NDSU is reaching out to young people across the region through a kid-focused magazine. The publication’s January issue is dedicated to kids, and it’s designed to help them think about their futures.
In cooperation with NDSU Extension, the NDSU Kids issue of Bison Illustrated will be distributed with nutrition education in elementary school classrooms and/or community-based youth groups in every county in North Dakota.
An advertisement from the university on pages four and five asks, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
NDSU offers more than 100 degree options and many opportunities, no matter what the child wants for a career. The ad lists a few ideas – bridge builder, house designer, nurse, writer, teacher, scientist and inventor.
The issue includes nutrition information, safety tips, recipes and stories featuring NDSU student-athletes describing the traits necessary to become a Bison: positivity, dedication, passion, hard work and grit. There also are fun games, like a crossword puzzle, word search and trivia.
As a student-focused, land grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
