College for Kids says “Thank You”

Posted on July 30, 2014

We had record-breaking enrollment this summer with 623 registrations! The MSUM campus was able to provide these students with a great experience, and for that I am grateful! Many of the students were excited about what they could take next summer and there were quite a few that made statements about how “cool” MSUM was and that they wanted to come here for college! Special thanks go out to Admissions, Athletics, Business Services, Grounds Crew, Marketing/Photography, Physical Plant, Office of Student Activities and last but not least the Maintenance staff.

Q: If you could listen to any type of music right now, what would you choose?
A: I was just listening to Irish music. I listen to pretty much everything, but if I had to pick one, I would probably pick Irish music – Scottish music, as well. I just love the tones in the music, and I really enjoy the bagpipes. I go to the Irish fair every year in Minneapolis and listen to Irish music, and I’ve gone to some concerts when they come to town. I have no Irish heritage at all, but I love it. Read the rest of this entry →
