May 2019


More than 1,400 students participated in NDSU’s spring commencement on May 11. Marisa Pacella and Sydney Dale were the class representatives chosen to speak during the ceremonies at the Fargodome. 

Dale, who earned her Bachelor of Science degrees in marketing and global business in just three years, said “I believe that by being kind and generous, having grit, being humble and having a strong work ethic and integrity are ways to leave a footprint. I also hope that my classmates recognize that being a Bison and representing NDSU is truly special.”
