MSU Celebrates Centennial

Posted: Updated:

It was a special day for Minot State University. Today marked the 100th anniversary of the first class being taught.

In order to celebrate the centennial, the University unveiled a beaver statue that was constructed by artist and sculptor Bennett Brien. The focus of the sculpture was to represent the hard work of the students and faculty. Not only did the artist construct the beaver because it is the mascot of the school, but also because it represents the strength and compassion that is taught at Minot State University.

"And I can't think of another sculpture, another image or another mascot that would be better suited to who we are, where we are and what we do as an institution," says David Fuller, Minot State University President.

It took more than six months to create the Beaver sculpture.
