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!
Review University of North Dakota
I would not recommend this school to anyone unless they want to go into aviation or law. Grand Forks has nothing for college students to do. Hockey games are fun, but only men's since they cut women's hockey from a HOCKEY SCHOOL. I guess our football and basketball team has improved, but the school keeps cutting sports so your options are limited. The party scene is okay, but the frats are disgusting, so I don't recommend those. If you can find a house party sometimes those are fun, but the cops like to shut those down. The food has no variety and there shutting down Terrace which is the only dining center with somewhat quality food. The campus smells bad in the spring and sometimes the fall. The winter is miserable. Always windy, cold, and icy. They advertise tunnels, but only have one. The dorms and campus buildings are outdated, as in they still use chalkboards! Freshman classes are huge and while I've had some good professors, I've also had some bad ones. There are better schools!
So far, I've been enrolled as an engineering student for two year, and switched my major to Pre-Occupational Therapy. The campus is great and has a lot of opportunities and things to do. It's really cold for most of the school year because it is so up north. The Ralph Engelstad Arena is very unique and is an awesome place to watch some hockey! Like any other college or university, professors are there to research and not there to teach, with a few exceptions of great professors who actually do their job.
