Dragons in the News

Posted on September 26, 2016

Take a look at the news stories featuring MSUM in the last week.

Encouraging Diversity in the Red River Valley, KVRR: “After the UND Snapchat controversy went viral, some people are asking if schools and communities are doing enough to educate students about diversity sensitivity. NDSU and MSUM both have plenty of information online highlighting the importance of diversity on their campus.”

Former Dragon Sevlie to Play Overseas, WDAY: “One of the best players to ever play for the Dragons will continue his career overseas. Former all-conference forward Isaac Sevlie has signed with BK NH Ostrava in the Czech Republic, a team that competes in the highest level in that country.”

How College Career Counseling Can Help Students, North Dakota Today: “Many students enter college not knowing what they want to do once they graduate. Director of the Career Development Center, Troy Nellis, with MSUM shared how career counseling can help and what options there are for students.”

Election ’16: Minnesota Secretary of State Visits MSUM, KVRR: “Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon made a stop in Moorhead on his annual trip around the state. This year he’s focusing on increasing voter turnout. His first stop was at MSUM.”

Dragons Linebacker Roehrich has Sweet Hairstyles and Math Skills, Inforum: “Minnesota State Moorhead linebacker Abe Roehrich sported a unique haircut at the start of fall football camp: short on top with lines shaved in the sides and a mullet in the back. … While Roehrich has currently settled into a more traditional hairdo, his play on the gridiron still gets him noticed. The 5-foot-11, 212-pound Roehrich is tied for the team lead in tackles through three games with 26.”

Tips for College Students to Dodge ID Theft, Fraud

Posted on September 26, 2016

Two New Schemes Target Campuses, Former Students

Campuses nationwide are bustling again, as students have returned to begin—or resume—their collegiate studies. Though many college students are too busy to worry about fraud, they are among the most vulnerable to identity theft. Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) offers simple steps students can take to protect themselves from identity theft on campus, and warns of two new schemes targeting students and former students.

Studies have shown that college students are among the most-targeted group for identity theft and also the least likely to detect identity fraud themselves. The 2015 Identity Fraud Study by Javelin Strategy and Research revealed that 22 percent of college students were notified that they were a victim of identity fraud either by a debt collector or when they were denied credit, three times higher than average fraud victims.  Read the rest of this entry →
