Thanks to the generosity of our volunteer tutors, we are happy to provide free one-on-one tutoring sessions in our Study Center during office hours Monday through Friday. Schedules for each volunteer, as well as the classes they tutor, can be found in the OMP. Please sign up in person at least one day in advance, and reserve only one appointment at a time!
Multicultural Student Listserv
The Office of Multicultural Programs sends out a regular listserv newsletter email with updated and new information on scholarships, internships, job and volunteer opportunities, as well as planned activities and events. The newsletter is sent on the 1st and 15th of the month during the academic year, and on an unscheduled, as-needed basis during the summer. Most students find this helpful in their search to cover tuition costs, in gaining experience toward their career goal, and finding places to mingle with other multicultural students.
Although we try to limit the number of emails you receive from us by condensing the vast majority of them into this newsletter, there are times you will also receive individual emails from us. These emails may be about scholarships that expire before the next newsletter or local social events to attend or anything in between. You may opt out of the listserv and read the newsletters on our website, but by doing so you will miss the last-minute reminders of items or events that didn't make it into a newsletter.
If you are a multicultural student and identified yourself as one in your student records, you will be included in this list, or you can contact us at NDSU.Multicultural@ndsu.edu to be included.
The Office of Multicultural Programs (OMP) features a student study area furnished with seating for studying, use of personal laptops or meeting with tutors. There are also two cluster-style computers for students to use. The Study Center is located in the Memorial Union, Room 178, and is open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (7:30 a.m. to 4:00 summer).
Laptop Lending Program
Students who have a short-term need for a laptop computer can borrow one from the Office of Multicultural Programs. Laptops are loaned for a maximum of one week at a time. This is to ensure that as many students as possible are able to utilize this resource. First-time borrowers should allow a day for their enrollment to be verified. Read this for additional info and example of agreement. Contact our office for full details.
The laptop lending program was started through grants from Cargill and 3M Corporation.
