Moving to college is a nervous experience. You are excited to start this new adventure before you, but you are leaving your family and friends behind. Being at the University of North Dakota, I could not imagine myself anywhere else. I love the atmosphere, classmates, and my professors. The professors truly care about you and your willingness to succeed. They are there to help you in any way possible to accomplish that goal or grade in the class. The college activities around campus are in perfect distance for those who do not have vehicles. Everyone is very welcoming and genuine about who you are. It is a great place to study, learn, and have fun!

So far, I've been enrolled as an engineering student for two year, and switched my major to Pre-Occupational Therapy. The campus is great and has a lot of opportunities and things to do. It's really cold for most of the school year because it is so up north. The Ralph Engelstad Arena is very unique and is an awesome place to watch some hockey! Like any other college or university, professors are there to research and not there to teach, with a few exceptions of great professors who actually do their job.

There is a good feeling of security on campus. Walking around you can see the blue light buttons everywhere, and you can see the campus police driving around pretty often. And the health at UND is fantastic. They really take care of the students. With a pharmacy on campus, a doctors office to get real checkups, and the counseling center, you feel healthy and safe at this school. Plus the wellness center is amazing for the student's health! UND does a great job in these areas.
