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
The University of North Dakota is just the college I was looking for! Not only did it have my major, it's academics and staff allow many other options for classes to choose from all while creating and maintaining a safe and learning friendly environment. On top of that, there are many available extra curriculars to meet anyone's needs and wants!
One thing I really liked about UND was the fact that there was something for everyone, whether is was within academics or by getting involved with different organizations on campus. The campus was not too big or too small, and there was always a familiar face wherever I went. The school pride and support was, and continues to be, tremendous and can be seen throughout the entire community, especially when it came to supporting our athletics. The professors care for their students and want all of them to succeed. They were always very helpful and I never experienced any problems with any professor. All in all, my experience at UND has been amazing and I'm so grateful for the opportunities I have been given and all of the memories I have made here.
