Fall 2016

PiehlMarnie5.jpgAs we researched and wrote the stories for this issue of BSC Magazine a theme arose. Much of the success our students find happens beyond the book, outside the classroom. This isn’t new, it was true for me back in the day. The skills I developed at my college newspaper (the NDSU Spectrum) rounded out the lessons learned in class. Collaboration, deadlines and feedback from my colleagues all made me career and life ready. Inside you will see all the ways the life and extracurricular experiences of our students and alumni complement what they learn in the classroom. As President Skogen says in his essay, we are living in transformative times. Read on to discover how BSC students, faculty and alumni are evolving with these times.
