As we look forward to gathering with friends and family this holiday season, we reflect on the most wonderful gift we’ve received from our larger University of North Dakota family. It’s the hard work and dedication from so many that makes this campus and our students thrive. They truly are leaders in action. For this we feel blessed and forever grateful.
