Exceptional minds deserve exceptional places, and UND is transforming the campus to provide just that. From Robin Hall — our soaring aerospace building — to the state-of-the-art School of Medicine & Health Sciences, we’re working hard to meet the needs of today’s students. And we’re striving to do so with the latest ideas in environmentally friendly construction.
We’ve expanded the School of Law and Education Building, built the Collaborative Energy Complex, Athletics High Performance Center and the Gorecki Alumni Center. Our new Memorial Union is now open, and we’ve upgraded classrooms as well as the Chester Fritz Library. In the heart of campus, the renovated Wilkerson Commons is the perfect place to dine, study or relax with friends. And you can enjoy all the amenities of an upscale health club at our nationally recognized Wellness Center.
Within six months of graduation, 8 out of 10 of UND graduates are employed — the vast majority in their major field of study — or pursuing graduate, law or medical degrees.
Just look at the achievements of some of our exceptional UND alumni: All-time, most-winning NBA Coach Phil Jackson, Minnesota Twins President Dave St. Peter, New York Times best-selling author Chuck Klosterman, former Buffalo Wild Wings CEO Sally Smith, NHL Seattle Kraken Head Coach Dave Hakstol, NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, Hollywood character actor Sam Anderson, former U.S. Sen. Byron Dorgan, former U.S. Rep. Earl Pomeroy and former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Ed Schafer.
When you ask our UND alumni why they love their careers, they’ll often tell you it’s because they’re making a difference. And you will, too. Whether you’re teaching a kindergarten class, helping people invest their retirement funds, holding a patient’s hand before surgery or flying a family to their favorite vacation destination, you’ll know what you do really matters. They’re all making an impact in ways big and small. How will you make yours?
