It may be the middle of February, but the young leaders from universities all over the state, are already getting ready for events for the 2014 fall semester.
This weekend, 96 student leaders from 11 North Dakota higher education facilities came to Minot to discuss campus activities, as well as nominations for next year's student government.
Guest speakers included MSU president Dr. David Fuller, and North Dakota Legislator Karen Krebsbach from Minot's District 40.
The NDSA president says these bimonthly meetings are essential to keep up with university events, and that making connections with other leaders is what these students learn from most.
(Jennifer Vetter, President of NDSA) "It's just networking, and making the friendships, and professional connections with other student leaders that you can get ideas from, or maybe you'll end up working together someday. And just really starting to build our professional skills is one of the biggest things that I see happening at NDSA."
