MSU is in session on campus for Fall Semester of 2020. View COVID Restart updates.
As we take time to pause and reflect on our many blessings this Thanksgiving, I can’t help but think about the many who will be considering the gift that Mayville State University is in our lives. This special place has and continues to change lives, not only for current students, but for those who have earned degrees and gone on to make a difference in the lives of others.
Traditionally, the Mayville State University Collegiate DECA chapter members would have gone to the Luther Memorial Home on an evening before Halloween to decorate pumpkins with residents. This is an activity that the students and their friends at LMH have come to look forward to and enjoy.
It is good to be back to full on-campus course delivery and full campus operations on the Mayville State campus as of Monday, Nov. 16. You may recall that the results of an Oct. 27 mass testing event caused us to take a step back and re-evaluate out of an abundance of caution for the safety for our employees and students.
Mayville State University will host Dakota State in the Comets’ last football game of the fall Thursday, Nov. 19. Kickoff is 5 p.m. at Jerome Berg Field. Due to restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic a number of protocols have been put into place.
Like ANOTHER big-time clutch two-minute drill, Comets fans have come through! For a second time, Mayville State University alumni and friends have stepped up in a big way to exceed the challenge of an anonymous donor who agreed to match all gifts to football scholarships, up to a total of $20,000. The challenge was issued in mid-September and gifts needed to be committed by Nov. 7, 2020. Together, they raised the $20,000 and more! Combined with the matching funds, a total of $41,360 was raised for football scholarships.
Mayville State University will resume full on-campus operations and on-campus course delivery on Monday, Nov. 16. All faculty and staff who have recently been working remotely will return to work on campus. We will continue with this plan until the Thanksgiving break.
