionate about what they are teaching. If undecided on a course of study, look for a school that offers a broad range of courses, and is willing to work with the student via guidance counseling, strong advisorship and that has a willingness to keep track of student progress while providing assistance in finding a personally and academically rewarding match in terms of degree or certification. Additionally, keep in mind finances when selecting a school. There are enough challenges while in school that one should not have to worry that they may have to drop out due to financial complications. Prospective students should meet with the school's financial aid office to see what is available for them, and should never assume that one can only receive an excellent education at the most expensive of schools.

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

The most frustrating aspect of my school is that the science departments seem to have a significant lack of funding to update equipment and to provide adequate equipment for field research in laboratory classes.

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

I would tell parents to make their kids really look. Many schools are over looked because of their location and where they are. Some can be superficial about where they go and want to follow the mainstream crowd. You might just find that the place you thought was aweful can be your dream school. Just applying and web searching is not enough. Parents, your kids need to get interactive and get out of the car and check out the school to make sure they like the feel of the campus. Internet pages can't tell you that. Schools don't show the whole school on their web sites.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that is not school spirited and not willing to put in effort. This is a lively school and it needs lively people.

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

I brag about how great the environment is, how friendly the people are, and how understanding the teacher's are.

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

I would advise incoming college students to look for the college that best fits your major of choice. Take your time in deciding. Also, along with choosing the school that has your major, don't choose it just because your friends are attending the same school, or they are going for the same major, choose it because it is truly something you are interested in and you can see yourself pursuing for the rest of your life.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

financial aid, grading with opscans, scheduling classes
