    Beautiful campus... even in the winter. I love the charm of the old brick buildings. Only real complaint is my class (VERY immature, conservative, closed-minded, overly religious, and a HUGE lack of any real world experience), which has more to do with the admissions committee. Aside from that I'm glad I chose UND over the other schools where I was accepted. ...Continue reading

    Not horrible to go to UND. If you get the right primary adviser, it can be a great launching pad to graduate school and other opportunities if you are interested and willing to put the work in. Beautiful campus. Grand Forks is an OK town, but winters are horrible. There are some amazing teachers and some crappy teachers so that's a toss-up. The campus sucks for walking around in the winter. The Union always has people to help you out. The dining is usually fairly good. UND has a lot of school spirit so games are always a big event. Overall, it's a decent place to be. ...Continue reading

    UND is a well rounded school with hundreds of options. If you are participating in either Business, Aviation, Engineering, or Nursing, you're pretty well off, seeing that these departments are accredited. However, if you want to focus specifically in any science or math department though, there's definitely better. Overall though, good school. ...Continue reading

    Grand Forks is what it is. but I did learn quickly that you get what you pay for. The quality of teaching, attention, professors, and education was quite a bit better at the private school in comparison with UND. Theres nothing to do in the winter besides drinking, skating and snowmobiling, if you're even in to those. The campus was fine, if a bit run down, budget cuts are killing this place, overall it's meh. ...Continue reading

    UND is a great school, and very affordable if you're fromNorth Dakota or the surrounding states.

    Its a slower pace here in Grand Forks. The people here are friendly, the food is good, and the campus looks pretty good.

    If you like living with no sun and cold winters with brutal winds this is the place for you and if not you will hate every day you are here :) Limited classes that fill up fast and limited teachers.

Don't plan on graduating if you come here, they have a reputation for calling you up in the middle of summer with some bs that you need another class after you've walked at graduation. ...Continue reading

    Love love love UND. Fell in love with the campus the moment I arrived. Joined Greek life and couldn't be happier. Sad to be graduating in less than 6 months - but will forever be a Sioux.

    Its a decent school all around I transferred to UND from a private school in Minnesota because it was expensive.... the chemistry department has been on probation for failing more than 60% of the students for more than ten years.

    North Dakota is cold and flat, but UND is a great school. It's cheap as hell to go to Med school or Law school here if you are a state resident. (Which only requires you live here for a year as far as I know) Weather is cold, but I'm from around here so I like it that way. (No. 1 ranked) Aviation program where lots of Asian country's schools send out smart kids to become pilots. ...Continue reading

    Grand Forks is a GREAT college town. It has some great facilities like the Wellness Center, and a diversity of opinion among professors but Grand Forks requires you to be the outdoor type, into drinking (though you won't be pressured) or willing to watch a lot of Netflix. Most of the professors are pretty nice, the food is decent, and the campus isn't too big and very pretty in the fall and spring. You can always find a party on the weekend if that's your thing, most students are chill and pretty easy going. ...Continue reading

    I went here for one year, and I feel like the only reason it wasn't terrible is because I had friends and family in town and all my classes. For anyone who comes from a busy area, you'll be a bit disappointed with Grand Forks. It's cold and FLAT. Of course you don't HAVE to drink and party, but you feel like you're missing something if you don't, it feels like that's all anyone does. But the people are good, and like to party. Winter gets long, but thats why we drink. ...Continue reading

Be warned, some departments (chem, comm, English, etc.) are absolute trash. So speed through those courses so you don't have to deal with those departments anymore. The social environment and Greek Life is what makes this school amazing. Hockey s a religion here, so if you don't enjoy the sport, make sure you don't tell anyone :) Classes are challenging and professors are fantastic.

    This class was pretty easy, if you pay attention in lecture or review the powerpoints there is no need to get the textbook. The cool part about this class is there is a lot of opportunity to network. The professor asks government officials from all over ND to come and talk to the class.

    No matter who you have as a teacher for Chem121- you need to go to class, otherwise you won't pass. She's been very helpful though if you have any questions or are confused on anything. I've stayed after class multiple times to ask questions and she always answered them . She also does a lot of examples of problems during the lecture too ...Continue reading

    I love Wayne! Class isn't terribly difficult, and attendance isn't technically mandatory (though he does have clicker quizzes every lecture), but he typically makes lectures enjoyable enough to want to attend anyway! If you're needing science credits, definitely try to take this class! ...Continue reading

    Dr. Pyle lays out clear expectations. If you do what she tells you, this class is a breeze. She comes off as cold, but everyone who actually talks to Dr. Pyle knows her as a caring, respectful professor willing to help her students in any way possible. She will not, however, deal with any crap thrown her way. Respect goes a long way! ...Continue reading

    Mattingly is an amazing instructor. the conceptual things are touched on but you should do the homework with the book near by. SHE LIKES TO GIVE FREE POINTS WHEN THE HOMEWORK GETS GLITCHY (ONLINE HOMEWORK) ...Continue reading

