The NDSCS Football team will join the Minnesota College Athletic Conference (MCAC) beginning in the fall of 2014.
NDSCS has been a member of the Midwest Football Conference since 2005, but decided to make a change after a number of teams announced they were departing from the MCAC.
Joining the MCAC will allow the NDSCS football tradition to continue and will bring value to the College and Wildcat fans alike, while also increasing competition with quality teams located closer to the Wahpeton community.
In addition to this new conference affiliation, the NDSCS football stadium is currently undergoing a $1.35 million renovation to its locker rooms, concession stand and store. The renovation will be complete just in time to kick-off the 2014 football season.
“We are very committed to our tradition and our history of football at NDSCS, and we are excited to showcase our new conference and new facilities in the fall of 2014,” said NDSCS Athletic Director Stu Engen.
NDSCS was once again designated a Military Friendly School® by Victory Media this fall. The Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20% of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
NDSCS offers a variety of online courses and programs to provide an educational opportunity to those who are placebound or timebound and cannot attend traditional classes.
These courses and programs provide an opportunity for current and former members of the military to enhance their education or seek new skills.
NDSCS also has a membership with the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium and the SOC Degree Network System.
Every service member has different needs and steps to take as a student. And NDSCS is committed to assisting all students.

Homecoming Week at NDSCS kicked-off to a great start this week, and although the weather has cooled, spirits are still high. Students enjoyed special dress-up days, a hypnotist, tie dying, Coronation, a pep rally and much more.
The Volleyball team was victorious on Tuesday night, beating out Jamestown College JV, 3-0.

Below is a general snapshot of what will be taking place next weekend:
With the start of classes at NDSCS just around the corner (we know, the summer has flown by!), now is the time for your student to start thinking about getting the textbooks they will need for their classes.
While your son or daughter can always buy their books at the NDSCS Bookstore, the Bookstore also offers the option to rent textbooks.
Renting books is a great way for your student to save hundreds of dollars throughout their two or three year career at NDSCS. Often, students can save up to 55% off of new textbook prices.
All rented books may be written in, highlighted and also returned or exchanged. Pay the rental fee with Wildcat Bucks, credit card, check or cash.
Your student can either stop in at the NDSCS Bookstore to see which books they can rent, or visit the Bookstore’s website and do a quick search from there.
Enjoy the next few weeks—they’ll go fast. We can’t wait to welcome your son or daughter to NDSCS. They’ve made a great choice!
