If you are considering this college, please visit it in the winter before attending. It is a lot different. People aren't around as much and there isn't as much going on. Also, make sure you talk to the department you are planning on getting into. Some departments are good, but some are not very good at all.
Overall, I would recommend NDSU for people who are comfortable with rural life. Fargo is a slightly desolate down for those used to urban areas.
Pros of NDSU:
- Lots of nice people
- Slow paced town
- Fun classes
- Easy to make friends
- Easy to get into
- Farily successful new Division 1 Athletics
Cons of NDSU:
- Large mix of teachers
- Lots of graduate students teaching classes as TA's
- Low admission standards lead to lots of "not so bright" people entering college
One thing people should know about NDSU that they have probably not already heard is that you pay for 12 credits as long as you take at least 12. That means if you are taking 20 credits, you only pay for 12.
