Family and Youth Weekend

Sept. 12-14, MSU hosts its annual 2013 Family & Youth Weekend highlighting the campus, outstanding students, faculty and programs. Family Weekend is designed to bring families of MSU students together in a celebration of community and campus excellence at the University.

"The primary goal of Family & Youth Weekend is to build relationships between our students, their families and Minot State University. Students are our greatest treasure at Minot State and we want their brothers and sisters to feel comfortable on our campus and see it as their home someday, too," said Harmon, assistant vice president for Enrollment Management.

Harmon and his team of ambassadors have planned three days of fun and educational activities to acquaint families with the University environment. Events include campus tours, class sit-ins, a career and college fair, NOTSTOCK arts and music festival, a special tailgate party at Scheels All Sports (Sept. 13), the Run or Dye 5K walk or run, and tailgating and game day activities (Sept. 14) prior to MSU Beavers football against Augustana College (S.D.).
