It seems a little odd to look at the huge amount of snow outside and think that it really is spring and that our students are on spring break this week. It seems that the remnants of this last weekend’s weather event might be around for a while. It is nice, however, that the power of the sun works quickly at melting icy roads. Thank goodness!
Middle school students from Central Valley, Finley-Sharon, Hatton, Hope-Page, Larimore, May-Port CG, Northwood, and Thompson public schools attended a math meet hosted by the Mayville State mathematics department Tuesday, March 7, 2023. Students participated in individual and team competitions throughout the morning, had lunch, and wrapped the event up with an awards ceremony in the early afternoon.
Mayville State’s funding request for the renovation of Old Main, a number one priority for the North Dakota University System, was approved in the North Dakota House of Representatives and has moved to the Senate for their consideration. We are extremely grateful for the support received thus far and look forward to talking with our Senators regarding the importance of this project for our university and our state.
The Mayville State University Division of Education will host a science carnival for area students Tuesday, March 28, 2023 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the MSU Campus Center Luckasen Room.

The Watertown (S.D.) Civic Arena was bursting at the seams with Mayville State Comet Pride last weekend during the North Star Athletic Association (NSAA) women’s and men’s basketball championships. The teams participating had won their opening round games in various NSAA locations and qualified for the opportunity to play in the NSAA Final Four. I am elated and proud about the fact that Mayville State’s women’s AND men’s teams claimed championship games and are now headed to national tournament play!
Legendary Mayville State head baseball coach Scott Berry has announced his plan to retire at the end of the current baseball season. Coach Berry has enjoyed a stellar career, and I am happy for his opportunity to enjoy a new chapter in life and a well-deserved retirement filled with many blessings. Coach Berry has not only made his mark locally at his alma mater, but he has also kept Mayville State on our country’s collegiate baseball map for more than 40 years.
