My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Dickinson State
Location: Dickinson ND
Like a lot of the colleges I have profiled this year I really do not know much about Dickinson State University which is located in Dickinson ND. I do know now it’s nickname is the “College on the Hill”.
Dickinson State Normal School was established in 1916 by a constitutional amendment approved by North Dakotan voters. Classes began in 1918 with a two-year program designed to train elementary and secondary school teachers. Over 100 students attended those first classes, which were held at Dickinson High School—the newly established university had not yet begun construction. May Hall, the first building on campus, was completed in 1924.
The historic DSU campus is situated on a hilltop in the city of Dickinson, North Dakota, giving it the nickname “College on the Hill.”
Dickinson ND is located on the western edge of the state.
Dickinson has slightly less than 3,000 students enrolled.
