Minot State Symposium Begins

Posted: Updated:

Minot State's 'Great Plains Symposium' kicked off this morning at Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on the MSU campus.

As a part of the celebration of the school's 100th year, the symposium has been designed to look back at how Minot State helped shape the region.

Speakers took to the stage today, and panel discussions were held talking about the history of not only Minot State, but the region as well.

(Dr. Joseph Jastrzembski - Minot State University) "In a way this is looking at Minot State's history. But putting it within a larger context. Looking at the immigration to the plains, looking at development of normal schools, looking at the plains as a region, looking at MSU's role as a player here."

The highlight of the two day event is tonight as well-known author Ian Frazier gives the keynote address.

He talks at seven at Ann Nicole Nelson Hall -- it is free and all are welcome to attend.

The symposium wraps up tomorrow.
