  • The high-rises are a great option. Pavek, Seim, Sevrionson, or Thompson are all nice options to live during your first, second, or third/fourth years if you chose to do so.…

    The dining centers are marvelous. They give you many options. There's a salad bar, daily soups and my favorite part are the grills. You can make all kinds of dishes. It gives you an option in case you dislike what they are serving that particular day. The only thing that frustrates me are the times, and some rules. You can't bring in water bottles and fill them up. If I'm paying $12 a meal, I should be able to fill up my water bottle with whatever I want, no restrictions.

    I had lunch there after my tour and the food is so delicious! There are so many options on what to eat and there is a griddle that you can make your own pancakes or whatever on. The dining area is pretty large and has a lot of places to eat as well as a little coffee shop which is also fantastic.

    The dining centers have a wide variety of food from hot to cold to grills that students can use to create their own dishes. Once again, utilize the fact that you do not need to go grocery shopping every two weeks. The unlimited dining plan is great for those late night snacks at 8 pm. Hot fudge Fridays were always the best!

    There are three dining centers on campus, Residence, Union, and West. The Residence Dining Center is the allergen free zone, and is the only center open on weekends and breaks, it is also connected to Reed/Johnson and Weible (both Freshmen only dorms). The Union Dining Center is located in the basement of the Memorial Union and is small, but generally pretty lively due to its central location. Finally West is located in the middle of the four high rises and is across the street from the Residence. The food at all three places is pretty good, and Residence sports a coffee shop (it's free with meals), while West has a pizza parlor.

    The food is amazing! They have so many different places to eat and all of them use your bison bucks. So you never get sick of the food.

    The food is pretty good for being made in large quantities. They have varieties for you to choose from. The dining center also has a grill where you can make your own creations from food in the dining center. The West Dining center has a pizza oven where they make the best pizza!

    Small, but lovely. There's only 3 sororities on campus and about 13 fraternities. But they all have one thing that makes them unique and amazing. I joined Kappa Delta after going through recruitment and loved it. It is time consuming, but very beneficial. They become your family away from home, and have your best interests in mind.

    I'm not apart of greek life, but from what I've seen they seem like a the typical greek frats and sororities. Some frats like to have parties, A LOT. Sororities are more laid back. But I don't really see any crazy shenanigans from them around campus. Like streaking or dressing up the bison statue. I do wish they did more on campus to make themselves more known. Like holding BBqs for everyone and fun events on campus.

    The Greek Life at NDSU strive for quality community service hours. They are friendly and are close friends. I remember one afternoon I walked past a fraternity and they invited me to slack line. I had never even heard of it, but they taught me the basics and invited me to come back again whenever I saw them outside practicing. It surprised me to see how welcoming they are to other students.
