Strand is genuinely happy to be a faculty member at Mayville State University.  When asked what he enjoyed most about his job, he said it was the students and their growth.  “The interaction with students on a day-to-day basis and watching our students grow as individuals each year.  Helping students think about their future plans and then planning their course of study to accomplish their goals.”

“I hope that students take away the knowledge they need to be successful in their career choices," he said.  "But, I also want them to have seen and felt the power of personal interactions with peers and instructors – a quality that will certainly be helpful in whatever direction their career moves.”

To individuals who might be thinking about pursuing their degree, “choose a degree that you are truly interested in.  Enjoy the learning process!”
