Darren Mueller is in his 12th season as the North Dakota State University head softball coach. He has a record of 389-222 in 11 seasons. Mueller recorded his 350th career win vs. Southern Utah (5-13-11) at The Summit League Softball tournament. Mueller led North Dakota State to its fourth straight Summit League tournament championship in 2012. The Bison advanced to the NCAA Division I Tucson Regional before bowing out to eight-time national champion Arizona and Notre Dame. NDSU defeated highly-touted and nationally-ranked Hawai'i at the regional. The 2009 season proved to be an eventful one. In its first year of Division I postseason eligibility, Mueller directed North Dakota State to The Summit League tournament championship, the NCAA Division I Norman Region championship and berth in the NCAA Division I Super Regional played against Arizona State in Tempe. “I believe we’ll keep the program moving forward,” said Mueller. The NDSU coaching staff received the 2009 NFCA (National Fastpitch Coaches Association) Division I Midwest Region Co-Coaching Staff of the Year award; 2002 and 2003 NFCA Division II North Central Region Coaching Staff of the Year award; 2012 and 2008 Summit League Coaching of the Year; 2007 and 2006 Division I Independent Coaching Staff of the Year, and the 2002 North Central Conference Co-Coaching Staff of the Year. “I���m looking forward to the challenge and I think our team is ready to go out on the field and see what happens. We have a lot of talent.” Mueller is in his 19th year with the NDSU softball program. For seven seasons alongside Mitch Hanson, Mueller was responsible for coordinating recruiting and working with the hitters and catchers. The Bison were among the NCAA hitting leaders over a six-year period from 1998-2003 and connected for a school record .357 batting average in 1998. NDSU also hit for power, clubbing a school-record 58 home runs in 2003. “I like working with the players and seeing them get better, knowing they’re learning something and having fun doing it,” said Mueller. The 12th coach in the program’s 38-year history, Mueller was part of a coaching staff that guided the Bison to a seven-year record of 339-125 and six straight winning seasons. The 2000 NCAA national championship team posted a 68-10 ledger to set a Division II record for most wins in a season. North Dakota State made five straight NCAA tournament appearances from 1998 to 2003, including back-to-back national tourney trips in 1999 and 2000 and again in 2002 and 2003. Mueller, assistant Mike McLeod and Hanson were selected the 2000 Speedline Division II National Coaching Staff of the Year. The trio was also named the 1999 and 2000 Speedline Division II North Central Regional Coaching Staff of the Year by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. Mueller knows the importance of team chemistry and staying positive. He set the tone his first day on the new job. “I just told the players that I wanted them to learn something new every day. Don’t worry about the wins and the losses, they will come,” said Mueller. “The challenge is learning something new every day because that’s

what is going to make you a better player. You can’t worry about failure because everybody is going to fail at one point or another. Learn from your mistakes and move on.” Mueller will also challenge the student-athletes to excel in the classroom. Former players, Melissa Chmielewski, Sarah Schmitz, Michelle Wiest and Aimee Enzler were named CoSIDA Academic All-Americans. Since 1995, 29 Bison players have earned NFCA Academic Scholar-Athlete awards (3.50 grade-point average or higher). “One of the first things we talk about is striving for a high grade-point average. I think that’s a goal of any team who wants to succeed, to make sure they first achieve success in the classroom,” said Mueller. “When you come to NDSU, you’re coming here to become a part of a great academic and athletic tradition.” Mueller has authored many articles for the NFCA and produced four videos on hitting. He has coached internationally in Holland and Australia with USA all-star teams that have competed against the Dutch National and numerous all-star teams. Mueller is a Fargo native. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from NDSU in 1994 and master’s degree in 2006.

BISON SEASON PREVIEW

2013 BISON SOFTBALL

To say it's business as usual for theNorth Dakota State University softball team in 2013 might be a little misleading. The NDSU roster features nine freshmen, the largest incoming first-year group since 1995 when 11 freshman dotted the roster. Add to that four sophomores, a pair of juniors and one senior, and you have the second youngest roster in NCAA Division I softball this season. And what might be surprising is that head coach Darren Mueller and co-head coach Jamie Trachsel are really looking forward to working with this team, despite the question marks. Four-year starter Brea Konz moves into an assistant coach position on the staff joining director of operations and former pitcher Andi Padilla. "There is a lot of talent with this group of freshmen, but there is a huge difference between playing in high school to the intensity and the focus needed to play at this level," said Mueller. The Bison were 38-22 overall and 18-6 in the Summit League in 2012. Mueller and Trachsel know a little about the intensity and focus needed. They've led North Dakota State to four straight Summit League tournament championships that equal four NCAA

North Dakota State pitcher Krista Menke looks to build on the success achieved in 2013. Menke was 25-13 with a 2.36 ERA.

