Student success highlighted during fall open house
"6˝ Hints to Graduate from College," "What's my Major?" "Are You Ready to Write in College?" "Attend College or Not?" Interesting snippets, but what are they? They are sessions offered at Minot State University's Fall Open House, which will be Oct. 16-18. The open house provides a unique experience for high school students and their families while featuring MSU.
Arel Moodie, a youth motivational speaker, will keynote with "Your Starting Point for Student Success" Oct. 16 in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall, 1 p.m. An upbeat, engaging speaker with passion for postsecondary education and personal success, the Brooklyn, N.Y., entrepreneur encourages students to go to and through college. He will also address Minot High School Magic City Campus students earlier that day. For details regarding his presentation and background, go to www.arelmoodie.com/about. The Office of Enrollment Services, the Center for Teaching and Engaged Learning and the POWER Center are sponsoring Moodie's visit with the Minot student community.
"This is not just another fall open house for prospective students and families, these events and discussions meet the needs of prospective families as they make such important decisions as to where to send their children for college," said Kevin Harmon, assistant vice president for enrollment management. "Attend our Fall Open House Oct. 16-18 and hear Arel Moodie speak on student success. We have also planned a variety of experience-based activities."
