Founded in 1883, six years before the state itself was established, UND gave North Dakota its name when the former Dakota Territory separated into two distinct states. Today, UND is a busy 521-acre campus with more than 13,600 students and 2,350 dedicated faculty members and staff. A leading economic driver in the state, the University offers high-quality education in more than 225 academic fields across nine different colleges. It nurtures and supports a strong core of liberal arts and sciences and has developed special missions in life sciences, fine arts, aerospace, unmanned flight operations, engineering and energy disciplines. UND focuses on creating world-class academic programs responsive to the needs of not only the state and its residents but also the nation and the world. Our students come from all 50 states and 94 countries. The University’s far-reaching One UND Strategic Plan — with six core values and seven goals leveraged for maximum impact — touches all corners of the University: high-impact learning, research, enrollment, online education, creation of 21st century programs, alumni relations and more.

 

Living in the Area 

 

Grand Forks, its sister city of East Grand Forks, Minn., and nearby Grand Forks Air Force Base make up the Greater Grand Forks area. Many cite the people as their favorite thing about this college town of more than 65,000, but there’s plenty to see and do. It’s a safe and friendly community that’s as passionate about UND as its students are.

 

With grassland prairies to the west and Minnesota lakes and forests to the east, Grand Forks has been ranked as one of the most livable cities in the country. Short commutes, a great public school system, low crime, ample parks and theaters, and a cost of living below that found in large American cities are some of Grand Forks’ advantages. Grand Forks consistently ranks high in comparative surveys for business, education, quality of life and community safety, making it an excellent choice for families and professionals alike.

Activities include the UND Potato Bowl game and the French Fry Feed, where more than 2.5 tons of french fries were served in University Park, setting a new world record in 2015. The city-owned Alerus Center, home of the UND football team, hosts a variety of major events, including conventions, conferences and big-name concerts. Along with the Chester Fritz Auditorium, located on UND’s campus, and the Ralph Engelstad Arena, Grand Forks has hosted some of the biggest names in music — among them, Elton John, Cher, The Eagles, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Metallica and Aerosmith. The Greenway along the Red River offers 2,200 acres of open, natural settings for four-season recreation.
