BSC is pretty cheap compared to the other schools in North Dakota. The teachers here are really nice and they seem to care about their students. There is free ice cream in Wednesdays and Fridays in the cafeteria, and sometimes there are other special events involving food including: Kuchen for Oktober fest, free brownies, and during the warmer months, someone will grill hot dogs for everyone.

I just wish I would have waited a year before entering school so I could have really thought about what I wanted to study in college.

My flexibility is amazing. I think it has a lot to do with the relationships from students to teachers. We are very close knit, they notice if your missing. Also many teachers make it hard for to do badly. Professors here are not afraid to admit they are human, have lives and families. I am able to go to school full time, play a college sport and work on the side. I love it!

My major is biology, while I am also planning on minoring in education. Biology is my favorite science subject and I really enjoy the curriculum and how the professors teach. They encourage on asking questions and will assist in delving deeper into questions an individual may have. One job opportunity that the Biology department has is a work study, where a student sets up labs and learns the ins and outs of how a biology lab works. The work load is average and I have never felt too overwhelmed or short on time for any of our assignments or projects.
