Volunteer at the MSUM Fargo Marathon Expo Booth

Posted on May 19, 2017

MSUM has been given an Expo Booth to promote MSUM to a huge audience for the Fargo Marathon. There are often long lines of people waiting to spin the MSUM prize wheel and gives us the opportunity to interact with those in line. Last year we had great interactions with Alumni, Current students,  future students and general public that loved seeing MSUM promoting.
