Dragons in the News

Posted on October 03, 2016

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

Innovative Program Provides Valuable Microsoft Dynamics CRM Experience, Making Students Competitive in the Job Market, Microsoft: “By connecting three pinnacles of success—industry, education, and application—the faculty and administration at Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) are preparing their students by teaching them the essential skills and strategies of Customer Relationship Management (CRM).”

14th Annual Fargo Fantastic Film Festival Comes to a Close, KVRR: “‘Minnesota State University Moorhead is the only school in the region that has a four year film degree program. Actually Minneapolis doesn’t even have one. So between Chicago and Seattle MSUM is the place to go for film…’ says Chairman of the Fargo Fantastic Film Festival Tony Tilton.”

MSUM Making Effort to Clean Up Cigarette Butts, KVRR: “Students at MSUM are trying to get people to stop throwing their cigarette butts on the ground. The week-long campaign began on Monday.”

MSUM students Trash the Ash, Valley News Live: “A week long campaign to Trash the Ash began at MSUM on Monday. Students on campus who are Wellness Educators will devote the week to picking up cigarette butts around campus.”

MSUM student travels the world as professional video gamer, InForum: “Brandon Qual is fighting a cold he picked up on a trip to Toronto where he played in a video game tournament. It’s an occupational hazard. Stress, fatigue and jet lag go along with his job. Qual is a professional gamer, one of the world’s top contestants in StarCraft. He commutes from here to compete in tournaments around the world.”

Social media to play a huge role in Presidential Debate Monday night, WDAY: “Some think it’ll simply just be for entertainment, rather than a way to sway a vote. ‘I do not see most people following seriously to make judgments. But they’ll pay attention. Like who gets the most re-tweets, or what phrase was retweeted the most, or what becomes the best ‘hashtag,’ said Denise Gorsline, MSUM Communications Professor.”

WDAY and WDAZ Nominated for 8 Emmy Awards, WDAY/WDAZ: “We here at WDAY and WDAZ are giving ourselves a pat on the back this morning. We are up for 8 Upper Midwest Regional Emmys. The nominees were announced Friday morning.” Congratulations to our alumni nominated for awards: Dana Mogck ’83 Kevin Wallevand ’84, Andrew Nelson ’12 and Jordan Schroeer ’15.
