GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - UND Student Government is working to build positive relationships in the neighborhoods around campus.

Students went door-to-door in the surrounding neighborhoods as part of the Just Say Hi Program.

The outreach program between the city and UND wants students and families living in the same area to have positive relations.

The students knocked on doors to encourage neighbors to meet and get to know each other.

"Students and community families who know one another or have met one another before tend to have less issues, whether it comes to noise, or maintenance of property, or parking or that sort of thing," UND Student Government City and Governmental Affairs Commissioner Ryan Fitzgerald said.

UND Student Government participates in the program in the fall of every school year.
