I would highly recommend UND to people for various reasons, but the three that first pop into my head are community, education, and personal growth! There is a strong sense of community on the UND campus. On a campus with no mascot, meaning to rallying point, I came to UND expecting to see the student population fractured, but to my surprise this was not the case. Students are just as close if not closer to each other than any campus with a mascot! I see this in the every day interactions students have with each other, in classes when they work professionally together, or socially where any student is willing to free up time to lend a helping hand even for people they barely know. Students on campus are close and offer a shoulder to cry on or a strong push in the right direction. I can only imagine what it will be like when there is a mascot on campus and the students feel as if they are all one entity! The education on campus is wonderful, something that I noticed as I got further into my course work at UND is that UND may not get all the credit and publicity it deserves, because it is in an area not many people want to move to or live in. My education at UND, so far, has been very enriching and fulfilling. With a wide variety of classes and professors who go out of their way to help students as well as the amazing academic advisors and other academic support systems on campus, I is quite disheartening that UND doesn't receive better praise for it's academic atmosphere! I would suggest that any student coming to UND be prepared to work hard and learn a lot! The final thing I want to highlight, out of the many things, that I think makes UND worth coming to is the opportunities for personal growth! College is all about learning and personal growth, and UND has such an amazing atmosphere for personal growth. The only people at UND who are close enough to home to go back to their parents for advice and comfort, are those students who attend UND that live in Grand Forks. Other wise, most students are cut off from their parents, physically at least. This physical separation immediately causes an internal conflict making students decide wether or not they are ready to grow up and move on or if they need to be closer to home. Students are also forced to handle their own problems on campus and parents don't always have look into the students lives so students are solely responsible for their actions! With constant programs discussing social justice students can learn about how they can do to help! Other programs allow for self discovery covering a wide range of topics, personal or altruistic, students have an excellent opportunity on campus to grow. These are only three reasons out of the hundreds why UND is such an amazing campus and why students should come to UND, but they speak for the campus and all its glory.

The community is fantastic, it feels like home. It is a great school that is affordable, I could go to any school online now a days, but UND is a school with a great reputation and I can make it affordable. The third reason is the opportunity. With a medical school, law school, aviation school, entrepreneurship school and great athletics, you can chase any dream you want.

I would say the top three reasons why an individual should attend the University of North Dakota is first of all the many great professors who are here, secondly because of the great education you receive with the small price tag compared to many other universities, and lastly because of the large university feel but still only having an average class size of 22 which makes it easier to make relationships with your teachers.

First, the tuition cost is quite reasonable for resident and Minnesota residents, due to the Reciprocity agreement. The tuition becomes a flat-rate instead of per credit once you meet the full-time requirements. Second, it's in a prime location. Grand Forks has a wonderful downtown, with cool shops and eateries, and other necessities (shopping, hospital, etc.) are not too far. It's not a huge city, but all the major necessities are here (and not to mention a kick-butt hockey team at UND). Thirdly, there is a boom in housing opportunities, especially student-living and affordable, subsidized housing, so there is a wide array of living arrangements with varying locations, styles, and pricing.

I am a DEDP student, so I would say the ease of taking courses online to obtain an engineering degree, the availability of courses online being the same as on campus courses, and the helpfulness and attentiveness of the instructors.

The support of the staff is amazing and their overworked Veterans department is dedicated to supporting the non-traditional students. The online course work is detailed, comprehensive, and has tons of material to support the topics. The help desk is on top of all technical issues students might have.