    Absolutely terrible. The class itself was easy, but yet a joke at the same time. A definite easy A, so long as you can complete the homework. She is quite scatterbrained at times and will fly off track many times during a lecture. Also, she seems to be terrified of the internet. The readings are written and put together by her. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    Just bad, and expensive. Easy to get an A but painful to go to class. Tests are basically 100% from the notes. She wrote her own text and workbook for the class and all materials written horribly, seemingly unedited. Lectures are almost word for word from the e-book (another required purchase) and every joke she makes in class is also there. Participation requires buying subscription service. Her class is easy, but $500 required. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    Great guy, not the greatest professor. Doesn't explain things, rarely shows examples which is unfortunate because it's an extremely difficult math class. Tests do not match material on study guides at all, and spends too much time lecturing and not enough practice problems. Talks at us not with us. ...Continue reading

    Was a nice person, terrible teacher. However, this was at another lever. I went down from A to C in college comp with this professor. She made me feel like I was worthless and wouldn't accomplish anything in my future. She killed my confidence and made me cry myself to sleep multiple times Gives little/no directions on what you should do but is strict about grading. Gives big and hard assignments without explaining what we should do properly. By taking her class I lost all motivation and inspiration and cried myself to sleep multiple times. Would not recommend her as a teacher, avoid at all cost. ...Continue reading

    I just want to start off by saying I hate writing with a passion. However, Ms. Dahle made this class bearable for me. She is really nice and if you need help all you have to do is talk to her. She is a little goofy but if I every have to take another comp class I would want it to be with her. ...Continue reading

    She is not understanding. Does not do advisorial duties. Has specific expectaions without stating those expectations. Creates tricky tests so no one will get all questions right. Throws questions out of a test if everyone got it right (its too easy then). Can not follow her own syllabus. ...Continue reading

    Ms. Polson is horrible about returning grades to students. I didn't get feedback on my first assignment until the 10th week! Also very hard to reach outside of class, and won't discuss grades over email. I was overall dissatisfied with her, and more than anything tired of her excuses. ...Continue reading

    David pierce is an excellent chemistry professor. Definitely best chem teacher on campus. Clickers are used each class period. The homework load is not too much. The tests are moderately difficult, but that is because it's chemistry. Take CHEM 121 with this guy! ...Continue reading

    Rhiannon really seemed like she was trying, but also seemed very stressed and got cranky often. I had her when she was new though so maybe its gotten better. Her criteria wasn't very clear always as to what she wanted from you with papers. She promotes a lot of discussion which is nice. Prepare for lots of papers and homework. Expect to put in a LOT of work outside of class. Longest paper is 8-10 pages I believe, but that's a standard for the English department. MUST go to class. She takes FOREVER to grade papers. She's a very nice lady but ugh she can be cranky. Definitely have to work for your grade. ...Continue reading

    Dr Barkhouse gives amazing lectures and adds a good amount of humor to them, but you have to still pay attention. He made me enjoy Astronomy, which I was only taking as a essential study. The class is hard if you don't try, but paying attention to lectures will make the tests easy. He also provides many chances to get a high grade. A is 85%, the quizzes are online, and you can drop your lowest test. ...Continue reading

    Old, blind, and deaf. Class consists of powerpoints and pop quizzes. Attendance not mandatory. Online quiz each week but you get plenty of time to do it and look up the answers in the book. Read section reviews to study for tests. Do all of this and you've got yourself an A. easy test. many homeworks ...Continue reading

    Great if you're a visual learner! His main interest is making sure that every student succeeds. He will sacrifice his entire office hour to help a student. By far the best teacher I could have asked for in this course. Take him above the others who teach 121. They are not even comparable to him. He is the reason that I started to enjoy chemistry the most! Possibly the best professor for this class. Goes through a *lot* of sample problems, does a few clicker quizzes every class, and make the lectures as interesting as he can make them. Would recommend him in a heartbeat. ...Continue reading

    She really knows her stuff! easy to listen to and straight forward grader. Don't buy the book, because the tests come straight from lecture slides. Lectures get to be long, but they are interesting and useful. Attendance isn't mandatory, but she makes you hand in a slip of paper each class to show you were there. Do well on the exams, because there aren't many points in the class to make up I would definitley take another class from her. ...Continue reading

    Shaina is the best Chemistry prof at UND. Try to get her if at all possible. Shaina makes it easy to study for tests and is willing to meet with you to talk about what you don't understand.

    This was the biggest waste my my money and time. 1.5 hours of him reading off of PowerPoint slides without a microphone in a lecture bowl. He gave us 2 tests and one writing assignment each worth 1/3 of our grade and did not put any grade in until the final grades were posted by the university. DO NOT TAKE ANY OF HIS CLASSES. Had no idea what my grade was until the semester was over. Had 3 grades in the class, no idea what grade I got in each. Lecture was read DIRECTLY off of the PowerPoint. Painfully long and slow lectures. Do not take a class with this professor ...Continue reading

    This class was pretty easy, if you pay attention in lecture or review the powerpoints there is no need to get the textbook. The cool part about this class is there is a lot of opportunity to network. The professor asks government officials from all over ND to come and talk to the class. Take the time to chat with them and get your name around. ...Continue reading
