Joshua Tetteh, a Mayville State University freshman from Orlando, Fla., is scheduled to appear on the ABC Good Morning America program Thursday morning, Sept. 29, somewhere between 7 and 9 a.m. ET. Tettah is a defensive back on the Comets football team and a graduate of Evans High School.
Mayville State University predominantly serves students from North Dakota, and enrollment figures show a 2% increase in the number of North Dakota residents enrolled for the Fall Semester of 2022. Mayville State’s final official headcount for the semester is at 1,123, a slight decrease from the Fall Semester of 2021.
One of the qualities valued most by Mayville State University students is a sense of community, not only locally on the campus, but in the towns that surround us. Almost to a person, when asked about what they like about being a student at Mayville State, students include their love for the community. Not only do our students experience personal service on campus and in the classroom, but they also experience it within the extended community.
Teamwork among members of the Mayville State campus and the community highlighted another successful Mayville State University Farmers Bowl. The annual celebration of the area’s agricultural way of life took place Saturday, Sept. 17. Coordinated by the MSU Foundation, working together with alumni and friends in the Mayville-Portland community and beyond, this was the 27th annual Farmers Bowl. Activities included a parade, a family fun festival that included live music by Kenny and the Classics and facepainting and bounce houses for the kids. The Comets hosted Presentation College in the Farmers Bowl football game, and the Farmers Bowl Auction was the grand finale for the day.
A full slate of activities is planned for Mayville State’s Homecoming 2022, October 7 and 8. The schedule includes opportunities to honor alumni and friends, socialize, watch some football and volleyball, and more.
We’re already well into September and have had many opportunities for campus and community fun with great festivities. The Sportsmen’s Raffle event was held Sept. 10 and the Farmers Bowl festivities are right behind on Sept. 17. I am among the many Mayville State alumni and friends who look forward to these events that provide time for socialization while supporting Mayville State.
