Overall Experience: The University of North Dakota is an overall great school and provides a vast variety of different majors one can pursue. Although the town of Grand Forks can be quite frigid in the winter months, the campus is still quite beautiful. However, moving from the Minneapolis area to Grand Forks was quite an adjustment due to the major differences in the community.

Overall Experience: I enjoy watching and supporting our schools hockey program. Go Sioux!

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Here for school nothing else at this point. Coming from a larger city the pace and attitude of life is far too different and finding a like minded group of people has been near impossible. The classes showcase the lack of quality education in rural America as most classes have been absolute jokes and my major classes are the only ones that require any sort of work at all to get a decent grade. Most students care more about the logo on the school's hockey jersey than their actual grades or performance and drinking on the weekend means even more to them. It's not rare to hear people complain about how they're going to fail out of freshman business classes because they've been partying too hard. The best crowd of people seems to be the ones in upper level aviation, law or medical classes. International students also make the campus a better place but get ready for subtle and not so subtle racism from the locals when you hang out with them. North Dakota was a mistake and I regret choosing to go here every day.

Overall Experience: I love the overall look of the campus. Students, professors and staff are mostly kind and helpful. However, it seems like the administration here care more about money than the well being, education and overall wants of students. Fabulous hockey program and it is really what puts North Dakota on the map when compared to schools located outside of the midwest.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like being in a big city with a lot of likeminded people. It's pretty tough finding a crowd that's into the same types of things I'm into, which is pretty frustrating. That's why I'm considering transferring.

3 College Sophomore

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I grew up in the Grand Forks area so I always said I would never go to UND. I wanted nothing more than to get far away. Then I actually walked on campus. It automatically felt like home. I guess I'll be in the area a little longer than I originally anticipated.

Off-Campus Dining: I eat out a lot off-campus. There are a lot of options such as ethnic resturaunts, big chain resturaunts, fast food places, and one of a kind resutaunts

Administration: The admisinstration is fair to all students. Parking is very strict and can be very annoying sometimes.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: They have very limited scholarship options at the university. The financial aid process was easy to do,

Scholarships: They are much more tedious with the paperwork and reporting of additional scholarships you are applying for. They claim if you receive additional non-declared scholarships that they may make you pay back you financial aid. I do not think it is reasonable to base financial aid awards on scholarships that are being applied for when the student has no idea if they will receive them or not.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Partying is fun but it's totally overrated.
