5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love Fargo so much! There's a lot to do with not as much hussle and bussle!

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: In Fargo North Dakota it is a very interesting place. The people here are very nice compared to any other state I have ever been to. If you're younger the bison football games are a blast! the weather here is the only downfall, because it is very cold in the winters.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love Fargo. Great shopping, cool downtown environment, but not a lot to do for people under 21.

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere of the town differs greatly depending on where you go just because Fargo itself is such a large city. theres always something to do except for the really outdoorsy types, Fargo's pretty flat and there isnt a lot to do in the way of hiking or skiing

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Fargo is a relatively safe town, though it does still have crime. The Fargodome hosts many events, including concerts of well-known artists. I think Pink and Justin Timberlake both have shows coming up. If you're into lake activities, there are some nice ones less than an hour and a half away. (Maybe some are closer, those are just the ones I know). There are several bars/pubs and nightclubs, many of which have their own activities and attractions (several host local bands or have karaoke nights). NDSU hosts events that are alcohol-free and open to under-21s. The West Acres Mall has a variety of popular stores, and there are some nice boutiques downtown. People don't seem to be condescending or disdainful towards students (unless they're disrespectful or ridiculous), but I may have just missed out on that type of interaction due to the 'bite-me' face that I show when people are rude without good reason.
