If you were unable to attend, you can watch a video of the ceremony.
The program was held to honor the memory of Quentin N. Burdick, the long-serving U.S. senator from North Dakota, who was a strong advocate for agriculture, the state and NDSU. Speakers included NDSU President Dean L. Bresciani; Judge Myron H. Bright, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit; Birch Burdick, Senator Burdick’s son; Jan Mary Hill, Senator Burdick’s daughter; and Marc Wallman, NDSU interim vice president for information technology.
The Quentin Burdick Building, located at 1320 Albrecht Boulevard, houses NDSU’s main computer center as well as several departments and offices. Construction on the building began in April 1991, and it was dedicated in 1993. The State Board of Higher Education approved the name change in September 2013.
