Williston is a melting pot of the world. I would say that the school population like Williston, is more diverse than when I moved here five years ago. I have met students from Nebraska all of the way to Africa. Students are friendly and go out of their way to help you. The economic climate of the school I would venture to say is higher than many cities in America because of the oil industry in North Dakota. I feel that Williston State College is doing it's very best to be helpful in the midst of an oil boom.