North Dakota State pitcher Whitney Johnson is the lone senior on the Bison 16-player roster this season. Johnson was 13-9 last season with a 2.21 earned run average. She is a three-time all-Summit League performer and two-time tournament MVP. Johnson could break several school career records in 2013.

tournaments, the 2009 NCAA Norman Regional title and 2009 NCAA Super Regional regional appearance. However, the Summit League continues to get better. A veteran IPFW team is looking to unseat the Bison and the addition of Nebraska-Omaha, a perenially tough Division II program with a national championship in its history, provide solid competition. "We have to make the younger players realize to be the best, you have to play the best. Playing the best competition will make us better and get us ready to play in the league," said Mueller. The Bison are scheduled to open Summit League play at Omaha on March 15-16. And to drive home the point, NDSU will play the defending national champion for the fifth straight season. The Bison play Alabama during the opening weekend at Northern Iowa's Ramada Inn UNI-Dome Classic on Feb. 8-10. There are seven teams on the schedule that advanced to the 2012 NCAA tournament, including road trips/games against the Tide, LSU, Georgia, North Carolina, Long Beach State and UCLA. North Dakota State will look at pitchers, senior Whitney Johnson and sophomore Krista Menke, to keep things at an even keel. Freshman Tabby Bayers (Maple-

wood, Minn.) joins the staff. Johnson, a 5-foot-11 righthander from Lake Crystal, Minn. has a chance to rewrite the the school record books in several cateories this season. She has been an all-league performer and twotime Summit League tournament MVP her first three seasons. Johnson was 13-9 with a 2.21 ERA last year including her first career no-hitter against UMKC. She finished with 175 strikeouts in 149 innings pitched. Menke, a 5-foot-11 righthander, looks to continue the success experienced as a freshman, earning National Fastpich Coaches Association (NFCA) all-Midwest Region second team, and Summit League Freshman and Pitcher of the Year honors. She posted a 25-13 record with a 2.36 ERA including 210 strikeouts in 254.2 innings pitched. Menke also had a no-hitter against Liberty. Behind the plate, 5-2 junior Jenina Ortega (San Jose, Calif.) returns after earning Summit League all-tourney honors. She hit .246 with two home runs and 14 RBI after missing 15 games due to injury. Defensively, Ortega threw out 17 baserunners attempt to steal. Ortega will be joined by 5-7 freshman Alyssa Reina (Auburn, Calif.) at catcher. North Dakota State does return a pair


BISON SEASON PREVIEW of players to the infield. Junior Brandi Enriquez (Norwalk, Calif.) has started 106 games at second and shortstop during her first two seasons, but could move to first base this spring. An all-tournament pick, Enriquez nearly tripled her batting average to .217 as a sophomore last year. Hard-hitting sophomore Amanda Grable (Santee, Calif.) earned all-league honors at catcher filling in for Ortega during most of the Summit League schedule and also made starts at first and third base. Grable could find a home at third after hitting .269 with nine home runs and 29 RBI in starting all 60 games in 2012. Four freshman could lineup at different infield positions this spring. The speedy 4-foot-11 Cheyenne Garcia (Vista, Calif.) will see action at second and third base. Steady newcomer Logan Moreland (Woodland, Calif.) is penciled in at shortstop, while Katie Soukup (Omaha, Neb.) will see action at second and Jackie Stifter (Winsted, Minn.) at first base. In the outfield, 5-8 sophomore Alex Sobrero (Paradise, Calif.) comes back with a great deal of experience, starting 56 of 60 games played. Sobrero hit .231 with one home run, 21 RBI and nine stolen bases. Another sophomore, 5-4 Presley Glaser (Blair, Neb.) looks to build on her freshman year. Glaser played in 43 games,

scoring 12 runs and stealing 7 of 8 bases. Look for a trio of freshmen to figure into the scheme of things in the outfield for North Dakota State. Maritza Lopez-Portillo (San Diego, Calif.), Jenna Isbel (Fontana, Calif.) and Sam Peterson (Omaha, Neb.). Lopez-Portillo is expected to add some pop to the lineup, while

