Inside the new-look Minot State Dome

By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - It’s a project that's been years in the making, but the Minot State dome is finally looking like what many at the school imagined.

Crews are putting the finishing touches on the new-look Minot State Dome.

Athletic Director Andy Carter says he can't wait for what's in store in the future.

“We'll have more amenities. We'll have maybe a team shop. We'll have maybe an interactive hall of fame--kind of history walkthrough. We'll have maybe a concession area on the south end. And maybe some new administrative offices as well,” he said.

The dome features updated seats, as well as access from the third to first floor straight from the court--something the dome was missing before.

One beavers coach says he is excited how an in-house and upgraded student athlete academic success center can improve his players on and off the court.

“The more time our student athletes can spend time in this facility, the better it is for our team because they have camaraderie, they have time to study together, they have time to learn the game and develop as a team,” said Minot State head men’s basketball coach Matt Murken.

Bridging the gap between student and athlete.

Beavers volleyball will play the first game in the renovated dome on Sept. 20th.
