North Dakota State University Reviews
The campus is perfect sized for me, not too big, but not too small. North Dakota State University focus on the needs of the students and do whatever they can to satisfy their needs. You walk onto campus and immediately feel welcomed and comfortable, it really feels like home and I couldn't picture myself going anywhere else. The professors make class interesting and are really good at keeping the students engaged. North Dakota State University also provides such a wide variety of majors and academic programs, you can find exactly what you're looking for! Not to mention, the hundreds of clubs and organizations on campus that you are able and encouraged to get involved in.
I am currently a freshman here at North Dakota State University and so far it's a great college for me. I love how big the campus is because all the buildings are spread out so you can get your daily exercise in from walking to class everyday. Another way you can get your exercise in is by going to the Wallman Wellness Center where they have a pool, yoga classes, cycling classes, weight lifting, cardio, you name it! I love spending my time there when I'm not busy with class. North Dakota State University also has a great bus transportation system so if you don't have your car here the bus will take you pretty much anywhere in Fargo. Overall, this University has a great atmosphere and is a very safe campus. It would be a great college to attend for anyone.
I really enjoying studying at NDSU. There are lot of teachers that are very understanding and work with you when you're dealing with personal issues. My adviser is wonderful and is straight forward on class subjects that I benefit from. The only issue I have is one teacher that was trying to force me have facebook even though facebook gives me anxiety and for my mental benefit I would not get it. He told me what I needed to do ( Lot of hoops to jump through) and it was just better for me to drop the class. Even though it was all over just commenting on a status that I couldn't answer any other way without getting approved by the special needs. beside that most of the teachers have been wonderful. Before NDSU I went to tech schools and the teachers were awful NDSU teachers care! They go above and beyond for their students and it has made going to school fun and not stressing out over your teacher being in a bad mood.NDSU is beautiful and I am very proud to be a Bison!
