Bismarck State College is the perfect school to go to if you are looking for a college to start out at. It has lots of different degree plans and there are many people available to help you out at all times! The faculty and staff there are also very kind and respectable people.
Tips for prospective students
Don't rush into choosing a major! Start out by taking a few classes that sound interesting along with some generals and keep in touch with your advisor. Your advisor is great for helping you solve problems or come up with ideas you might have never thought about!
Dorm Life
I don't live in the dorms, I live off campus, but from what I have heard from friends and classmates that the dorm life at BSC is very laid back.
Food and Dining
The food and dining at BSC is great! There is a cafeteria where you can eat what the cooks make, or there is the Mystic Snack Bar where you can buy something quick and on the go or order a quick meal and sit down in the dining room to eat.
What to do for fun
There are lots of activities that go on all year on campus! There is also a game room in the Student Union that lots of students hang out at to meet new people!
Bang for the buck
BSC is well worth your hard earned money. The professors are great and are always readily available to help you out if you don't quite understand something.
Greek Life
There isn't really a Greek life at BSC.
Campus Safety
The BSC campus makes me feel very safe to be on. There are campus police that are on patrol 24/7 and they make sure nothing slips past them!

Very cost effective way to get your AA or AAS degree. The professors are top notch and very professional. They are always ready to help and answer questions.
Tips for prospective students
Connect with your advisor right away and stay in touch throughout your academic career.
Academic Rigor
The classes are not easy. This isn't a glorified high school!

I live off campus. Have heard the dorms are very nice. They are also building some new dorms.
Food and Dining
The food at the student union is very good.
What to do for fun
Bismarck has many activities going on throughout the school year.There are many parks located throughout the Bismarck /Mandan area to visit and have fun,There is an active Parks and Recreation Department that keeps a full schedule throughout the year. Bismarck State has a lot of on campus activities in which students can participate
Bang for the buck
Very cost effective education.
Great for these types of students
If you are looking to complete your generals and then transfer to a 4 year school BSC would be great for you. They also have a great Energy program and other certificate and degree programs for specialization.
Clubs and Activities
They have many clubs to join.
Greek Life
Not a lot of Greek associations.
Campus Safety
Very safe and well patrolled campus.

BSC is a great place to get your first two years of generals before going off to a larger, far away, more expensive university. It also provides a great variety of 2 and 4-year degrees. The campus is very nice and easy to find your way around.
Tips for prospective students
If you want to stay a little closer to home and save a lot of money, get your generals done here. It's very easy to find your way around campus if you have a map--I'd skip orientation. Despite being a community college, there are great professors and a decent variety of classes.
Academic Rigor
There is a great variety of classes in each available field. You can take it slow or really challenge yourself. The teachers are very professional and helpful--they always make time for private tutoring, and give out lots of contact information.
Dorm Life
The dorms are very nice--good AC and heat, clean bathrooms, comfortable rooms. Best of all, they are very close. Most people don't even drive to class unless the weather requires it.
Food and Dining
There is a great variety of food in the cafeteria. Also, right down the street from campus (less than 5 minutes away) there are countless restaurants -- Subway, Jimmy John's, Texas Roadhouse, McDonald's, Wendy's, Panchero's, Coldstone Creamery, etc. etc. etc. There are also days of the week where the cafeteria provides free ice cream, and there are often BBQ's going on as well.
What to do for fun
There is a great recreational center with a pool and a gym. The campus is full of parks to hang out in. Just down the street is a strip-mall with lots of stores.
