My degree at BSC was very hands on. It required handling cameras, darkroom developing, airbrushing, and a lot of computer work. I learned teamwork and developed a desire to lead. The instructors, fellow students and athletes, coaches, lunch staff, housing staff; they all felt like family. I made relationships with fellow students that have continued through the years, and I now sit with them on boards or other aspects of business. -Alex Lund, Co-Founder and Visionary at Bismarck Sign Co., Commercial Art / Graphic Design
