We moved here 6 months ago after my husband was stationed here for the Air Force. I had NEVER heard about ND or anyone who moved here prior. After finally getting here, sight unseen, I will say it is much nicer than I predicted. It's a very clean and quiet town. Great place for families or to raise kids. The schools are nice and well kept. The down side is there's not much to do. There's restaurants and bars, so lots of drinking. It's mostly college students and military that live here. It's also very close to the Canadian borderline, so you're able to drive there. There's long winters that are very bad and mosquitoes in the summer that are the size of flies.
