The BBF hosted NCAA regional playoffs in 1984, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1995, 1998, 1999 and 2001.

The Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse has provided a unique and exciting venue for the North Dakota State volleyball team and several NCAA and conference tournaments since 1978. Formerly known as the Physical Education Building, it was renamed the Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse on June 7, 1995, in recognition of gifts received from Fargo businessman Art Bunker and his wife, Norene. At the request of the Bunkers, the name includes that of Art’s former NDSU basketball coach and life-long friend, Chuck Bentson. Coach Bentson retired in 1981 after 32 years of service. He was the longest serving coach in NDSU history and second on the alltime wins list. He died Jan. 20, 1994. Bison volleyball teams have compiled a 339-61 record in matches played at the Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse since 1978 for an .848 winning percentage. North Dakota State had a 42-match home winning streak snapped on Sept. 25, 1992, against Northern Michigan before a crowd of 884 fans. The Bison had not lost at the BBF since Nov. 13, 1987, when Omaha turned the trick. The NDSU home-court winning streak is tied for eighth longest in NCAA Division II history. One of the top draws in college volleyball, North Dakota State consistently ranked among the top programs in NCAA Division II attendance, including four runnerup finishes, since the AVCA began compiling crowd figures in 1989. Crowds of 1,000 or more have jammed into this facility 45 times with a record 2,259 enthusiasts packing the BBF on Nov. 5, 1986, when the Bison squared off with crosstown rival Minnesota State Moorhead—one of

the top regular-season attendance figures in NCAA Division II history. North Dakota State has also played select home matches at the Bison Sports Arena. The BSA was the site of the 1988 NCAA Division II national tournament, and it hosted a crowd of 1,547 when the Bison faced the defending national champion Washington Huskies in the 2005 Doublewood Inn Classic tournament. NDSU has drawn over 1,000 fans on back-to-back nights eight times. The arena has received several upgrades recently, including a new digital scoreboard, message center and statistical displays in 2006, and a new sound system in 2012. Previously covered-up windows were replaced for additional light and the floor was refinished to emphasize the volleyball markings in 2008, and wooden bleacher seats were replaced with the current chairbacks in 2009, reducing the permanent seating capacity from 2,100 to 1,206.

BISON STAFF Kari Thompson Head Coach Second Season

Age: 31 Born: April 3, 1981 Hometown: Amherst, Wis. Education: Green Bay, 2003

Kari Thompson has a 35-11 record entering her second full season as head women’s volleyball coach at North Dakota State. After joining the Bison as an assistant coach in 2006, she was named interim head coach October 2010 and became the the 11th head coach in program history January 2011. In her interim role in 2010, Thompson went 9-2 and led the Bison to their third straight Summit League championship and second NCAA tournament in three years. NDSU finished 20-11 overall and tied for first place with a 14-4 record in The Summit League. She was named Summit League Coach of the Year in 2011, her first full season at the helm, as the Bison went 26-9 and won a fourth straight Summit League title with a 16-2 mark. NDSU made another NCAA tournament appearance and achieved the program’s highest ranking at No. 42 in the NCAA Rating Percentage Index. Thompson, 31, was a 2010 recipient of the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s “Thirty Under 30” award recognizing the top young coaches in the country. “I’m thrilled to continue to be a part of an institution with a rich tradition of academic and athletic excellence and a strong commitment to the volleyball program,” Thompson said. “This great volleyball community combined with a great volleyball facility provides an exciting environment to showcase these athletes.” Thompson was the head coach of a USA Athletes International team that competed in the June 2011 European Smash Tour in Italy and Austria. She says it was an enjoyable experience, but one that made her appreciate the quality of NDSU’s program. “I think we have a very special group of players here,” Thompson said. “It’s the work ethic. When people come here, they don’t come to sit on the beach. There’s no beaches here. They definitely come to play volleyball, go to school, and work hard.” Thompson herself has embodied that same work ethic. She has climbed the career chain since beginning as a volunteer assistant in 2003 at Green Bay, where she was a three-year volleyball letterwinner. Before coming to NDSU, she spent two years as a graduate assistant for volleyball operations at Alabama, where she was in charge of the off-court duties such as stats, video breakdown, and travel. She says the behind-the-scenes work was a unique training opportunity. “I also got to watch every single practice and really pay attention to how players interact with each other, and how they respond to different coaching. You can only see so much as one coach when you’re involved on the floor, so when you’re sitting back and watching like I

was, I think I saw a lot more and learned a lot about the game in those two years.” Thompson spent her first 4 1/2 years at NDSU as the team’s top assistant before being thrust into the head job midseason. Consider it a trial run. “I feel like I was very well prepared to step into this even though I may have not thought I was ready when that happened. It makes me very confident now.” A native of Amherst, Wis., she began her collegiate career at Concordia-St. Paul and graduated from Green Bay with a bachelor’s degree in communications and the arts in December 2003.

