4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I admit the little cemetery rigiht outside the school's admissions office is abit disturbing but nonetheless it helps to inspire there is true history in this school and they are not afraid to show it. The outside feel of the park benches, pathways and trees and plants that surround the area help to ease the pressure your on when coming onto campus.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Minot is a growing small town, but it's still very tiny. Most people say that the only thing to do here is drink, and that's kind of true. The shopping is extremely limited, there is no night life unless you enjoy sitting at a bar, and community activities are pretty cheesy. There is one event that is somewhat enjoyable and that's the state fair that takes place every year not too far away from the university.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Not much to do here.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is ok there are many new people in the town creating the atmosphere to have not such a good name.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of things to do on campus but not really off campus. There are still things to do but when you're a college student, you don't want to be spending money all the time.
