Minot State returns to the mall after hiatus

Let the kids enjoy a coloring activity while learning about the brain. They can also have their faces painted. Adults can have their blood pressure checked and learn about health issues such as concussions and diabetes. Minot State University is returning to Dakota Square after a three-year hiatus.

The Minot area community is invited to attend “MSU at the Mall” April 8 in the JC Penney Court, from noon to 3 p.m. This interactive venue provides a great opportunity for Minot State to feature its academic programs, services and student organizations. With campus groups participating, “MSU at the Mall” will be an afternoon full of activities for all ages to learn more about the university.

“We are excited to be back at Dakota Square!” said Teresa Loftesnes, marketing director. “MSU at the Mall allows the community to visit one on one with Minot State students, faculty and staff to learn more about all the exciting things happening on campus.”

Featured events include demonstrations; face painting; blood-pressure, fasting blood sugar and cholesterol screenings, to name a few. Communication disorders students will provide information on developmental milestones and the importance of hearing protection, and show models of the larynx, ear, and articulators. The athletic training students will conduct testing for concussions and provide information on concussions, ankle sprains and heat illness.
