Middle School Kids Visit MSU

Posted: Updated:

A small group of seventh and eighth graders got an early taste of what college is like this week at Minot State University.

Mandaree students spent 2 days touring the campus, working on art projects, and learning what the campus offers.

This is the first year the school has done this, and the idea is to get more students from the Mandaree area to consider higher education after high school.

The superintendent says that giving these young students exposure to college at this age will plant the seed of potential.

(Carolyn Bluestone, Superintendent at Mandaree) "To make it a possibility, to make it a tangible experience so that in these next very short 4-5 years, because it will pass quickly, that they have the skills and the knowledge necessary to make those big life changing decisions."

Mandaree officials plan to continue this program in years to come.
