North Dakota State University combines excellent opportunities to excel in academics with a strong foundation of community to make for a successful and rewarding college experience.
Keep doing what you are doing. Next year, you are about to go through a transformation that you cannot plan for. Look for ways to become a better leader, encourage others to strengthen their leadership abilities, and give it all you've got. When you look back on your freshman year of college, I want you to know that you tried your best and made an incredible impact on the school. Look to other people if you ever need help and do not try to do everything by yourself because it is not possible. Your parents are not with you and they will not be helping you pay for college, but don't get discouraged because they support your every step. Apply for as many scholarships as you can so that you don't need to focus on money as much. The most important thing is your education. Things will go wrong, and family members will be sent to prison. Keep a level head and be the best that you can be, and there is no doubt that you will persevere. Stay strong and look to the future. There are better days ahead.
The worst thing about our school is its location. Fargo is windy and cold. It is be reasonable to assume there will be snow on the ground in late October.

The transition from high school student to college student proved to be difficult for me. I was one of those students that didn't try in school but regardless managed to received a mix of good and great grades without effort in challenging courses. In college I tried to continue these habits because it worked well for me. I immediately found out that this was not the way to approach my college courses. College though it's a continuation of your education is its vastly different. The professors treat you like the type of person you are: an adult. They aren't going to remind you of homework assigments. Some profesors don't even assignment homework, which sounds nice right? Well, if there's no homework then your grade is solely based on tests, if you fail the tests you fail the class. I've never had a test curved since I started college, and no help is given to you. You are an adult now, and if you need something get it yourself. If I could I would have told myself to read accordingly to the schedule, and to ask for help the instant I seemed to be struggling.

I would explain how college is, and tell myself to continue on the academic path, not to let any feelings hold me back. College is very different than high school, both socially and academically. The classes are strict with deadlines and expect the best from all of us. They are easy to manage at first, however, the later terms become more and more challenging. It may seem overwhelming at first, but in time you will get used to the concept. Another factor is work, class schedules need to work out with the work schedule if income were to meet above expenses. Lastly, there is more to life after graduation, if you feel you didn't do well in your adolescent years, there will be time in your adult life to make it up. College gives people keys to opportunities, and those opportunities open gates to what one really wants to fulfill in their life.
My school is alive, colorful, full of potential, and lots of oppertunities to expand and make lots of friends.

Not to be afraid of change, and push yourself to full potiental. Dont be afriad to ask questions, everybody is there to learn. Dont be worried about what everybody else gets on their test, only achieve better then you did the last time. Your in a race of your own, and only you can make yourself better if you want to. Dont be scared to meet new people, go out more and push out of your bubble, and be open to new cultures. Volunteer lots and more doors will open in the future. Its a big stepping stone, and looks scary but push hard and know who you are and be open to the world, its yours to explore and learn from. Enjoy the little things they go by much faster then we realize!
learn better studying habits, and learning how to better manage time.

If I could go back, I would tell myself to get better time management skills, because for me that was the hardest thing to do making the transition between high school and college. I would also have told myself to take more PSEO classes than I did as well as become involved right away on campus. One last thing would be to enjoy the little things about college and to go out and spend time with your friends even if it's just for a little bit.
The weather, because right now it's -10 and cold. Some of the main building's hallways are a little small, because they've been remodeling for the past 3 years or so.
The campus is very close togther and that everything is within walking distance. The tuition is reasonalble as well as some of the faculty are the best teachers are the best that I've ever had.

My classmates are focused and driven, and they know how to make the most of their educational experience while making it enjoyable.
I am enrolled in the professional Architecture program at NDSU. All of the architecture courses at NDSU are not on the main campus but on the downtown campus. This is frustrating for two reasons. First off, architecture students must take a fifteen minute bus ride to the downtown campus because there is no parking for students near the downtown campus. Secondly and more importantly, the location of the downtown campus tends to isolate architecture students from the rest of the University's students because so much of our time is spent away from the main campus.

North Dakota State University is a great place that offers many different majors with great professors in each field, and also provides many options for extra organizations and groups to become involved in.
At NDSU there is alot of diversity, which provides you with the chance to meet alot of new people from all over and get to know more about their ways of life and culture. Also one thing that stands out is, even though there is around 14,000 students attending NDSU, the professor still will give you one on one help if needed so you do not get lost in the crowd.
When thinking back to my high school self, I notice many different changes. The first thing I would tell myself is your research. By that I mean when selecting which college to attend, where you want to live, and what major you want to persue make sure to get all the information. Making these decisions is alot easier when you are fully informed. I would also tell myself to keep an open and accepting mind. When going from living at home with your parents for 18 years to moving out into a big unfirmiliar world with a lot of new things and people, its easy to get a sour taste in your mouth when things do not always go in your favor. Each person you encounter on your journey has a story, so it is important to remember that before forming an opinion about them. Lastly I would say, even though this period might be scary and nerve racking, enjoy it. Times seems to go by faster with every passing year and these moments that seem daunting or uncomfortable right now will be the ones you look back on as "the good ol' days'".

