Happenings at The School of Graduate Studies at the University of North Dakota

A Visit to Morris

with one comment

It has been a year since The Graduate School visited with students at the University of Morris, Minnesota. I have the privilege of attending the fair this year and am always enthused by the interest and the confidence of the students here. UMM is a small liberal arts college with a big emphasis on undergraduate research. And as I wandered around the Student Center this morning I was impressed with the student artwork that adorns the public spaces.

So far today, I have had numerous requests for information on our programs in Biology, Psychology, Applied Economics and Physics as well as questions about the Schools of Law and Medicine. There has been a steady flow of traffic through the Alumni Room and it seems clear that most students are certain about what they’d like to pursue when they arrive. Some have been very surprised by the broad range of offerings at UND, walking away with information they’d not expected.

One of my favorite sites to see in Morris is their enormous wind maker that sits across the street from the Cougars playing fields. It’s an imposing sight for a town of just a few thousand! (Susan Caraher)

  1. yes, the turbine is a unique site in our prairie land community. One must visit the bike trails around it to view the beautiful scenery along it!
