    MSUM and WDAY announced they will partner together to carry all 2014-15 home football and basketball conference games as well as 11 DragonsLIVE coaches shows on the newly branded WDAY'Z EXTRA channel.

    Eight people have been named 2014 Distinguished Alumni by the MSUM Alumni Foundation. Alumni are selected based on personal and professional accomplishments in the years following graduation.

    For 100 years, MSUM was a college on the prairie without a philosophy department. That changed in 1962 with the arrival of philosopher and professor Charles Magel, who developed the department. He died in March and left the university an $800,000 gift.
