As we take time to pause and reflect on our many blessings this Thanksgiving, my thoughts go immediately to the many people who make Mayville State University the special place it is. At “The School of Personal Service,” people are the priority. Faculty and staff provide the highest level of service to students and that way of life is emulated by the students who are served.
Mayville State University alumni and friends and all community members are invited to share their thoughts and ideas related to the renovation of Mayville State Old Main.

Those interested may participate in person or online. To join the online meeting, find a link at https://fossarch.com/oldmain/publicinput/community.
The project to renovate Mayville State’s Old Main is underway! We are super-excited about the project, and equally grateful to the North Dakota Legislature for providing the $52 million in funding to make it possible. This is reason for all members of the Mayville State University Family to celebrate!
The Mayville State University Division of Education will host a Comet Today, Teacher Tomorrow kickoff event Monday, Nov. 20 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in room 118 of the Education Building at Mayville State.

Those who attend the games when Mayville State Women’s and Men’s Basketball host University of Minnesota-Morris on November 21 will have the opportunity to support a family within the Comets Family.

Miles’ sister Emma is a member of the Mayville State women’s basketball team. His sister, Olivia, plays softball for the Comets.
