Can anyone tell me, how living and going to school in Dickinson is. I would like to go to the university there, but I am a little worried about how the people will react to me, I am a African American, I guess my question is, are the any black people that live in Dickinson ND?

Historically, Dickinson has not been very diverse. However, because Dickinson is near all of the oil development it is becoming more diverse. I assume you are looking at Dicksinson State University. If so I would recommend taking a look at their demographics and maybe even looking into contacting an African American student there.

You should check out the Student Organization for Unity and Liberation. Its purpose is "to promote the education and culture of African-American students on campus." Get in contact with them and see how they feel about the University and town.

Is there something in particular that is drawing you there?