EXTRA INNINGS: North Dakota State Strong in Going the Distance

10

North Dakota State University softball is no stranger to extra innings. The Bison compiled a 3-3 record in six extra-inning games last season including 12-inning loss to UMKC in a Summit League game on April 22. Krista Menke was the pitcher of record against UMKC. Menke was 2-3 in extra-inning games last season. The 12-inning affair against the Kangaroos matched the longest game in NDSU history -- set three times previously. The Bison defeated Colorado State 3-2 at Fort Collins in 2006. In the 1999 season opener, the Bison beat Southern Indiana 3-2 in 12 frames, while Bemidji State posted a 4-3 win over North Dakota State in 1983. Since the 1983 season, North Dakota State has compiled a 49-46 record in extrainning games. There have been only four seasons when the Bison weren't involved in an extended game -- the last year was 1994. NDSU posted a 9-2 record in extra-inning games during the 2002 season in Darren Mueller's first year as head coach. The 11 extra-inning games played in 2002 was a school single-season record. The Bison had four extra-inning games in the 2002 North Central Conference tournament including a 2-1 win over Augustana in 11 innings in the league championship game. North Dakota State lost to Barry 3-1 in 10 innings at the NCAA national tournament. North Dakota State went 4-0 in extra

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE “Ascending” and “improving” are common adjectives used in media coverage of The Summit League as it continues its renaissance. Consisting of nine member institutions with over 3,000 student-athletes competing in 19 championship sports, The Summit League has enjoyed unprecedented success and development in recent history. Since rebranding as The Summit League in 2007, the league has produced 54 All-Americans, 37 Capital One Academic All-America® selections and seven NCAA championships. In the past seven seasons, Summit League teams have achieved final national rankings in six different sports, won NCAA regional championships in two sports and advanced in three additional NCAA team championship tournaments. That level of success carries into both the classroom and athletic competition. Originally formed in 1982 as the Association of Mid-Continent Universities and later known as the Mid-Continent Conference, The Summit League is in its sixth year of rebranding that followed its 25th anniversary and coincided with the Summit Plan, a strategic plan that places a renewed emphasis on improving the academic and athletic performances of all league student-athletes. The Summit League has a combined enrollment of more than 144,000 at nine universities: IPFW (Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne), IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis), UMKC (University of Missouri-Kansas City), the University of Nebraska Omaha, North Dakota State University, Oakland University, University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University, and Western Illinois University. The league has two associate members with Eastern Illinois University competing in swimming and diving and Oral Roberts University competing in men’s soccer. These member institutions pride themselves on providing quality athletic, academic and social experiences for their student-athletes. The Summit League sponsors 19 championship sports, which include: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. The league champion receives automatic bids to the NCAA tournament in all applicable sports. Since its inception in 1982, The Summit League has had several transcendent moments on the national stage. In 1986, Cleveland State upset thirdseeded Indiana in the first round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament on its way to the Sweet 16. Valparaiso captured the nation’s attention when Bryce

Drew hit “the shot” to defeat No. 4 seed Mississippi in an NCAA first-round game and spark its 1998 Sweet 16 run. More recently, the Oral Roberts baseball program finished the 2004 campaign nationally ranked and became the first Summit League school to reach the NCAA Super Regionals in 2006. Three years later, North Dakota State became the league’s first softball team to win an NCAA regional and advance to the Super Regional round. The league has produced nine NCAA champions, four Olympic medalists, and several All-Americans in the sports of track and field, swimming and diving, and cross country. Numerous professionals and several draft choices have come directly from The Summit League, including three Major League Baseball first-round picks, a pair of NBA first-rounders and one WNBA selection. Former Summit Leaguers Kevin Duckworth (NBA) and Kevin Seitzer (MLB) each were two-time all-stars during their professional careers. Recent and historical success coupled with an increased growth among its membership base gives The Summit League a promising future on the landscape of college athletics.

