It is a good campus if you are going for diesel. There are a lot of guys who like pick ups and motors and share similar interest. It is easy to get to know people. Wahpeton is a big enough city so you don't need to travel too far for essentials.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

When researching colleges, it is always good to know the job/career placement rate when researching potential colleges. I know from advertisement and from experience that NDSCS has a great LPN and RN program in which they both have a great NCLEX pass rate and job placement rate. I had a favorite associate professor that was very flexible and was able to answer all my questions whenever I needed her. The campus is small, but instructors get to know who you are instead of being just a number. The nursing department was definitely my favorite department as there is always flexibility and great professionalism. Sports enhanced my educational experience at NDSCS.
