    NDSCS is one of the most affordable 2 year colleges around, and I really feel like I'm getting a quality education here. I feel like I'm learning more than I would at a bigger campus.

    There are lots of Minnesota students here because it is cheaper in North Dakota than in Minnesota. Minnesota does not have any junior colleges that have anywhere near the facilities that NDSCS has. Our campus looks more like 4-year college- football field, pool, theater, etc/

    At first it may seem like it is not the right college because it is small but once you start to make new friends it is so much fun. I encourage students to spend at least two semesters here before thinking of transferring, it is a great school and class sizes are perfect.

    The value for the price is great. I'm in the Nursing program and with the two years, I will be fully prepared as an LPN.