North Dakota State University shortstop Nikki Flynn-Gregg has plenty of individual NCAA records, but now she has a national championship trophy to go with it. "This is definitely the cake," said a wide-smiling FlynnGregg after NDSU defeated Kennesaw State 3-1 to win the 2000 NCAA Division II Softball Championship on Sunday before a crowd of 247 at South Commons Stadium. "The rest I look at as frosting on the cake." Flynn-Gregg will be handing out plenty of cake as the Bison softball program claimed their first national title in three NCAA tournament appearances. "The big key for us was to go out and have fun, and play relaxed. These kids know how to play softball," said NDSU head coach Mitch Hanson, who took over a program that went 4-32 in 1995. "This is a very special moment. We've been adding together the pieces over the past six years. You have to give credit to the kids, you have to give credit to Darren Mueller, who works with out hitters, and Mike (McLeod), who works with our pitchers. This is real family deal." North Dakota State, which went 5-0 over the four-day tourney, closed the

deal like it started -- aggressive and opportunistic. This time the opportunity presented itself on defense when freshman centerfielder Jess Christensen chased down Christine Hochdorfer's blast to left center before hitting the portable fence for the third out in the first inning. Hochdorfer hit a tape-measure shot in Friday's loss to NDSU. "I was determined to get to the ball. I knew it was going to be a close game. I had to do whatever it took to get to the ball," said Christensen, who led the Bison with two singles. The catch deflated the Owls (56-8), who won back to back NCAA titles in 1995-96. "It was a game of inches. The girl (Christensen) made a great play to keep (Christine) Hochdorfer's home run in the ballpark," said KSU head coach Scott Whitlock. "I want to congratulate North Dakota State. They have a class program. We lost to a deserving champion. I am proud of my club. We have too much to be proud for." The Bison used the emotional lift from Christensen's catch in the bottom of the frame, taking advantage of two Kennesaw State errors and Michelle Wiest's two-run double to left center. It was the fifth straight game NDSU

NCAA Division II Softball held its first championship in 1981 and celebrated its 25th Anniversary at the 2006 championships. To commemorate this milestone a 25th Anniversary Team consisting of 10 student-athletes and one coach were named and former North Dakota State All-American pitcher Julie Fromm was on the list. Fromm helped to lead North Dakota State to the 2000 NCAA Division II national championship and was the winning pitcher in the Bison 3-1 win over Kennesaw State in the title game. She compiled a 45-6 record in 2000. Fromm earned NFCA (National Fastpitch Coaches Association) All-America first team honors in 2000, and was second team in 1999 and 2001. Fromm, who played at NDSU from 1999-01, compiled a 10316 career record with 49 shutouts, six saves and a 1.14 earned run average. She struck out 779 batters in 794.1 innings pitched. The Bison compiled a 174-28 record during her career. An NCAA expert panel selected the 25th Anniversary Team in softball. The final team was selected from 35 student-athletes and four head coaches. The panel used historical data and results from online public voting at www.ncaasports.com to make its decision. The NCAA sponsors 44 women's championships in 20 sports providing more than 150,000 women with an opportunity to compete for national titles each year.

NDSU AT A GLANCE

2013 BISON SOFTBALL

North Dakota State University is a shining example of a successful studentfocused, land-grant, research institution. With 80,000 living alumni, NDSU commands a powerful niche in higher education and the rest of the nation is noticing its accomplishments. The Carnegie Commission on Higher Education named NDSU to the elite “Research University/Very High Research” category, which represents the 108 most successful private and public universities in the United States. The classification is convincing recognition of NDSU’s position as a national research institution. “We have a strong sense of community and campus pride at NDSU. We are dedicated to the land-grant mission of quality education, leading research and outstanding service,” said President Dean L. Bresciani. “NDSU clearly makes a difference in the lives of students and the vitality of our community, state, region and nation.” Success comes from all sectors of this energized, vibrant university. NDSU enrolled 14,399 students during the fall 2011 semester in undergraduate and graduate programs, including about 2,150 graduate and professional students.

45

More than 1,200 international students from 80 countries attend classes. NDSU’s student-to-faculty ratio stands at 18:1. NDSU continues to excel in areas of innovative and technology-driven research, with more than $110 million in annual research expenditures. NDSU is listed in the top 40 research universities without a medical school in the United States, based on research expenditures reported to the National Science Foundation. NDSU consistently ranks in the top 100 research universities in the country in the areas of physical sciences, chemistry, social sciences and agricultural sciences. Bresciani, who was named NDSU’s 14th president on May 24, 2010, by the State Board of Higher Education, says a rare “window of opportunity” exists in North Dakota, and he has challenged the campus community to imagine how NDSU can help shape the state during the next century.


