3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Pretty much everyone drinks - you are definitely left out if you don't. It's a small town so there's not much else to do. However, policy depends on the RA some may let it slide, whereas for others you are written up automatically.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Sometimes the wireless Internet is very slow and hard to connect to. I wish they would allow more printing credits, since I print off pretty much everything.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are some parties in the dorms (just small gatherings though). As for the bar scene, there are many bars in town however, they are more country bars - no high status there. On Thursday nights the bowling alley (which is attached to a bar) has College Night for all the college students. A lot of people go and it's a lot of fun. For transportation there are taxi services late at night.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The winters are very long!!!

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Apply for it! And keep in touch with your admissions counselor, asking what scholarships you are eligible for.

5 College Freshman

Academics: My class size is very small so we get lots of individualized attention.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There aren't as many options as some other schools, but what they do offer is great. The majority of professors teach really well and are very friendly and approachable.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The campus doesn't really provide any transportation, but everyone is allowed to have a car. If you don't have a car, it's easy to find someone who does.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The people here are great and the living space is perfectly adequate.

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: Our dining service is absolutely awful, but there are not many other options other than off campus dining. The java hut is pretty good though and provides what you need.

Transportation: Most people carpool, so having a car is not necessary. You can usually find a ride to wherever you need. Having a car is really useful though in case you can't find a ride, since we have a very limited bus system.

5 College Junior

Majors: Our program is quite rigorous, but it is an excellent program. We only have one person on the faculty for this particular major, so the student to teacher relationship is superb, which makes up for the difficulties of the program. You will leave fully prepared for your next step in life.

College Junior

Majors: Getting an internship is relatively simple. The college works with many offices in town, but if you find somewhere that isn't working with the college and get an internship there, UJ will usually find a way to give you credit for that internship.

Off-Campus Housing: The town of Jamestown itself has a lot of different options if you want to move off campus. Most of the apartments are close to campus. Actual houses are further away.

5 College Junior

Diversity: We actually have a really diverse campus. We have students from around the country and the world. The majority tend to be Christians from North Dakota, but not all. We also have many LGBT students on campus. Everyone is very accepting of everyone's differences.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: We don't have visitation hours. Girl and guys can be in each others dorms 24/7 as long as you don't "stay the night." Drinking if found on campus is a small fine and a class, even if you are underage. Drugs will get you kicked off campus at the very least or expelled.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: We don't have a health center because there is a walk in clinic less than a block from campus. Our security is very minimal,but can be called if needed. The police department is here quickly if there is a more pressing emergency.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some of the buildings are pretty old and historic. The freshman halls are not that great at all, but the upperclassmen dorms are fantastic and relatively new.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Since it is North Dakota, we have a lot of bars in town. You can walk to any of them if you really want to or get a DD if you really need it.

5 College Junior

Computers: There are several computers in every building. You will always have access to wifi or a computer if you need one.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't a whole lot of places to eat off campus, but most of the students work at restaurants when they're not in class, so it makes for a nice lunch or dinner with friends.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics is a major part of campus. Quite a few of our students come to UJ for athletics.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: You can be in as little or as much as you want. We're a pretty involved campus, however. The education is top-notch and the professors genuinely care about you, whether you are in their department or not. Our student activities department rocks. There's always an event going on. If there isn't an SAC event going on, then there is usually some kind of sporting event you can go to.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's North Dakota, so expect some really really cold temperatures. The first month is pretty hot here too, but then things start to take a turn for the chilly. If you love the snow, then here's your dream university.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The people are great and extremely friendly. There's a group for everyone whether you like theatre or partying, or both. You tend to know almost everyone since it is a small campus, but it's big enough that you don't have to hang out with them.
