Life at NDSU
Attending graduate school is very different from an undergraduate experience. Graduate School is self-directed. Students are responsible for learning the policies and procedures necessary to earn the graduate degree. Students can expect academic rigor, including a higher level of reading and writing.
There are also wonderful opportunities that are part of the graduate student experience. Students often develop collegial relationships with other students. There are opportunities to conduct and present research, choose areas of research specific to interests, participate in department and college committees, and development opportunities.
You will also find the traditional educational, cultural and athletic offerings of a university campus at NDSU.

All graduate students are members of the Graduate Student Council (GSC). The GSC is the representative voice of graduate students at NDSU, formulating policy and advising the Dean of the Graduate School, the University Senate, and the President of the University on the graduate student’s viewpoint concerning all matters affecting graduate student life. The GSC acts to improve the quality of education and social experiences for graduate students at NDSU. Meetings and social events are held regularly.
