Student & Graduate Reviews

"It's a great school if you have the drive to do make it through yourself. Academic Advisors were not always readily available and I felt that I had to figure out a lot of things on my own. However, the friendships and connections that I made while attending this intuition are ones that last a lifetime. Although it is not necessarily cheap to attend, it is manageable."

"NDSU is a great school located in Fargo, North Dakota. From a smaller town perspective, there's lots to do and it's a rapidly growing area. The faculty and students are kind and welcoming. It's a conservative area, but the campus is more liberal and geared toward people of college-age. The professors are accommodating to life emergencies and the staff are very helpful. Great student services and career services. Most things are easy to understand and get around, and it's a great price especially for in-state or reciprocity students. If I wasn't moving away for family reasons, I would love to graduate from NDSU. Wonderful school, accomodating, and affordable."

"North Dakota State University is an excellent school to attended. They value their students and have knowledgeable professors who are willing to help students. There are many research opportunities as well as clubs and events to get involved with. The campus is friendly, safe, and diverse. People genuinely care how you are doing whether that be fellow student, grad student, or professors. The Biological Sciences department is forward thinking with a lot of research taking place. The professors are helpful and smart and the advisers set you up with opportunities to help you later when you're looking for a career."

"The general courses were very basic, but as you began your specialized program the courses and professors develop intricate lesson plans that really are challenging. Many courses provided skills applicable to potential careers. There were many opportunities to become involved on campus. Overall, it was a great experience and a essential stepping stone to graduate school."

"Great and prideful school. A lot to difficult being anything but an engineering or science major, because they don't care much for those majors."

"If you get a worthless degree like communications, art, hospitality, philosophy, sociology, or the like, don't bother going to college. You'll never actually pay it off unless mommy and daddy are paying for you. When you fail out of college, it isn't the school's fault, it's yours. Remember those two things and you'll be solid. Oh, and remember to have fun while you're there"

"I was very unhappy with my experience at NDSU. Most of the professors would not help out and the school was not helpful towards the students that transferred into the school."

"College is an incredible experience to learn, grow, and step out of your comfort zone. NDSU for me, offered an opportunity to join athletic groups, be a part of an amazing academic culture, and gave ample opportunities to try new and exciting adventures."