NDSU AT A GLANCE NDSU: yesterday and today

The state’s first land grant university was established as North Dakota Agricultural College on March 8, 1890, and organized for educational work on Oct. 15, 1890. President Horace E. Stockbridge and a five-member faculty welcomed the first class of 30 students as they took a winter agricultural course. Old Main, the campus’ landmark building, was completed in 1892. Renamed in 1960 as North Dakota State University of Agriculture and Applied Science, the institution educates students for a multitude of career opportunities. The university is comprised of the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources; College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; College of Business; College of Engineering and Architecture; College of Human Development and Education; College of Pharmacy, Nursing, and Allied Sciences; College of Science and Mathematics; College of University Studies; and College of Graduate and Interdisciplinary Studies. NDSU’s outstanding academic departments offer 102 bachelor degree programs, 67 master’s degree programs, 45 doctoral programs, an educational specialist degree and nine graduate certificate programs. Students work closely with NDSU’s chemists, engineers, architects, musicians, pharmacists, writers and other respected faculty who frequently are on the leading edge of research in their chosen areas. During fall 2010, NDSU had 720 ranked faculty and lecturers, program administrators and coaches, along with 180 part-time academic staff and 827 graduate assistants and fellows, according to the Office of Institutional Research and Analysis. The NDSU campus in Fargo consists of 119 buildings on approximately 42 square blocks or 258 acres. The university also has state-of-the-art facilities in downtown Fargo. In all, NDSU is located on 18,746 acres of North Dakota land, which includes the main Agricultural Experiment Station at Fargo. There are 53 local Extension offices and eight research Extension centers across the state. Dedicated to outreach efforts, the NDSU Extension Service conducts a rigorous education program in agriculture, human development, nutrition and youth and community development through its county, area and state staff. The NDSU Extension Service had more than 500,000 face-to-face contacts across the state during this past fiscal year, including 21,000 youth who participated in 4-H Club activities, day camp and after school programs. Members of NCAA Division I, the talented Bison athletic teams have enjoyed a long tradition of excellence. The student-athletes compete in first-class facilities – the Fargodome, Newman Outdoor Field, Ellig Sports Complex and Bison Sports Arena.

An energetic student body

The NDSU student body is a talented, dedicated and enthusiastic blend of international and ethnic backgrounds. More than 1,200 international students from 80 countries attend classes. NDSU has bilateral student exchange agreements with institutions in Australia, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, Latvia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. There also are memorandums of understanding with other countries such as Belize, China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. NDSU students find it is easy to make friends and get involved with campus life. They can participate in more than 200 student organizations to develop personal and social relationships, explore new ideas, learn about people from around the world and augment their course work. The groups focus on academics, special interests, service, performing and visual arts, religion and recreation. There also are intercultural groups, honor societies, fraternities and sororities.

Fargo: a great place to live, work and study

2013 BISON SOFTBALL

The home of NDSU, Fargo is a bustling metropolitan area that is often listed as one of the best places to live in the country. Named an All-American City by the National Civic League in 2000, Fargo-Moorhead is the largest community between Minneapolis and Seattle. About 200,000 people make their home in Cass and Clay Counties. Often cited as a leader in economic development and job creation, the area is noted for its entertainment options, wealth of activities, excellent parks and outstanding shopping. Safe and clean, the community is receiving national acclaim. In a ranked listing for Businessweek.com, Bloomberg Rankings said Cass County as the best affordable place in the country. CareerBuilder named North Dakota as “the best state for job seekers.” Fargo was named to the “10 real estate markets to watch in 2011” list by Inman News. And Fargo ranked third among America’s “Least Angry Cities” by Men’s Health magazine.

A campus committed to the future

Advances have come and continue on many fronts across the university, and the people of NDSU are optimistically looking to the challenges and opportunities of the future. As President Bresciani says, “The future of North Dakota is at a point of awakening – and our imagination is the only limit to the future. We at NDSU are poised to help make that future a reality. The best is yet to come.”

ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT Gene Taylor, athletic director

2013 BISON SOFTBALL

When he came to North Dakota State University in the summer of 2001, Gene Taylor inherited a department surrounded by a whirlwind of questions. In his first year as the director of athletics at North Dakota State, Taylor was asked to spearhead a comprehensive study and evaluation of the Bison athletic department. He has guided the athletics program through the unpredictable waters of reclassification to NCAA Division I from Division II. One of most important pieces of the transition was securing conference affiliations for all 16 sports. The Bison are currently members of The Summit League, Missouri Valley Football Conference and Western Wrestling Conference. Taylor also played an instrumental part of forming the Great West Football Conference in February 2004, an affiliation that gave the Bison football program an immediate home in Division I. He served as chair of the coaches committee. The Bison football team won the 2011 FCS National Championship in their second playoff appearance. The NDSU men’s basketball, women’s volleyball and softball programs have qualified for NCAA national tournaments capped off by softball advancing to the 2009 Super Regional. Individuals representing the Bison women’s golf, track and field, and wrestling teams have competed at NCAA championships Also on the reclassification checklist: fundraising. The NDSU athletics budget has tripled from $5 million in Taylor’s first year to $15 million, while the scholarship endowment has grown to $11.2 million, and Team Makers booster club support has went from $750,000 to $2.3 million. The athletics program is two-thirds of the way in the $32 million Building the Competitive Edge campaign to construct the Sanford Health Athletic Complex. Twice Taylor has been recognized for his success by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics. He was selected as the FCS Central Region AD of the Year in June 2008 and June 2012. Taylor received the Blue Key Honor Society Doctor of Service Award, one of the most prestigious honors a NDSU faculty member can be bestowed in April 2012. A student assistant to the associate athletic director in his undergraduate days at Arizona State University, Taylor came to NDSU after a 15-year stint at Navy (1986-2001) as an administrative assistant, assistant ticket manager, ticket manager, assistant athletic director for tickets and operations, and associate athletic director. Taylor is a 1980 business management graduate of Arizona State, and he received his master’s degree in sports administration in 1985 from St. Thomas University in Florida. He worked in the ticket office at Southern Methodist University in 1985-86 directly before joining the Naval Academy and was in the private restaurant business before that for five years. His tenure at Navy included serving as the commissioner of the five-team Collegiate Sprint Football League that includes Army, Navy, Penn, Princeton and Cornell. Taylor and his wife, Cathy, are the parents of a daughter, Casey, and a son, Jared.

Improvements are ongoing to the athletic facilities at North Dakota State University. The Fargodome completed multi-million dollar construction of football offices, meeting rooms, equipment rooms and athletic training space in 2006. Fundraising is nearly completed for a $32 million renovation and expansion of the Bison Sports Arena including an attached basketball training facility and the Shelly Ellig indoor track and field facility, which is scheduled to open in fall 2012. The Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse also was upgraded to include a new electronic scoreboard, sound system, windows and chairback bleachers.

STUDENT-ATHLETE The NDSU athletic programs strive to provide personalized support for all student-athletes. The administrators, coaches and staff at NDSU have made a commitment to ensure that the needs of the student-athlete come first.

ACE: Academic collegiate enhancement

Intercollegiate athletics, in cooperation with Orientation and Student Success, offers an academic enhancement program designed to assist all student-athletes. Tutors are on site and assist student-athletes by providing one-on-one or small group assistance. Each head coach has specific academic criteria for admission into the program. In cooperation with various services and units available for students at NDSU, the ACE program includes: • Academic orientations • Helping student-athletes improve study skills for academic success • Identifying university resources to assist student-athletes • Coordinating structured study and tutorial programs • Monitoring semester and yearly academic progress

Residence life

Living on campus is an important part of the college experience. It’s a way to make new friends and join a variety of educational, cultural, social and recreational activities. National studies show students living on campus are more likely to persist in their education and earn higher GPAs than their off-campus peers. The Department of Residence Life offers a variety of options for on-campus living, from traditional men’s and women’s halls to four-bedroom apartments. The goal is to provide NDSU students a clean, safe, comfortable and affordable environment where academic success is encouraged and supported. On-campus living offers the opportunity to become part of a learning community.

Strength and conditioning

NDSU takes a comprehensive approach to the physical development of the student-athlete. Strength training, speed development, plyometrics, agility and conditioning programs are based on the specific movements and physiological demands of each sport. Under the supervision of NDSU’s four full-time strength and conditioning coaches, Bison student-athletes follow year-round training programs that increase each student-athlete’s level of strength, power, speed, agility, conditioning and flexibility.

