125th Anniversary Timeline

  • Moorhead State Through the Decades

    The Moorhead Normal School opened in the fall of 1888 and the first graduating class of eight students received their degrees in 1890. In 1921, the need for high school teachers led the state legislature to authorize to award bachelor’s degrees, renaming the school Moorhead State Teachers College. During the Depression, on February 9, 1930, Old Main Hall building burned. By 1932 a new administration building opened named in honor of President Ray MacLean. From the ashes arose the "birth of the greater Moorhead State Teachers College," and a new symbol for the campus, the fire-breathing Dragon. During March 1943 to June 1944, 1,650 aircrew men did aviation training at MSTC.
