Overall Rating

I THINK THE SCHOOL OVERALL IS GREAT AND WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE TO GO TO NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY. THE STAFF WAS ALL VERY HELPFUL WITH GETTING REGISTERED FOR SCHOOL. THE ONLINE PROGRAMS MADE IT EASY TO ACCESS AND NAVIGATE IN THE PROPER WAY.


Overall Rating

NDSU has a very warm and inviting atmosphere. For someone who has grown up in a small town, it is absolutely perfect because the campus is separate from the the big city of Fargo. Therefore, it has a small-town feel. The staff and students that I have met on visits are very welcoming and they make me feel like I belong there. Being that it is not a huge school, the student to faculty ratio is a reasonable one. I am very excited to be going there for my freshman year of college!
