Three years into the aviation program getting aSuper BrilliantOther
Three years into the aviation program getting a multi engine rating now - 80000 dollars in debt. Since girls are only 25% of the aviation students I feel out of place all the time even though I?m a more experienced student - some of the stage pilots (girls and guys) are way harsher with girls and sometimes yell at them during a check ride (trust me, it's happened to me and several of my girl friends). You're treated like a number and the entire program is rote memorization requiring no critical thinking or creativity. RETHINK YOUR LIFE if you are considering going here. The first weekend I moved in freshman year, my parents and I passed a frat house in our car with a giant poster hanging from the deck saying ?she called you daddy for 18 years, now it's our turn?. In the aviation department itself, there is ZERO diversity. Right now there are two black girls in the program and a few black guys. Other than that and the international student, EVERYONE else is white and close minded. I was at a scholarship banquet and the DEAN OF AEROSPACE said in front of everyone (international students from Asia, middle east, and students from all over the US), ?okay, now everyone bow your heads and pray to God?. That is how you know you're in the middle of nowhere and in a bubble. I?m queer and was out in high school, but would NEVER be out of the closet up here. This is the most close minded school (especially aerospace) you will ever see.

Question
I enjoyed the area, I liked most ofQuite BrightLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
I enjoyed the area, I liked most of the support staff, fellow students were far friendlier than average and my campus job was an excellent experience. I did not enjoy the folks who promised a tuition assistance package but rescinded it without warning after I committed and moved to North Dakota from the East Coast.

The vast majority of my professors were absolutely wonderful, but two in particular were some of the most awful people I have met in my life and have driven me into being a far more aggressive person (not in a good way) because of their positions in their respective departments; I am working on moving past this and returning to my old cheery self.The coursework was breezy, and homework was light. If it had not cost me 50k more than I was promised, I would have a neutral view of this university - friendly and enjoyable but a bit too carefree and overmarketed - but instead I consider it an expensive mistake.

Question
My review will be short, but I have to agree with most of tBrightAerospace Engineering
My review will be short, but I have to agree with most of the previous reviews about this university. The weather truly is depressing, and it reflects on everyone's mood. Racism it's also something they should be ashamed of. I am as white as white bread, and there were instances where I would be embarrassed about comments that were made towards minorities. If I were an minority I would tell these people to shove their school where the sun don't shine. The worst part was when you saw the skinhead Ne?n-nazis having lunch at the student union's cafeteria. Way to go North Dakota. Your college years should be fun. The University of North Dakota is a depressing place.
