So far I have been enjoying my experience at the Univeristy of North Dakota. I am a commercial aviation major, so the classes I have been taking are valuable and enhancing my learning for the future. The campus at UND is very nice. All of my classes are easily accessible by walking. It’s small “cozy” campus has made it enjoyable for me and it fits my needs and want. Plus it helped me adapt to my new live here in North Dakota without feeling like I was stuck in a huge campus. All of my teachers love what they do and want to make sure the student get value out of the classes they take while helping them complete requirements for essential studies. Overall, UND is a great college for anyone who is looking for a small college feel. Also, if you are interested in going into commercial aviation, medical, and education, UND has great programs for those degrees. UND has been a great college and I am looking forward to my future at this university!

UND is a relatively small campus. I like this because the winter can be so harsh here that it's nice to walk short distances to get to class. I haven't had a single bad experience with a professor. My advisor is wonderful! She offers plenty of help whenever I need it, and genuinely seems to care about my academic success. There are always fun activities going on for you to meet new people! They occasionally have game nights, free food, movie nights, etcetera. If you like peace and quiet, good places to study are the library and the memorial union. The only thing I would dock points off for would be that there is limited parking available for students that live off campus.
I am in my last semester of the UND Special Ed online masters program before my internship and then graduation next semester. I have truly enjoyed the courses I have taken as I am learning so much valuable information that I can apply to my career. I enjoyed analyzing the characteristics of students with learning disabilities and the various approaches and methods used to foster ideal learning environments in the classroom. I had the opportunity to learn from professors who exemplify what they teach, and benefited from hands on experience to implement what I have learned. My professors and the entire college are so understanding, thoughtful, and caring. They want to help you succeed and work with you. They even called me in Florida to make sure I was okay and offer extended deadlines after Hurricane Irma. This is also the cheapest, quickest way to get my degree and really learn my stuff so I can be the most educated, experienced, and effective educator I can be. I love this place!
