There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. And while the media tends to focus on just a handful of schools, we at College Coach encourage students to think outside the box during their college selection process and explore a wide range of colleges, including this week’s School Spotlight, University of North Dakota. Offering 101 majors in everything from communication and cyber security to Norwegian and nursing, the University of North Dakota is proud to provide its over 10,000 undergraduates a top-notch education in a friendly and spirited environment. While the majority of students flock to the College of Arts & Sciences, it’s in the School of Aerospace Sciences where you’ll find the university’s popular aviation-themed majors. Future pilots, aviation managers, and unmanned aircraft system (UAS) operators will swoon over the school’s fleet of high-tech airplanes and helicopters. And thanks to career path partnership agreements with over a dozen airlines, UND ensures students’ careers will take off (literally!) after graduation. Located in the fantastic college town of Grand Forks, North Dakota, UND draws students from all fifty states, with high percentages from North Dakota and neighboring Minnesota. UND’s Fighting Hawks compete in 17 Division 1 athletic teams (including the ever-popular men’s ice hockey team that’s won eight national championships) and 50 student-led club sports. Ballroom dancing or bass fishing, anyone? While UND features the state’s largest library with over 1.6 million volumes, did you know that music lovers can also access one of the area’s most extensive music libraries on campus? It’s the perfect place for music majors to appreciate thousands of records, CDs, and musical scores.