Assistant Coach Second Season

Jason Reed, an assistant coach for four seasons at Western Michigan, is in his second year as an assistant women’s volleyball coach at North Dakota State. Reed was part of four straight 20-win teams at Western Michigan that won three straight Mid-American Conference West Division titles. The Broncos ranked in the top 50 nationally in digs per set each year, including a No. 5 ranking last season. Reed coached the MAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2007 and 2008 and helped lead Western Michigan to the NCAA regional semifinals in 2008. The Broncos went 28-7 that year with a loss to eventual national champion Penn State in the round of 16. Reed started his coaching career in 2005 as a volunteer assistant at Michigan State and in 2006 was an assistant coach at West Alabama, an NCAA Division II program. He was a standout defensive player in college as libero for the Michigan State men’s club team and was the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year in back-to-back seasons. Born into a U.S. military family in Germany, he graduated from Battle Creek (Mich.) High School in 2001. He earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Michigan State in 2005 and a master’s degree from Western Michigan in 2010.

SEASON PREVIEW Newcomers Ready to Step In as Bison Volleyball Begins Pursuit of Fifth Straight Title North Dakota State is in familiar territory as the preseason favorite to win its fifth straight Summit League women’s volleyball championship, but there are plenty of unfamiliar names and faces that could have a big role in how that projection plays out. NDSU returns three starters and its libero from last year’s 26-9 team that won the league outright with a 16-2 mark before advancing to its third NCAA tournament in four seasons. But the 11-player roster also includes five newcomers. “It’s definitely a new make-up,” said secondyear NDSU head coach Kari Thompson. “Our upperclassmen and returners did a nice job of getting to know all the incoming players right away and treating them like equals. We need them to compete, and we need them to be a part of this program right away.” NDSU has to replace three starters, including middle hitter Janna Deyle, four-time All-Summit League middle hitter Chrissy Knuth, and reigning Summit League Player of the Year and Setter of the Year Jennifer Lopez. Setter is the biggest vacancy with backup Jordan Kissman not returning to the team after two seasons. The Bison will turn to a pair of newcomers in senior Catherine Yager of St. Michael, Minn., who transferred from Michigan, and freshman Emily Riese from Fond du Lac, Wis. “I am excited about what both of them bring to the court,” Thompson said. “They give us different looks. Both can set the ball very consistently, put our hitters in great spots, and understand the offense.” Yager, who played in just 10 matches her first three years at Michigan, still has the composure that comes with Big Ten experience, and at 6 feet tall gives the Bison more size up front. Thompson says she is a good blocker and defender, and her left-handedness is an advantage for the attacking game. “With all the other hitters we have right now who are going to be drawing the blocks, she’s going to be pretty wide open sometimes,” Thompson said. “Being left-handed adds a whole new dimension because you can hit it in so many other places.” Riese, who is making the jump from high school to college ball, will have more of a learning curve. Thompson says the development will come in time. “She’s not necessarily as trained, but we’ll develop all that,” Thompson said. “She takes risks, she finds hitters, she connects with her hitters. Emily makes her teammates play better every time she steps on the court, gets them to compete and pushes the envelope, which is exciting in that role.” NDSU should continue to have one of the top attacking tandems in the league with the return of two All-Summit League performers. Senior middle hitter Megan Lambertson returns after a summer training stint with the USA Volleyball A2 national team, and senior outside hitter Brynn Joki was an alternate for the same program. “They’ve both worked on their game so much since last year,” Thompson said. “For Brynn, going to the tryout and being an alternate kind of sparked her and gave her a little extra fire. She really turned into a different attacker over the course of the spring.”

