3 College Sophomore

Local Area: I have lived in this town since I was five years old. although I was very ready to graduate and get out of town the more people I meet on campus the more things I find to do with them off of campus. I am finding my semesters much more enjoyable this year than my first two.

3 College Junior

Local Area: I think that we could use more activities and events that happen to make the town a little more fun to be in!

4 College Senior

Local Area: 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 Area: 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 Area: Not much to do here.
