NDSCS graduates are in high demand – a fact that was reinforced through the College’s most recent Graduate Placement Report, which identified that the College’s placement rate has risen to 99%. Often, those graduates were hired prior to graduation, and may have had their education sponsored by their employer. Seeking to fill workforce needs, and to encourage employees to return to their hometowns, many businesses and local economic development organizations have turned to student sponsorship programs.
The NDSCS Alumni Foundation is one of the participating charities for Giving Hearts Day, a 24-hour giving event for charities across North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota that will take place on Thursday, February 14, 2019. All donations the NDSCS Alumni Foundation receives through Giving Hearts Day will support the NDSCS Nursing department.
The NDSCS Alumni Foundation has received a donation of $30,000 from the Shorma Family to support the NDSCS Athletics Department. The free weight gym in the Clair T. Blikre Activities Center has been renamed the Shorma Family Gym in recognition of this donation.