Brynn Joki led the nation with 49 block solos last year. Lambertson ranked fifth in the nation with a .410 hitting percentage and finished second on the team with 308 kills and 2.83 kills per set. Joki was the national leader with 49 block solos, and led the Bison with 397 kills, 3.23 kills per set and 36 aces. Outside hitter Lauren Cammack is looking to expand upon a solid first year that saw her land on the Summit League All-Freshman Team despite missing a short time due to injury. She was third in the league stats in service aces per set. “Lauren didn’t necessarily get to put the full conference season together, which will be exciting for her to keep healthy and see what she can do in that type of role all the time,” Thompson said. “Her top-spin jump serve is very consistent and we rely upon that.” It could be a breakout year for fellow sophomore Carissa Whalen, who stepped in at outside and middle hitter when needed during a pair of absences in the Bison lineup. Thompson says she matched and sometimes exceeded Lambertson’s play during the two middle hitters’ spring workouts. “I think she’ll be the one that will really come out and wow people,” Thompson said. “She did a solid job and it never was anything flashy. She’s doing a great job blocking and attacking, and is definitely pushing Megan every day which is something we need in that position.” Two freshmen join the ranks on the front line with middle hitter Kelly Thurow from Ramona, S.D., and outside hitter Jenni Fassbender from Kaukauna, Wis., who is projected to start as the right-side hitter. “The blocking part was something I know Jenni was nervous about on the right side because you see so many balls there, but she’s been doing a great job with it,” Thompson said. “You tell her to do something and she goes after it a hundred percent and never doubts it. She just puts everything out there and has really smart instincts.”

Thurow has stiff competition ahead of her at the middle hitter position, but Thompson likes her versatility in blocking and defense. “In the middle you have to be fast, so there’s less of a learning curve there sometimes if you just have a go-go-go mentality,” Thompson said. “We’ve put her on the left side to block, we’ve put her on the right side to block, and she does a great job. Even if we throw her in the back court she has that same mentality and she makes plays.” NDSU’s backcourt will be anchored by senior Andrea Henning, who played every set of every match at libero last year. Her 547 digs ranked third most in school single-season history. Junior defensive specialist Danielle Dombeck returns and Kishwaukee College transfer Ariel Listebarger from Harvard, Ill., joins the Bison as a defensive specialist. “I was really happy with our scrimmage. Defensively, we’ve been making a lot more plays than we have before,” Thompson said. “That was exciting to see - a lot of touches, balls up, and keeping the ball in play. We’re not going to get the perfect dig all the time. We just need to keep it off the floor and keep it going.” The Bison defense ranked 26th in the nation last year in digs per set, but was just sixth in the The Summit League. Meanwhile, Henning’s 4.41 digs per set was ninth among Summit League individuals despite ranking sixth best in NDSU history. Thompson says that’s a testament to the style of play in the league. “There’s a lot of things that go with that,” Thompson said, referring to the number of blocks a team has, the ability to get kills and hit for a high percentage, and aggressive serving that sometimes leads to aces or free balls back over the net. “When you look at our league, there are some really good defensive teams, and they have to be,” Thompson said. “They don’t have the size, so they don’t have as big of a block. Oakland, South Dakota State and IUPUI all had great liberos and were digging way above where our individual players were.” NDSU continues to measure its defensive success by opponent hitting percentage, one of five categories the Bison led in the Summit League stats last year. The formula has been tested and worked, so don’t expect things to change even with two new setters running the show. “We still have the same offense, but you’ll probably see a couple more sets run more frequently just because they’re going to be a better connection based on each setter,” Thompson said. “I want them to trust their instincts and make decisions on the court that are great, because they’re both very capable of doing that.” The tests will come early and often as NDSU faces another challenging non-conference schedule. Five of the first seven matches are against NCAA playoff teams from a year ago in tournaments at Northern Illinois, Northern Colorado and Wisconsin. There are seven matches against teams in the top 50 of last year’s NCAA RPI. “We showed last year in the matches that we competed against Northern Iowa and Iowa State,” Thompson said of two five-set losses to nationally ranked opponents. “I feel like we put ourselves out there and we got beat. But there were other matches where we didn’t really put ourselves out there and those are the ones we regret more.”

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

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.

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: 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

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 Lynn Dorn, women’s athletic director Enthusiasm, innovation and hard work are the cornerstones to Lynn Dorn’s remarkable 35-year record at North Dakota State University. In Dorn’s tenure as the director of women’s athletics, the Bison women’s teams have seven national titles, 62 North Central Conference titles, 21 Summit League championships and eight conference all-sports trophies to their credit. Three Bison competitors have been named the Honda Broderick Division II Most Outstanding Female Athlete, five received the NCC’s Stan Marshall Award, and there have been 136 All-Americans in six sports since 1981.

Named one of the five most influential people in Division II athletics by College Sports magazine in 1995, Dorn quickly credits others for NDSU’s ongoing success. “It’s the quality of the people who are part of the team at NDSU. The credit really goes to the coaches, who are outstanding individuals committed to the welfare of the student-athlete,” she says. “To be able to manage that talent is exciting.

student-athlete support 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.

