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.
