Special events are planned during Homecoming in honor of NDSU alumnus Harry D. McGovern’s $1 million gift to support the NDSU Alumni Center.
A dedication and open house are scheduled Saturday, Oct. 6, at 8:30 a.m. at the Alumni Center, located at 1241 N. University Drive. Alumni, friends, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.
“On behalf of 80,000 alumni around the world, we are grateful for Mr. McGovern’s very generous gift for the NDSU Alumni Center,” said Wayne W. Schluchter, Alumni Association president. “The gift demonstrates respect, pride and loyalty toward the university. Mr. McGovern’s gift also enhances awareness about philanthropy, as his name will be seen by alumni, the community and current students each time they enter or pass the Harry D. McGovern Alumni Center.”
