(Please forgive us for any loud noise that comes from the NDSCS Wahpeton campus that week — we are welcoming students and helping them make memories!)

In addition to student move-in and events, NDSCS Dining Services is excited to share their recent updates with students — The Wildcat Express has added a taco/burrito restaurant and a burger restaurant, and the Wildcat Dining Room has developed a whole new layout, adding a pasta bar (that includes their delicious homemade Mac ‘N Cheese!), and various other food stations. The Den has also experienced updates over the summer to make it even better for our students to hang out and grab a snack at the new c-store.
