Here's why alumni and friends are thankful for Mayville State!
For the opportunities it brings to the community.
I am thankful that MSC offered me an education at a price I could afford. It provided a foundation upon which my entire professional life has been built. Thank you!
For the amazing personal service I received as a student athlete at MSU! From the staff, to the faculty and also the Coaches... they gave me all that I needed to be successful in life. And passed on many life long skills that help pave my way. Love MSU!!! Go Comets
We had an amazing experience at Mayville State and feel that our education prepared us for our careers and later graduate degrees. We made lifelong friends who have been a treasured gift. Once a Comet, always a Comet. But, perhaps our best memory is the wonderful professors who set us up on a blind date. Hand-picking your spouse really accentuates the personal in the School of Personal Service.
