  • Fall Preview Day

Enrollment Services

Minot State University invites prospective students and their families to “test drive” the university at Fall Preview Day on Nov. 22.  This event is designed to educate prospective students and their families about MSU’s numerous programs. Participants will attend four presentations covering topics such as potential career fields, study abroad opportunities, foreign language programs and a campus tour.

Presentations at Fall Preview Day are unique in that they will be similar to TED talks, which are short, up-tempo, high-energy and thought-provoking presentations given by students, faculty, staff and alumni.

“When people think back to their high school or university experiences, they generally don’t think about subject content or buildings,” said Kevin Harmon, assistant vice president for enrollment management. “They think about teachers, professors or staff members who made an impact on their lives. This event is designed to bring together the most important component of any school, the students, and introduce them to our people who make a difference every day.”

The registration form is at the bottom of this page.
