Having visited quite a few NHL arenas in the past, this was my first to a college rink, leaving me very impressed. Plenty of seating, professional quality rink with an unmatched atmosphere. Would add this to the bucket list of any hockey fan!

This facility is as nice or better than a professional venue. Home of the Fighting Hawks of UND - go Hawks! I hope to catch a game at "the Ralph" this year.

One of the best venues in all hockey. The seating, though nicely cushioned, are confining for the large or tall. Our foreign visitors are always amazed at the beautiful decor.

Overall was very pleased. Easy getting in and to our seats, including a stop for food on the way. Was there for a concert, which was excellent. The seats seemed a little narrow, but we made it work. Got back outside quickly after the show...More

We LOVE LOVE LOVE our hockey games and the Arena is one of the best around to go to. Buy your tickets early to get the best seats!

Went to participate in a fun ringette tournament with teams from Winnipeg. Played in the Olympic arena first and it was nice, second day played at the Ralph. Top notch, a mini MTS centre. Granite flooring, comfortable seats and even though concessions were closed there...More

It's an impressive arena and a great venue for watching hockey. Hockey games are a must for anyone living in Grand Forks to try at least once.

When you walk into the Engelstadt arena, you are greeted with tradition and history. And when you walk out , you truly know what loyal fans and a loyal city to UND Hockey, look like. Love this place!

Great game against team USA. Cheap tickets on the glass! Found lots of goodies in the Sioux Shop. Many great food options could easily just have dinner here before a game or concert come early to watch the band near section 105 area.

I recommend the Expressway Suites by the Alerus Center. Just a few blocks from the Ralph. Reasonable rates and great staff.
