Power of 100 exceeds goal

Volunteer, mentor, serve and shape lives. That is exactly what dozens of groups accomplished through the Power of 100, MSU Centennial Service Challenge. These groups helped Minot State University surpass its goal of 100 service projects, with a grand total of 110! Visit http://www.minotstateu.edu/100/power_of_100_projects.shtml to view projects.

 

SMILE100 exceeds goal

To be part of the Power of 100 Centennial service challenge, the Department of Communication Disorders took on a big challenge by adopting SMILE100. Students, faculty and staff in the department set their sights on raising enough funds to pay for 100 cleft lip and palate surgeries for children in developing countries. This put them in the throes of raising $24,000. They exceeded their goal of 100, and to date have raised funds for more than 128 surgeries, a total of $30,936.

 

Honor Dance: accomplishments and reconnecting

On April 25-26, Minot State University’s Dome came alive with tradition, color and movement. Native American dancers and drum groups from throughout North Dakota and neighboring states and provinces competed in the 25th annual Native American Spring Honor Dance and Powwow Celebration. Approximately 1,200 people attended this year’s event. The event includes the acknowledgement of achievements, competitive dancing, vendor and information booths and food. The powwow is one of the largest student activities on campus.
