Elementary Students Visit MSU

Posted: Updated:

There are things that can't be learned in a classroom.

But there are also things that CAN be learned --- by visiting someone else's classroom.

The fifth grade class at Jeanette Myhre Elementary School in Bismarck adopted Minot State University three years ago.

Each year, the fifth graders travel to MSU for a day for the university experience.

The first stop today was a salamander session, where Professor Chris Beachy shared a hands on experience in the biology lab.

Fifth grade teacher Jeremy Braaflat is a graduate of Minot State and he says that enrollment services can benefit from the recruitment opportunity as well.

(Jeremy Braaflat, 5th Grade, Jeanette Myhre Elementary, Bismarck) "We talk about college from kindergarten all the way up to sixth grade because a lot of the students might not realize that after high school there are other opportunities other than just, you're done with school, now go find a job."

The two fourth grade classes travel to the eastern side of the state.

One class visited UND yesterday and last week the other fourth grade class visited NDSU.

    For more than 80 years, the International Peace Garden has been a blooming symbol of friendship between the US and Canada. Sitting astride the border separating North Dakota from Manitoba, the garden brings together woodlands, ponds, grassland, and amazing gardens to make its point.
