    The quality of the degree is amazing for what you pay compared to many other top rated universities in the area.

    For how much I was paying, I was disappointed in the dorms and dining centers. Dorms are dated and the washer and dryer systems was a phenomenal wreck. Dining centers were nice, but restrictions including time and silly rules made many upset. Classes are worth it, except for large lectures. I had multiple classmates that simply never showed up because they didn't have any repercussions for their lack of motivation.

    The tuition for NDSU is extremely affordable for how much is offered here and how well-respected of a school it is. It also has reciprocity with Minnesota which is extremely helpful.

    NDSU, for a state university, has pretty cheap tuition for the academics it provides. It is an excellent university overall, and the price helped me to choose this school over the other three I was thinking about. You will receive a secure campus, pretty decent food, challenging academics, amazing people, and more from NDSU for the relatively small price (in comparison to other state universities) they request.
