MINOT, N.D. – Mykal Drosdal is a self-described people person.

The broadcasting and professional communication graduate would like to eventually work in public relations, perhaps be a communications professor, and he’s even considering a career in radio broadcasting.

“Taking classes in the communications department I got a glimpse at what it’s like to work in television, radio, and public relations,” Drosdal said. “There were a lot of wonderful first-time experiences for me at Minot State.”

One of Drosdal’s favorite moments at Minot State was working on the KMSU auction, an annual fundraising event for the broadcast and professional communications department that is completely student-run.

“It’s stressful leading up to the auction, but I love having stuff to do,” Drosdal said of working on the auction two years in a row. “It’s super chaotic, but it definitely works.”

Drosdal also worked as a resident assistant with the housing staff his junior year, and a resident housing director this year.

“It was a great experience and I met so many amazing people including my best friend through it,” Drosdal said.

This summer Drosdal will return to his hometown of New Town to do a public relations internship with the Mandan Hidatsa Arikara Tribal Nation. After that, he will continue his education as a graduate student at North Dakota State University.

“I’m looking forward to heading to Fargo, but I will really miss the environment at Minot State,” Drosdal said, “and of course, the people.”
