Moorhead Campus Open House Draws Big Crowd

Volunteers from the Moorhead Police Department did fingerprinting for kids at the open house.

Minnesota School of Business-Moorhead recently held its annual ‘Open House’ on campus, attracting nearly 300 people. The evening included burgers and hot dogs and a variety of activities for children.

There were face painters, a caricature artist, balloon artist, and even a photo booth. Many program chairs also held educational activities for children as well. Paralegal program chair Stacy Tronson held a Snow White ‘mock trial’, the massage department held a kiddie yoga class, and the medical assisting program did height and weight for all attendees.

“Our family had such a great time,” said Business Program Advisory Committee member Kevin Spaulding. “Thanks so much for inviting us out.”

The admissions team also organized a ‘Touch-a-Truck’ event in conjunction with the open house. The group brought together a fun assortment of vehicles for children to explore including a snow plow, grader, race car, police vehicle, combine, and other construction equipment from RDO Equipment.

All of the activities were a big hit with families and many of them learned more about the campus, its programs, and educational opportunities.

“This is the best open house we have ever had,” said Campus Director Erik Engberg. “We are glad so many people came in to check out our campus.”

Morning show radio personality Jan Alexander from BOB 95 FM was on hand to promote the event as well.

The Moorhead campus would like to thank all of the businesses and individuals who played a role in the open house and made it a rousing success.
