Eighteen years ago, Steve and I both graduated from Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD. While at Northern, my whole life was consumed by classes, tests, projects, friends, workstudy, roommate drama, etc. I really enjoyed the 4 years I spent at NSU... 3 of which were also shared with Steve after he transferred from NDSU to be at NSU.
On Monday, we went to NSU campus. Steve and I both experienced a rush of emotions and excitement reliving our college years and sharing it with our kids. We noticed all of the building improvements; even picked up some new NSU apparel from the bookstore. I showed the girls where I used to work and popped in to say hi to my former "boss" Judy Burgaard, who is a dear friend of mine.
We lived a completely different life while at NSU. Different priorities and focus. Essentially, we were discovering who we were, what we stood for and working hard to figure out what we wanted to do in life. Steve & I got engaged 5 months before graduating and moving to Marshall, MN. I'd like to think that NSU put us on the right path and helped us to get to where we are today. Thanks NSU! Go Wolves!!
