  • Outstanding Faculty: Over 70% of our faculty holds Ph.D.'s - a better percentage than at most research universities!
  • Small Class Sizes (typically under 20): Students get the kind of 1:1 attention from faculty you won't see at other universities.
  • Undergraduate Research Opportunities: Students who have conducted research as undergrads have a major advantage when applying for jobs or further study. At most universities, research is only conducted at graduate or post-graduate levels.
  • Hot Majors: We offer major programs like Health Science and Fisheries and Wildlife Science that you won't find elsewhere!
  • Great Curriculum: Our curriculum emphasizes hands-on work with the sciences so it becomes more than theory - it becomes real!
  • State of the art facilities: Our Rhoades Science Center is receiving a $10.3 million renovation and expansion slated to be completed Fall, 2013!
  • Extracurricular Opportunities: Our students can get valuable experience participating in such science-related activities as the Fisheries & Wildlife Conservation Club, the VCSU Planetarium, the Medicine Wheel Park, or the regional Science Olympiad.
  • Great Career Opportunities: Our graduates have gone on to exciting careers in industry, research, and education, and VCSU is known for doing an outstanding job preparing students for further study in graduate and professional schools. With our outstanding teacher education program, VCSU does a great job preparing students for careers in education, and teachers in math and science are in very high demand - both in North Dakota and nationwide.
  • Great Scholarship Opportunities
  • Most importantly, we make it fun!
