Welcome to the Dragon Family: Ty Filley

Meet MSUM’s newest digital marketing specialist, Ty Filley. Ty supports digital marketing efforts for undergraduate and international enrollment, community outreach, the College of Business, Analytics & Communication, the College of Science, Health & the Environment, and other university-wide campaigns.

Q: What drew you to MSUM?
A: I graduated from MSUM in the Spring of 2016, so I was excited to come back and take on a new role here.

Q: How do you prefer to start your workday?
A: I enjoy starting my day by checking the local news and seeing what is happening in our local community. In college, I studied broadcast journalism and mass communications so staying updated is very important to me.

Q: What energizes you at work?
A: The sense of community at MSUM is so infectious. I love being outside, exploring campus, and meeting students.

Q: What is an interesting fact about yourself?
A: I am part of the 11% of the population that is left-handed.

Q: What is a piece of advice that has stuck with you?
A: One of my professors at MSUM use to say, “In 20 years, people will not remember what you said but they will remember how you made them feel. Remember to be intentional.”

Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
A: Besides Moorhead? I am a huge Lord of the Rings fan so I would love to visit New Zealand where the trilogy was filmed.
