Hi everyone! To give some background, I am an Asian female fresh Graduate from Texas. I received a job offer for an oil-related Job in Dickinson. Honestly, I was a little apprehensive when I first saw the location given how far away I will be from home. That being said, it is a decent paying job for a fresh graduate with rather good job prospects. Will anyone be able to share some insights as to how it will be living in Dickinson? (Apart from the freezing weather, that I definitely know!)

I am excited for the next stage of my life but I am also worried about how I will “fit in” as a minoity. From what I have read on the forum, it seems that ND is quite welcoming so I do hope that is the case! If anyone is from the area, I would love to befriend you 🙂 Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to better prepare my self should I decide to make the move, thank you in advance!

I can't speak for Dickinson specifically but there isn't too much preparation you need to make. As long as you're not a jerk you'll fit in just fine.
