My overall experience at Bismarck State College has been very beneficial. The campus is beautiful, well kept, and the environment is very friendly and welcoming. A variety of classes are available and I succeed in the smaller class sizes. It is nice to be able to make a more personal connection with the other students and with the professors. One thing I really like it how affordable the tuition is. The one thing I would like to see improved is for the library to have longer hours and to be open later at night.
All of the online classes I have taken so far have been completely amazing! The professors are extremely helpful and provide good content for learning.
