Join us for a free family-friendly celebration with games, food, prizes, and some surprises. Plus, the CMU recently finished a remodel and addition. Please celebrate with the CMU and see how your student union continues to evolve while we honor its legacy and share your memories of the Union on social media using #CMUCelebrating50.

    Eurospring - All Year Reunion

    Greetings, Eurospring alumni!  In 3 weeks MSUM celebrates Homecoming 2017- “Forever Red”, and we are hosting a Eurospring alumni Reunion!  We’ll meet at Usher’s House lower level (700 1st Ave North in Moorhead) from 5:00 – 7:00 PM on Saturday, October 7.  We’ll have food and memories to share, and a cash bar will be available.

    Space is limited to 50 people, so please RSVP to so we know who to expect.  It’s a great weekend to reconnect with your Eurospring peers and check out the activities at the university.  Former faculty leaders will also be invited.  

    We face challenges as the funding structures for higher education in Minnesota change, so we’ll talk about the future as well.  Please send photos and memories to me at the e-mail listed above, whether you can join us or not, and I’ll prepare a slide show highlighting your contributions. There are a lot of fantastic restaurants in the F-M area, so plan to come to Usher’s house and then continue your reunion over dinner with friends.  I hope to see you there!
