MSU Begins

Posted: Updated:

Enrollment is on the rise at Minot State University for the first time since the 2011 Mouse River flood.

University of North Dakota officials advised MSU President Dr. David Fuller that recovering enrollment after a flood could take three years.

Dr. Fuller says MSU recruitment staff has focused on out-of-state and international students, but preliminary numbers show that MSU enrollment is up by about 4-and-a-half percent on opening day.

(Dr. David Fuller, Minot State University President) "We've been very vigilant in increasing the number of recruiters and doing different things to market Minot State in a positive way. So it's all very positive and it's good to know that we're recovering after that decline."

It's the centennial year at Minot State.

A number of celebrations will be taking place throughout the year, but the first will be a block party in front of Old Main on September 21.

Everyone is welcome and Dr. Fuller says he's expecting more than 2500 people.
