University of North Dakota Reviews
The UND campus is beautiful and there is a great sense of community. In addition, the hockey is awesome! When I determined my major, I "assumed" that it and UND were one. They are not. UND does not share medical information with the particular degree program I chose. If the information I provided to UND was accessible to other program staff, issues could have been addressed on an individual basis and cleared up prior to being accepted into the program. There is not one person to go to for all your questions/needs. You go to one person for questions regarding college and another person "adviser" for direction regarding the program. I believe a more streamline/shared system may have benefited me.
The University of North Dakota was such a great choice for me! The small town atmosphere really helped me feel at home before I even unpacked my bags. The campus is gorgeous, and a brisk, short walk to class is perfect to start your day! There are so many different organizations and clubs for you to join, anyone could find their lifelong friends. The classes and professors have that midwestern hospitality and are always willing to lend a helping hand. I love this college. I never want to leave!
I love the University of North Dakota due to the atmosphere. There are great Athletics to attend and are very fun. The Professors here honestly care for your well-being and try to assist in anyway possible. The advisors I have interacted with are always easy to reach and answer any questions i may have. The housing is awesome with great maintenance. The dining center employees always greet you with a smile, and the food is amazing considering its college food. There are busses that help transport students to class so you don't have to walk in the freezing cold. The experience I have had is like no other, I would recommend UND to anyone!
