One week before NDSU classes begin, students will receive Melissa's email which includes their ID number, user ID name and instructions for setting up their Blackboard account at NDSU.  Students may then set their own password and security questions, choose to forward emails to a different account, and activate their NDSU Live account.

Jenna Kilawee smiling at the camera as a female resident in her assisted living facility sits next to her kissing her cheek.I needed something flexible that would allow me to "attend" classes in the middle of the night, on the weekends, while at home with my newborn son, or whenever I could spare a minute.  The Great Plains IDEA program allowed me to do just that.  I was able to continue my life while advancing my career.  Even before I graduated I had job offers lined up that I had only dreamed about before pursuing my master's degree in gerontology.
