Hi everyone! just updating my thread.
I have been here since June 21 it is now August 8.
I am having an amzing experience. I love my job, new friends, and the random people Ive met. Lots of nice people!
Lots of nice bars Ive gone to and went to the lake on the fourth. Down town is fun. Very awesome town! Perfect size for me not to small or to big. Nothing like california but it depends on your personality... I am personally having an awesome time.
Thanks everyone!

Which country is your heritage? There are lots of people of all nationalities here in Fargo. You will be treated well.
The Asian American Market and the Lotus Blossum market are pretty well stocked. Not like California, but not bad for this area.

Hi! I am filipino as well. I have seen a few asians but all seem to be immigrants still with the accent. But thank you i will check out the Lotus market!

Glad to hear back from you! I'm happy you like it so far.....I say so far because the winter is just around the corner...I would like to hear from you in January. I think you will be fine, just keep that car in the garage.

Fargo is very racist whites thinks that North Dakota is a white only state I am an African American, the biggest mistake I made was moving to Fargo. They are Fake people, hypocrite, most of them claims to be a Christian but stay hate people because of the color of their skin. I can't wait to leave this place

Can you please elaborate on what led you to this conclusion? What sorts of experiences did you have?

I live in Fargo.
As far as your car goes, it's not too bad. It's been a mild winter, a few days in the double digit negatives. Block heaters are easy to install if you're mechanic savvy. Otherwise, not too expensive at a shop.
There are a few mean people around. But overall, a nice community. I am 26 and have lived all over the south, and just moved back from the east coast. I have lived in Fargo 20 of my 26 years.
You'll grow in quick. Crime is going up but it's not as bad as one would think.
Good luck. Any questions let me know

I think it's been an extraordinary winter. It's as though we didn't have a winter.

My brother used to live in Fargo. I'll give you my straight up, honest opinion. Good luck.

You have the rest of the world, and then you have the Fargo-Moorhead area, which you might as well build a giant bubble around. It is like its own planet. It's flat, the Red River floods a lot, and winters are VERY VERY cold.

In my travels to the Fargo-Moorhead area, I found people to be very insular, unriendly, and hoity-toity. Basically, the only time a local will talk to you is when they're panhandling money from you to buy alcohol/drugs, as there are many addicts in Fargo. Granted, Fargo is not the only place on Earth where this problem exists, but with everywhere I've been, I feel like I've been shaken down for change in Fargo more than anywhere else.

I will say this much, employment is not a hard thing to find in that area. But with so many new people coming in to the Fargo-Moorhead area, one screwup is all it would take for one to likely find themselves out of a job, to be replaced by any of the large lists of other applicants.

And, judging by my brother's experience, where it took him almost three months to find an apartment due to his not so perfect credit, you better hope you have an 800 credit score before you even consider applying for an apartment in Fargo-Moorhead. Oh, and did I mention said apartments are expensive, too?

All it took was a couple trips up there to discourage me from ever considering moving there. And this is coming from a guy who's been to the worst parts of Detroit, Cleveland, and Philadelphia. I would live in the most crime-ridden, run down areas of any of those three cities before I would ever consider living in Fargo.

Oh, and don't dare so much as mumble a discouraging word about NDSU football under your breath, or else you will be ostracized by the whole city.

My opinion? "You betcha".

You will fit in just fine here, along with the thousands of other people moving from California and other states, which is quite frankly overpopulating the area. Just don't tell people you just moved here from Cali..
As far as winters, expect worse than Chicago. It gets very windy and cold sometimes. You will be just fine.
The crime has gotten worse, but not as bad as some Cali cities in sure

Okay this, makes you look like an idiot. You are wrong on almost everything you said. I have lived in Fargo 20 years. I'll correct your mistakes.
There aren't many panhandlers. Very few. And they won't bug you.
It isn't hard to get an apartment with a mid-low credit score. I know many people who have bad credit but easily rent an apartment in their own name. Don't go by your brothers bad credit and the one who probably got denied because of his personal issues. And they aren't expensive. Sure, there ARE expensive ones.. If you look for them. There are 2 bedroom 2 bathroom expenses paid apartments for $650 right now, many of them.
I'd like to know where the "run down" areas are? It's a clean city with no "ghetto" and nothing even close to those dirtbag cities like Detroit and Chicago. You are completely mistaken and spilling false information.
And I completely disagree with the "discouraging words about NDSU" part. I attend NDSU. I hate NDSU bison football. Sure they're the best FCS in the history of FCS football and currently 5 time consecutive champions, but I absolutely hate everything about NDSU football and I talk down about it ALL the time to everyone. Nobody does anything or says anything.

OP, don't listen to this guy, he hasn't lived in Fargo. He's just an uneducated idiot who baffles bad things that he can't have.
Oh and I see he's from Erie PA. I used to live out near there, horrible place. Now I see why he said all those things.
