WSC Forms President’s Advisory Council

In response to increasing community involvement at the College, Williston State College created a committee to help advise on WSC’s annual goals. WSC’s President Advisory Council (PAC) consists of prominent alumni, community leaders, and friends of higher education and the College. 

Terry Olson, Executive Director for the WSC Foundation, and Dr. Raymond Nadolny, President of WSC, led the inaugural meeting April 14, 2016. The council discussed WSC’s accomplishments as well as areas for improvement to help shape the College’s annual goals.


Pump Jack Added To WSC Campus

The retired pump behind the Western Star Building now has a second life as an ornamental piece on campus thanks to Petroleum Instructor Alberto Bellina’s TECH 299 class.

Donated by Whiting Oil & Gas Corporation in the fall semester of 2014 for educational use, six sophomore petroleum students spent the the spring semester in teams researching companies to assemble the sucker rod pumping unit, bid out jobs, and solicit donations.


Business Incubator Opens on WSC Campus

Located in the Crighton Building on Williston State College’s campus and led by WSC’s Continuing Education Division, Williston’s first Business Incubator is now taking applications. 

Williston’s Business Incubator provides access to professional workspace twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. High speed Internet, phone services, a conference room, on-site security, and a shared receptionist all set Williston’s Business Incubator apart from other rentals in the Williston area.

Six furnished offices, ranging from 96 to 234 square feet, and two classrooms are available for rent.
