Discover North Dakota State University let interested students see what campus has to offer
Discover NDSU is an event put on every year for high school students from across the region to come and see what a day in the life of a student at NDSU looks like. Prospect students and their parents were able to visit campus on Oct. 17 and 18 partaking in a morning or afternoon session.
While in their session, students and their parents obtained information about different degrees and classes that are offered straight from NDSU’s professors, club leaders and advisors.
“Getting to see the classrooms and the students learning hands on, was amazing. This feels like somewhere that I could be able to call home.” Shea Mccabe, one of the students that attended NDSU’s Discover event Thursday morning, said.
They started with a campus tour to get a feel for what it would be like for them to be students here, travelling from class to class. “I’m mostly excited because the tour,” Mccabe said.
“I’ve been on a lot (of tours) at different schools and this is the first time that I felt I really got to see what it would be like to be a Fashion Merchandising student.”
The students and their parents also learned about study abroad opportunities, financial aid and research opportunities that are offered.
At the end of the five-hour tour covering everything they need to know about NDSU, they were then treated to either lunch or dinner at the Residence Dining Center.
The majority of the interested students thought the food served in the dining center was good. Even the parents were excited to come and visit so that they could have another chance at one of NDSU’s meals.
By the end of their trip, most of the students said they are excited to meet new people and get out of the high school atmosphere.

They also discussed how they are ready to transition into this new experience of college life and adulthood.
As college admissions and applications are being filled out, NDSU can expect to see a new Herd on campus next year.
