The Spring issue of Moorhead Magazine was delivered to campus mailboxes last week and is also available to view online. This issue features stories from the Bakken—but not the same stories you read elsewhere. Read about how alumni artists are responding to North Dakota’s oil boom, and view the extended art gallery online; journalists report how the Bakken has impacted their work and communities; alumni teachers share their struggles of working with a transient population; and guest writer Karl Leonard, associate professor in the Department of Anthropology and Earth Science, writes about the Bakken and the MSUM connection.
We value your feedback. Tell us what you think by emailing Kristi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have an idea for a future issue? Please let us know.

Q & A with Dr. Nandita Bezbaruah
Dr. Nandita Bezbaruah has taught 4 years in the Social Work Department. Courses taught with SL component: SW 250: Social Welfare and Social Work course, COMH 315: Health Agencies and Services, COMH 301: Women and Children Health
What is your background in service-learning?

This is one of the prerequisite courses to apply for the Social Work program.