With four network television stations, three sports talk radio hosts, and the state’s largest daily newspaper all headquartered in Fargo, the Bison are continually a hot topic locally and in the region. Along with regular television news coverage on ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX affiliates, the Bison receive expanded regional and national coverage of select regular-season games and championship events on ESPN, Fox Sports Net, CBS College Sports, and other regional carriers.

GoBison.com

NORTH DAKOTA AT A GLANCE The Peace Garden State

One trip to North Dakota and you’ll understand why it’s known as the friendliest and safest state to visit. In fact, from agricultural products to quality of life, North Dakota is often at the top of the charts. Discover the spirit of North Dakota and unlock the fascinating stories from the state’s legendary past.The glow of the breathtaking Northern Lights shines brightly on the paths taken by historical legends George Armstrong Custer, Theodore Roosevelt, Sitting Bull, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and Sakakawea along with the state’s contemporary heroes, Lawrence Welk, Peggy Lee, Roger Maris, Phil Jackson, Virgil Hill, Rick Helling, Darin Erstad and Travis Hafner. From the settlers of the past to the farmers of the present, agriculture always has been and will continue to be the strength of North Dakota. The state is home to some of the richest soil in the world. North Dakota is a prime exporter of agricultural products, taking the trophy in production of several crops. North Dakota ranks first in the production of flaxseed, canola, durum wheat, all dry edible beans, all dry edible peas, spring wheat, honey, lentils, sunflowers, barley and oats. About 10 percent of North Dakota’s area, the band of rich soil 40 miles west of the Red River, is often called the “Breadbasket of the World.” Livestock production is second only to wheat in North Dakota’s agricultural economy. It is most important in western North Dakota where the land is less suited for grain crops. The main livestock are beef, dairy cattle and hogs. The importance of cattle ranching has been challenged in recent years by the development of North Dakota’s tremendous oil and coal reserves. North Dakota’s oil reserves - known as the Bakken and the Three Forks Formations - have been making headlines for their size and viability. Some reports estimate the Bakken Formation could boost the U.S.’s oil reserves by 10x. Currently, an average of 218,000 barrels of oil are pumped from wells in North Dakota each day. In 2008, oil production became the #2 industry in North Dakota, which is the fourth largest oil producing state in the U.S. Gas was first discovered in North Dakota in 1907. Today more of the state’s natural gas is a by-product of oil production. More than 92-million cubic feet of natural gas is captured annually in North Dakota. Among coal-producing states, North Dakota ranks ninth and produces 3 percent of the nation’s output. North Dakota has one of the world’s largest deposits of lignite coal. Quality of life in the heartland is rarely matched. In its annual crime survey, CQ Press has ranked North Dakota the safest state in the nation in 11 of the last 15 years. There’s a little bit of something for everyone in North Dakota. The state is home to a variety of cultures, including Scandinavian, Ukrainian, German, Germans from Russia, and Native American. North Dakota’s 14 state parks and recreation areas are nestled in the shadows of historic forts and sprawled among the stunning Badlands. From primitive campsites to cabin rentals, evening programs in outdoor amphitheaters to guided interpretive trails, you’ll find quite joys and great adventures. North Dakota’s invigorating winter days, plentiful snowfall and varied terrain have made it a winter playground. Activities such as snowmobiling, downhill and cross-country skiing, ice fishing, sledding and skating are favorite pastimes. —Information and photos from the North Dakota Tourism Division


