The Nice Center at NDSU in partnership with the new NDSU School of Design, Architecture and Art has announced its first cohort of Nice + SoDAA Student Fellows. During March, the seven students from all three departments within the School will learn to solve real-world problems by working on projects that impact their community.
“Each of the fellows is incredibly knowledgeable and talented,” said Scott Meyer, Ozbun Executive Director of Entrepreneurship. “The Nice Center is excited to work with them and provide the resources they need to flourish as artists and architects. A better world is built by entrepreneurs, and the Nice Center intends on facilitating real-world action to supplement the knowledge base NDSU’s bright students have.”
"We are thrilled with our new partnerships with the Nice Center, which includes this new fellowship. This program is indicative to our approach as a school to connect students across disciplines and foster an entrepreneurial culture as a complement to their major focus. This will expand opportunities for students to move their design and creative expertise into the world," said Michael Strand, director of the School of Design Architecture and Art.
The fellows are:
• Taylor Hemmesch, a senior architecture major from Minnetonka, Minnesota
• Katie Kent, a third-year student studying architecture, business administration and entrepreneurship who is from Alexandria, Minnesota
• Megan Tichy, a mixed media artist from Tower City, North Dakota
• Madeline Hursey, an architecture major from Flandreau, South Dakota
• Hunter Seminole, a student seeking his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Osgood, North Dakota
• Tucker Schoenfish, a third-year architecture student from Fargo
• Colin Ceason, a landscape architecture major from Farmington, Minnesota
The program allows the fellows to apply their knowledge, network with professionals in their chosen field and to take action. They will participate in weekly meetings and a public showcase.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
