A video series exploring various programs of study "At NDSU."


@ NDSU is a video series created by NDSU graduate and undergraduate students to explore various programs of study "At NDSU." Through this series, students get to view the type of real world learning they can expect when they are admitted to a program of study at NDSU. When learning gets tough it is important to remind students of the fun and joy in learning new things

The @ NDSU video series was developed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic when high school students were no longer able to come to campus to interact with NDSU students. To continue making these connections our students took to a platform they know best, YouTube. Though these connections are not in person, most of our students are thrilled to discuss what they are learning in their programs with interested students. If you would like a graduate or undergraduate student to speak with your class, email ndsu.otl@ndsu.edu and we can find a student in a program of your choice.
