A new spring semester enrollment record has been set at Mayville State University. Final official enrollment numbers for the Spring 2020 semester show a 2.6% increase in total enrollment over the 2019 spring semester. Headcount enrollment for spring 2020 is at 1,151. This is in line with Mayville State’s University’s upward enrollment trends and records set over the last several years, not only in the spring semesters, but also in the fall and summer.
I am Comet Proud of the many Mayville State alumni and friends who teamed up to not only meet, but to exceed the Comet Football Scholarship Challenge! A few weeks ago, an anonymous donor issued a challenge to alumni and friends. The donor would match dollar-for-dollar all gifts made to Comet Football Scholarships for 2020, up to a total of $20,000. All of this needed to happen before the Jan. 31, 2020 deadline.
Just like a perfectly run high pressure clutch time two-minute drill, Comets fans have come through! When an anonymous Mayville State University donor issued a $20,000 Football Scholarship Challenge to all Mayville State alumni and friends, they stepped up in a big way. Together, they raised the $20,000 and more! All of this was done in just 20 days! These contributions from alumni and friends received through Jan. 31, 2020 are being matched dollar-for-dollar (up to $20,000) by the anonymous donor and will benefit football scholarships.
The Mayville State University Division of Business hosted its annual Business Activity Day on Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020. Nearly one hundred high school students from Mayport-CG, Hatton-Northwood, Central Valley, Larimore, and Fertile-Beltrami attended the event held on campus. Business Activity Day is a tradition that has been around for a long time. Participants competed in business-related events ranging from an entrepreneurial “Shark Tank” presentation to job interviews. Business students and DECA members volunteered to judge events and choose winners.