Sports medicine

Student-athletes at NDSU receive outstanding care for athletic-related injuries. The athletic training staff has access to fully equipped facilities at the Bison Sports Arena, Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse, Fargodome and Newman Outdoor Field. Scott Woken, director of sports medicine, heads a staff of 10 certified athletic trainers who attend all practices and competitions, home and away. Plus, several talented and skilled Fargo-Moorhead area medical specialists assist in the diagnosis and treatment of Bison student-athletes.

Media coverage

The media spotlight shines on NDSU’s athletic teams from the opening of fall camps into the summer months. 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

GoBison.com is the online home of NDSU athletics. In 2004, the university partnered with NeuLion to launch the most interactive website in the athletic department’s history.

north dakota 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 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.

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.

WHO CAN RECRUIT FOR NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY? Only North Dakota State University coaches who successfully complete the annual NCAA Coaches Certificate Exam, which tests their knowledge of NCAA recruitment legislation, are permitted to be involved in the recruiting process. As a booster, you are specifically prohibited from: — Making any recruiting contacts with prospects or their relatives. This includes telephone calls, letters, emails, and facsimiles, along with any face-to-face contact either on or off campus.

With your assistance and cooperation, we believe we can continue to represent the university with integrity, the highest of ethical standards, and the belief in doing what is right. Whether you are an alum, donor, booster, or friend of Bison Athletics, the university is grateful for your support. Together we can accomplish the common goal of ensuring a positive experience for all student-athletes. NDSU is subject to penalties for all violations committed by any alum, donor, booster or friend. Please contact the NDSU Compliance Office at (701) 231-5696 if you need a specific NCAA rule interpretation.

— Assisting NDSU coaches by picking up transcripts, films, or any other information pertaining to a prospect’s ability from the prospect’s educational institution. — Providing a benefit to high school, prep school or community college coaches.

NCAA RULES REGARDING THE INTERNET The internet is considered similar to email, telephone calls, or general correspondence. Therefore, it should not be used by boosters to contact prospects, their families, or their coaches. Participation in “chat rooms” with prospects is strictly prohibited.

NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH PROSPECTS — You may not provide financial aid or benefit of any kind (e.g., clothing, special discounts, lodging, meals, transportation, tickets, loans of money) to prospects or their relatives. — You may not contact a prospective student-athlete to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend NDSU. — You may not provide transportation or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect or his/ her relatives or friends to visit campus. — You may not earmark funds nor pay for specific prospects to attend an NDSU summer camp. — You may not employ or arrange for employment of a prospect before the completion of his/her senior year. After graduation, a booster may employ a prospect as long as compensation is for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with experience and the going rate. — You may not provide anything to a prospect or the prospect’s family or friends without prior approval from the Compliance Office.

NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH ENROLLED STUDENT-ATHLETES — You may not pay for or arrange for payment of room, board, or any type of transportation at any time for currently enrolled student-athletes, their relatives, or their friends. — You may not provide student-athletes with any sort of extra benefit, which refers to any special arrangement provided a student-athlete or his/her relatives or friends with the benefit unavailable to the general student population.

— You may not provide student-athletes with any special discounts, payment arrangements (e.g., cosigning a loan), credits on a purchase (e.g., airline ticket, clothing), or services (e.g., dry cleaning, transportation). — You may not allow student-athletes to use your telephone or make free calls. — You may not provide awards or gifts to studentathletes for any reason. This also prohibits honorariums for speaking engagements. All awards to student-athletes must meet all NCAA legislation and be approved by the Compliance Office. — You may not entertain student-athletes or their families and friends. You may not even buy them a cup of coffee or a can of soda. The only exception to this is that you may, on an occasional basis, provide a student-athlete or team (not family members or friends) with a meal. The meal can be catered, but it must be in your home. — You may not use the name or picture of a studentathlete to advertise a commercial product. — You may not purchase complimentary admissions from a current student-athlete. — You may not provide an honorarium to a studentathlete for speaking engagement. NOTE: These rules apply throughout the studentathlete’s entire enrollment at NDSU.

WHAT CAN YOU DO? — Forward information about prospects to the appropriate NDSU coaching staff member. n View a prospect’s athletics contest on your own initiative, provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her relatives, coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the academic or athletic abilities of the prospect. You are responsible for all incurred costs or fees at a contest. — Speak to a prospect on the telephone ONLY if the prospect initiates the call. You are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but you may exhibit normal civility. Under such circumstances, you must refer questions about the athletics program to the athletics department staff. — Employ a prospect or student-athlete, provided permission has been granted by the athletics department. The student-athlete will ask you to provide employment information to the athletics department prior to employment.
