We eagerly await the fall semester and the return of a campus filled with students, faculty, and staff. It will be wonderful to see those who have been away for the summer as well as to meet and get to know the newest members of the Mayville State family.
Farmers Bowl 2021 is planned for Saturday, Sept. 18. The annual festival, which is spearheaded by the Mayville State University Foundation, celebrates the proud agricultural heritage of the area. Each year, volunteers come together to plan and execute a day-long celebration that is anticipated and enjoyed by members of the Mayville State University family and community. The day centers around a Mayville State Comets home football game.
The Comet Athletic Club is sponsoring its 15th annual Sportsmen’s Raffle to raise academic scholarships for the student athletes of Mayville State University. The event is planned in conjunction with Farmers Bowl on Saturday evening, Sept. 18, 2021.
Our summer days are passing quickly by. Before we know it, the seasons will change and we’ll find ourselves in the midst of some special Mayville State fall events, including Farmers Bowl and homecoming. We treasure these opportunities to connect with alumni and friends and enjoy fun-filled and meaningful activities.
It is super-exciting to look to the upcoming fall semester with some normalcy as the backdrop. Last year at this time, we were working intensely to prepare for an academic year that would involve safely delivering in-person on-campus courses and services in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the concerns related to the pandemic continue to be a factor, the situation has eased tremendously with the roll-out of vaccines across the country.
Each year, we look forward to honoring exceptional alumni and friends during Mayville State’s homecoming festivities. Unfortunately, we’ve had to forego these special occasions for a couple of years. The misfortune of the last couple of years is building up to what we anticipate will be an extra-special celebration in 2021.
