UND has been a wondeful experience for me, despite the lack of academic challenges. The campus is a beautiful place, littered with fountains, interesting old buildings, and greenery…in those few months when it's not coated with thick layers of snow. The University understands that is lacks challenges for intellectual students and strives to accommodate this by providing a strong Honors program and unique credit-earning opportunities (for example, one course travels to Theodore Roosevelt National park for a camping trip to study the ecology of the area, another course taught by the editor of the local newspaper provided a very accurate view of the word of newspaper editing).

Something very special about UND is the school spirit and student comradery. To witness pure, unadulterated school spirit you must attend a Fighting Sioux hockey game. The student section is a muddle of extreme emotion, from chanting the humorous cheers (Give me an O, give me an R, give me a G, give me a Y! What's it spell? Orgy! What's it mean? Teamwork!!!) to singing

In Heaven There Is No Beer
to staging a riot when a blind ref makes a bad call to hugging random students nearby you when a game-winning goal goes in at the last second…it's exhillerating. :)

The student comradery really beamed when fellow student Dru Sjodin was abducted, raped, and murdered in Fall 2003. Thousands of students and community members skipped classes and work to walk miles in freezing cold and freshly fallen snow in search of any signs of Dru. Prayer services were held across campus and everyone banded together to support those who truly felt her loss.
