Fargo, N.D. – An article in the Wall Street Journal, “Frigid North Dakota is a hot draw for college students,” notes NDSU’s growth as a nationally-recognized research university and college of choice. The article notes NDSU’s ranking in the elite “very high research activity” category of the Carnegie Commission on higher education, the school’s educational value for students, and its international focus.
Several NDSU students are featured in the article, including Maduka Bandara of Sri Lanka, who graduated from NDSU after working with the Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering in the NDSU Research and Technology Park. Bandara now works for Pedigree Technologies, a company founded by NDSU alum Alex Warner, located in the NDSU Research Park.
