Featuring: Multi-screen game room, theater screen, expansive community kitchen, double-sided fireplace lounge, and fully equipped rec room. A centralized coin-less laundry room is located on the main floor, and includes a study/social space, vending area, folding tables and more.

Catherine Cater

Professor emeritus of English

Catherine Cater was a much-beloved and inspiring mentor and teacher to generations of NDSU students. Cater was widely known for her enthusiasm, curiosity, compassion and gentle humor; and she lived her life with a grace few can match. 

She exuded an inner strength and displayed an incredible sense of humor and joy of life, and had a wonderful way of making you feel like a better person for being around her.
