We stopped into the University to visit the bookstore and see the grounds. The fall colors were not in full season (still quite a bit of green) but it is still a nice place to walk around. They have chimes that were playing while we were there -- not sure if it is a clock tower.

I was visiting my daughter in Fargo and she had a class, so while she was in class I wandered around the campus. I have never seen such a beautiful campus! The books store is great, and just outside the bookstore is a cute little bridge and waterfalls. Excellent photo op!!!

Stopped by here on the way out of town. Went to the bookstore to buy a T-Shirt but they don't sell shot glasses. Epic fail. Lot of construction going on.

Yesterday we attended an Honors Recital for music students. These were underclass students. Wow. We left sooooo impressed with the abilities of these students. And it was free. We heard tenors, sopranos, pianists, baritones, clarinets, trombones, saxophones. By going on the NDSU College of Music website you can find out what is happening in this college. The Inforum.com website also... More

Was there for a few days during a conference. The facilities and people were exceptional. The weather was great. Spent the entire on the campus, but there is so much to offer students who attend there.

I went to both NDSU and UND, and I would say the biggest differences are..... NDSU students majority of them are from rural small towns, and UND a lot of Cities people. UND a lot of people going for career professions, Med,Aeronautics,Law, and NDSU people going for engineering, management. NDSU is more hands on with Students, UND is more on... More
