Date: Dec 31 1969 Major: Other (This Major's Salary over time) I am a transfer student from Buffalo, NY. UND attracted me due to it's high standings in the aviation industry. The school itself is not too bad too look at however not very large for anyone used to a school that has over 10,000 students. Most people here are local farmers or from surrounding small communities. The student body is friendly enough however needs to catch up with modern style and technology. The teachers in the aviation program are very knowledgeable and very open minded as well as willing to help. The aviation classrooms and aircraft are very good quality and for the most part no expenses are spared. Flight training at the airport is done in a very safe manner and the CFI's are top quality. The university makes it very difficult to attend if you are not paying out of pocket. The financial aid offices are very disorganized. This year they lost over 500 applications for aid because of a new computer system. Some students including myself waited over 3 months to receive any aid at all. The weather is here is cold and windy which is not very conducive to flying especially during the winter months. Nightlife is no existent. There are a few bars that locals attend but nothing that would be considered any type of a club or hotspot. The city is pretty small and has little if any culture at all. Overall my advice is that is you are from any type of a large college or city you will not be pleased with the setting here. It is very difficult to get used to sitting in your room night after night because of a poor selection of things to do. If you are from a small town and don't mind fighting with financial aid to get money to fly and finish up your flight courses and also enjoy the country and a clear line of sight over the surface for miles around this place is for you. This student will be transferring out ASAP
