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!

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!
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!
