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!

I love this campus, and it truly feels like home. With somewhere around 12,000-15,000students enrolled here, it feels big but not too big. The campus is beautiful and everything is within walking distance (when it’s not 20 below). Sports are decent, and the hockey teams is consistently one of the best in the nation. There is definitely a big party scene if you are into that. Academics seem to be good, at least in my field. College is what you make it. The only big criticisms I would have is parking isn’t that great and it’s always cold. With that being said, I love the people here and professsors really seem to care. I wouldn’t want to be going anywhere else.
Moving to college is a nervous experience. You are excited to start this new adventure before you, but you are leaving your family and friends behind. Being at the University of North Dakota, I could not imagine myself anywhere else. I love the atmosphere, classmates, and my professors. The professors truly care about you and your willingness to succeed. They are there to help you in any way possible to accomplish that goal or grade in the class. The college activities around campus are in perfect distance for those who do not have vehicles. Everyone is very welcoming and genuine about who you are. It is a great place to study, learn, and have fun!
