High school grads look towards future

Graduation is more than six months away, and high school students are beginning to set their plans for the future. Minot State invited prospective students to tour the campus and ask current students questions about their experience at the college.

A little over half of high school graduates choose colleges within 100 miles of their hometown, and just over 70% stay in their home state. At MSU, 34% of students come from outside the state, which can provide a boost to the economy as nearly 60% of North Dakota college students work at least 27 weeks out of the year.

However, the challenge is keeping the graduates in the state.

“I’m finishing my program next year, so I’ll be making more decisions then. I haven’t made any super decisions yet, on that,” says Erin Winterton, MSU Chemistry Education Student.

More than 60% of North Dakota grads opt to leave the state after earning their degree.