FARGO-MOORHEAD AT A GLANCE An All-American City

Less than ten thousand years ago, the area that is now Fargo-Moorhead was 200 feet below the surface of Lake Agassiz, a huge inland sea formed at the end of the last iceage. Over centuries the waters receded, leaving six feet of rich, black soil that today make the Red River Valley one of the world’s most fertile farmlands, with Fargo and Moorhead as its center. Located in the center of North America, the Red River Valley is a 30-40 mile wide strip of land that gently rises westward from the Red River running northward between North Dakota and Minnesota, extending into Canada. Rich, black soil produces an abundance of crops such as potatoes, sunflowers, sugar beets, wheat, corn, soybeans, alfalfa, oats, and lentils. Industry and agriculture are closely related in Fargo-Moorhead. With two meat-packaging plants, sugar and sunflower processing plants, creameries and a malting barley plant, the metro area processes most of its own products. When you visit Fargo-Moorhead, you will find yourself in one of the most warm-hearted communities in the entire nation. Our community is currently the largest shopping destination between Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Spokane, Washington. We are home to a vibrant economy, unique attractions and numerous dining establishments of every kind and flavor. The two cities are divided by the Red River of the North which also serves as the border between the states of North Dakota and Minnesota. The river itself is unique as it flows north to eventually drain into Lake Winnipeg. The city of Fargo was named for one of the owners of the Wells-Fargo Express Company, William G. Fargo. In 1885, the existence of many lawyers in Fargo and easy divorce laws prompted thousands of unhappy married people to apply for the “Ten-Minute Divorce.” Also in Fargo’s history is the Great Fire of 1893, started when Mrs. Rosa Herzman discarded ashes behind her grocery store. They were ignited, and fire spread from what is now Main Avenue to the north. By the end of the day, downtown Fargo was devastated. The city of Moorhead was named after William G. Moorhead, an executive of the Northern Pacific Railway. In fact, the Northern Pacific Railway had a profound impact on both the economy and population of the area. Originally settled by Scandinavian and European immigrants, Fargo and Moorhead became boomtowns with the arrival of the NP in 1871. When the Northern Pacific Railroad was selecting its crossing site over the Red River, eager land speculators spared no effort to learn of the location. Railroad officials marked a false route a few miles north of Moorhead, Minnesota to throw speculators off the trail. This area, now Oakport Township, was known for years as “Bogusville.” Under the Homestead Act, settlers were given 160 acres in exchange for living on the land and farming part of it for at least five years. Suddenly

Fargo-Moorhead became a mecca for hopeful refugees from the overcrowded east. The railroad brought a constant stream of settlers seeking a new life on America’s newest frontier. Today the population of the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area is more than 200,000, and there seems to be no end in sight to the persistent prosperity and growth. While agriculture is still prominent in the local economy, Fargo-Moorhead has also become an important focal point for other professions, including government, education, medicine, retailing and manufacturing. From dance to theater to music, Fargo-Moorhead is rich with cultural arts. The local attractions are mostly reflective of the roots of our original settlers. The Heritage Hjemkomst Interpretive Center and Bonanzaville, USA are two sites filled with pioneer spirit and old-time hospitality. The area park districts maintain more than 3,000 acres of parkland and recreational facilities. Fargo-Moorhead takes pride in its cultural park, Trollwood, as well as its all-year indoor skating and hockey arenas. Several swimming pools, numerous ball diamonds and winter-summer playgrounds and picnic grounds bring the great outdoors to all the people regardless of the weather. In addition to the popular NCAA Division I athletic events at North Dakota State University, Fargo-Moorhead is also home to the F-M RedHawks professional baseball team of the American Association, and the USHL’s Fargo Force hockey team. —Information from the Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Vistitors Bureau

NCAA COMPLIANCE

N

orth Dakota State University’s athletics program is rich in tradition. Its storied history includes national, regional, and conference championships and champions. On top of these athletic achievements are numerous academic championships earned by our student-athletes. As we strive to continue the championship tradition of Bison Athletics, we must always seek the highest of ethical conduct. North Dakota State University is unconditionally committed to NCAA rules and regulations. As an NCAA member institution, we must be responsible for ensuring that everyone abides by those rules. There is no margin for unethical behavior.

ARE YOU A REPRESENTATIVE OF NDSU’S ATHLETICS INTERESTS? You are a representative of NDSU’s athletics interests, more commonly known as a “booster”, if you meet any of the following conditions: — You have been or are a member of any organization that promotes NDSU’s athletics program (e.g., NDSU Foundation, Team Makers). — You have made a financial contribution to the NDSU athletics department or its booster organization. — You have ever assisted in the recruitment of prospects for NDSU. — You have provided benefits (e.g. summer jobs or occasional family meals) to enrolled student-athletes. — You have arranged for or provided employment for enrolled student-athletes, or assisted in providing any benefit to enrolled student-athletes or their families. — You have ever, in any way, promoted the athletics program at NDSU. NOTE: Please remember that once you become a booster, you retain that identity indefinitely.

WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE? A prospective student-athlete, commonly known as a “prospect,” is any individual who has started classes for the 9th grade. In addition, student-athletes enrolled in preparatory school or two-year colleges are considered prospects. Ultimately, a student remains a prospect until enrollment at a four-year collegiate institution. It is possible for a younger student-athlete to be a prospect so it is a good idea to treat all athletes as prospects until they enroll.
