Reflection Spaces

NDSU students, staff, and faculty come from all over the world and represent the wide variety of ethnic, ideologic, and philosophic backgrounds that make our university community a vibrant place to live and learn. We recognize that there are many facets of life outside the classroom that impact everyone’s well-being.
