The University Of North Dakota's Aviation Program

"A virtual Harvard College at 35,000 feet" The Department of Aviation at the University of North Dakota (UND) has become a benchmark for aviation-oriented universities around the world. Upon finishing the program, UND Aviation graduates have all the FAA certificates and ratings necessary for employment in the airline industry.

UND's Department of Aviation got its start in 1968 with two donated aircraft and 12 students. John Odegard, a longtime pilot, was the department's founding chair. He had worked as a crop duster to earn his college tuition (sort of a far cry from today's busding campus environment).

Nice. :D