I love NDSU. Before I actually started classes I was planning on transferring to a different school for spring semester. I quickly changed my mind. I love the atmosphere, they do a lot to make campus look nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. I really like how they help you without baby-ing you or assuming you know everything. When I have sought out help they answer all my questions and tell me what I need to do. I feel that I am not left to fight for myself yet I feel that I am learning how to get things done for myself. I especially love the dining options. Both of NDSU's meal plans are unlimited so you don't have to worry about rationing out your meals for the week. There are also 3 different dining centers and 2 of those feature 2 different hot lines (in addition to their soup, salad, and sandwich lines) so you can surely find something you like. Also, most of the residence halls are attatched to a dining center (or extremely close) so you don't have to choose between starving and going out in the cold. As far as size goes NDSU has it just right. Campus is big enough so you can feel like you are getting away from your dorm but small enough that you don't freeze solid walking to classes on those cold Fargo winter days. NDSU also has a downtown campus. If you don't bring a car or don't want to drive it you don't have to worry because city buses (which you can ride for free) come through campus every 20 minutes or less I think it is. One of my favorite things is I have not yet had a TA teach any of my classes, and I don't know anyone who has. The one and only thing I don't like is parking. Some lots fill up fast, I can usually still find a spot but sometimes I have to park about 5 minutes (walking) away from my dorm. But if thats the worse thing about NDSU then NDSU is overall pretty awesome.
I decided to go to NDSU because it was close to home and they had a lot of majors to choose from. I also like the atmosphere I felt when I toured campus. I decided to stay at NDSU because I was thrilled with the quality of my classes and how helpful the staff and professors were.
I hear that a lot of people think that NDSU is full of small town, farm grown agriculture students. Truth is that I only know a couple agriculture students. During my time here I have seen students of every ethnicity, background, and major. I myself am a history and social science education major. My roommate is a vet tech major, my old roommate is a nursing major, and a good friend is a criminal justice major. NDSU attracts all different kinds of students from the midwest region. You'll for sure meet new and interesting people.

The best thing about this school is that it makes me feel comfortable. I have been to other colleges and when I started at this one, I just knew that this is where I fit in. The only complaint I can think of that I have heard was that the school is kind of big, this is true. The students who do not go here do not know how great that is. I understand that some people do not like big schools, but here there are a number of classes and majors that you can choose that offer smaller classes and the opportunity to be known by your classmates and professor. However, one thing I like is a combination of big and small classes as I have had at least one of each every semester and the best part is that you have a copious amount of people to make friends with. If you want a school with a lot of Bison pride, you have found the right one.
Well the students here are very diverse, personally I don't think that many people could feel out of place here. There are so many things to be involved in as I said earlier and even if that is not your thing there are many places on campus for you to be if you don't want to be around the others. When I walk on campus, I see people dressed in mostly sweats. A lot of others just wear jeans or even pajamas. If you are like me I like to dress up every day, or at least most days :) However, there is also a good bunch of students who wear Bison pride wear everyday also.
I haven't had the opportunity to see stereotypes because of the diversity on campus. There are so many things to do or be involved in that you really do have an almost unlimited choice. If you don't see the one thing you want on our student activities list, students are allowed to stop by the Student Activities office and start another club.

I would tell myself to not be afraid to take chances and experience new things. The shift from high school to college can be stressful, but it is manageable. The important thing is to take college seriously and work hard. Working hard for what you want in life and particularly in school is an important thing to learn. Being hard-working and determined are both great qualities to have, and I would have told myself to work on strengthening both those qualities before coming to college. I would also tell myself not to fret over the little things. College is a great, new, and exciting experience that every student should enjoy. Worrying over minor things is not worth it and distracts you from your goals and dreams in life.
I wish I had known more information about finanical aid and what comes with it. Some of the financial aid regulations and requirements can be tricky and hard to understand. I wish I had taken more time to learn about them before getting to the school.
The worst thing about my school is the lack of availability of programs. Since it isn't a really large college (although it it decent-sized) it may not have everything that some people are looking for. However, it still offers many great programs and opportunities for students with what it currently has.
