NDSU has been a major disappointment to me.Bright
NDSU has been a major disappointment to me. Honestly, I cannot believe I made it this far. Unless you want to drink yourself into oblivion or spend your money eating out, there is virtually nothing to do outside of school. Many of my fellow students that I have talked to are severely depressed and have contemplated taking their own lives because of this place. I personally am struggling with depression because of my time here. The quality of education here is an absolute joke. I have studied hard, done alright academically (3.0 GPA) and still feel like I have learned nothing. The professors are arrogant, fail to teach the material effectively and treat you like you are nothing. I feel guilty for using my family's money at this university.If you are a high school student considering this university, I want you to do yourself a life changing favor and cross this place off the list. That is, unless you want an depressing, impersonal, mind numbingly boring college experience. There are so many other options out there and I would feel terrible if you ended up selecting this university. Remember, at NDSU you are a serial number, not a real person.

Mechanical Engineering building and labs are very oldQuite BrightMechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering building and labs are very old and outdated. Some lab equipment is from the 60's and most is pre 1980. Prof's are ME Phd's but not educated or skilled in teaching. I have been told ND prof's get low pay therefore for most Prof's English is not the first language so communication is not a strength.

Being in ND it's pretty friendly and slowQuite BrightZoology
Being in ND it's pretty friendly and slow paced. For people around here it's a pretty big college and city but if you are coming from a big city it's probably not going to have that feel. It is a smoke free and dry campus. We do get a good number of international students and teachers. There's quite a few organizations for students. The student fee is pretty high especially if you don't even want to use the wellness center which doesn't have a pool but otherwise is pretty nice. ACE tutoring is free but is understaffed and not always very helpful. The parking can be expensive and there needs to be more but you can find some free places on the streets. With a student ID you can also ride the city bus for free. Also be prepared, it does get very cold and windy here.
