The flu is appearing on the campuses of North Dakota State University and Minnesota State University Moorhead.
The people who deal directly with it say they are seeing more young people coming into campus health centers with flu-like symptoms.
Barbara Lonbaken with NDSU student wellness says they have a plan set to deal with the influx, including dispensing medicine that reduces fever.
At MSUM, Carol Grimm says they are seeing 10 to 15 students a day and have geared up for the flu season and the increased awareness of it.
Grimm says MSUM also has stocked the dorms with Gatorade to help keep students hydrated as they battle or fight off the flu.
