High school and college students to perform

February 24, 2014 | Sarah Hoffbeck

By Matthew Liedke

The North Dakota State College of Science Performing Arts Department is teaming up with other Twin Towns schools to perform a pair of concerts.

The two concerts will include a band performance at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24 and a choir performance at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 3. The concerts will include the NDSCS Concert Choir and Concert Band and the Wahpeton and Breckenridge High School bands.

Both of the concerts will take place at the Bremer Bank Theatre in the Harry Stern and Ella Stern Cultural Center on the NDSCS campus. Both performances will also feature a pair of guest conductors. The band will be led by Peter Haberman and the choir by Michael Smith.

Laurie LeKang, associate professor and Performing Arts Department chair, explained that NDSCS has been holding the concerts for decades.

“The heads of the performing arts at all three schools work together to make it happen,” LeKang said. “It’s a real good experience, to work with people on a different level. I have ninth grade students working with college students, so it’s good for learning all the way around.”

Both concerts are free and open to the public. The concerts will be accepting free-will donations.

“The concerts are done to spread good will across the river,” LeKang said. “It gets the community to work together and helps everyone get to know each other.”

“People will be able to hear a wide variety of music and people can hear it from a different perspective since there are different directors involved,” LeKang said.

ND DPI: North Dakota honors College and Career Readiness Award Winners

February 19, 2014 | Sarah Hoffbeck

The North Dakota College and Career Readiness Awards were presented this morning in the Brynhild Haugland Room of the state capitol, announced State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kirsten Baesler.   North Dakota collaborated with ACT, Inc. to celebrate the state’s progress toward the goal of college- and career-readiness for all students.

“Our College and Career Readiness Award recipients epitomize the best North Dakota has to offer,” Baesler said. “I wish each of our recipients the best as they are considered by ACT, Inc. for overall recognition.”

North Dakota presented one award in each category. The winners are: Sam Lim, Fargo North High School, Student Readiness; HESS, Inc. , Workplace Success (employer); North Dakota State College of Science, Career Preparedness (community college); and Carrington High School College and Career Transition (high school).  Criteria in each category reflect the student’s or the entity’s focus on the college and career readiness process. Together, the four awards reflect elements that help a young person successfully make the journey from high school to career: academic and community service excellence; successfully preparing students for their next steps after high school; ensuring students have the knowledge and skills to enter the workforce; and providing professional growth activities in the workplace and encouraging community service.

The 2014 College and Career Readiness Campaign awards program is a means to recognize a student and also three other entities that embody or advance North Dakota’s commitment to preparing students for success. The state’s award winners will now be considered by ACT, Inc. for overall recognition.

North Dakota will nominate its recipients for overall honors. An ACT, Inc., committee will select one national recipient in each of the four categories; national award recipients will be recognized at the ACT National Gala on College and Career Readiness in Washington, DC, on June 3. In addition to North Dakota, seven states are participating in the 2014 campaign: Alabama, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.

Miller Electric Welders: School Ramps Up to Meet the Rush of Jobs in North Dakota

February 19, 2014 | Sarah Hoffbeck

It’s a bit of the Old West in parts of North Dakota: Boomtowns like Williston, N.D., home to what some call the richest oil deposits ever found in North America, have more than tripled in population in the last couple of years and the oil field jobs keep coming — the problem is finding qualified employees. The desire to find skilled workers is statewide and creates an advantage for young welders.

North Dakota State College of Science has been around for more than 100 years. As the second-oldest community college in the nation, it has witnessed booms before. This one is different in that the acute lack of skilled labor can be traced to a changed way of growing up here and around the country.

“In the past students would come in here and have a good idea of how to work with hand tools. That’s changed,” says Joel Johnson, program coordinator, NDSCS Wahpeton. “Today we start off by teaching very basic skills. Young people are not exposed to tools and fixing things like we were growing up.”

What hasn’t changed is the enthusiasm and the draw to welding once a young person has been introduced to the craft. Johnson and his counterpart in Fargo, Lee Larson, along with the NDSCS welding staff work with 250 students a year. About a third are focused solely on welding while the others are learning welding as part of technical instruction in diesel mechanics, automotive and other certificated classes.

“Technology has changed and how you teach has changed,” says Lee Larson, program coordinator, NDSCS Fargo. “But the excitement and the awe that happens when you first strike an arc is still there!”

Jacob Doele is the exception to today’s average student. He grew up working with his father, helping him rebuild a car and receiving an unofficial education in hands-on-work. The Fargo native found welding in high school and is turning it into a career, graduating with a two-year associate degree from the Welding technical program in May.

“I knew I wanted to weld more the first time I did it in high school,” says the 20-year-old Doele. “Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) is my favorite. TIG welding appeals to the perfectionist in me.”

Doele’s journey into employment is a window with a view of what’s occurring in North Dakota. Local employers have recruited Doele, another from Minnesota and the western oil fields remain an option. He has choices.

“We have tons of choices,” says Doele. “A lot of classmates will head out west. I may stay closer to home, but this is definitely the right career choice if you want opportunity.”

It can be difficult to find students interested in welding and skills-related jobs. Occasionally Johnson will have an open bay during a class.

“The trouble is not in encouraging young people once they get here; it’s in drawing the students here in the first place,” says Johnson.

Non-traditional student Betty Dollinger is a great example of recruiting students into the classroom. Dollinger spent 12 years working various jobs in home and road construction. During the spring of 2012 she heard about a program aimed at getting women to try welding. All it took was a day spent in a welding lab, and she was hooked.

“I loved it (welding) from day one,” says Dollinger. “Then I looked at all the jobs available, the opportunities that come with a two-year certificate and I signed up here at the Fargo campus.”

Dollinger is completing her first year of the program. She’s keeping her options open when it comes to where she will end up a year from now.

Johnson and Larson keep the equipment in the labs modern and similar to what welders will see in the field. The learning cells in the main campus at Wahpeton have four new Dynasty® 200 DX welder with the TIGRunner® packages; while in Fargo, 20 XMT® series machines with feeders allow for multiprocess options. Six Invision™ 456 welders handle the bulk of the MIG duties in Fargo while four Dynasty 200 DX TIGRunners provide additional TIG capabilities. Both instructors want to ensure the students are receiving an education with top, cutting-edge equipment. The students also get a shot at some older equipment.

“The modern machines do so much for a student when it comes to settings. It’s click and go,” says Larson. “I think it’s important the student learns how to really work a welder on their own as well. Find the parameters; find what works with a material. It makes for a more well-rounded welder.”

A new class of students is already lining up in Wahpeton and Fargo for the new semester in August. Meanwhile employers keep calling campus looking for new recruits. The students who go through NDSCS know they’ll have plenty of options come graduation day.

Wahpeton Daily News: NDSCS spring enrollment shows a positive trend

February 18, 2014 | Janess Sveet

By Matthew Liedke, Wahpeton Daily News

A new enrollment report from North Dakota State College of Science is showing a positive trend for the two-year campus.

According to a press release from NDSCS, enrollment has gone up 24 percent during the past five years. College President Dr. John Richman described the number as nice steady growth.

“It all goes back to our mission. We are here to educate and train the workforce,” Richman said. “We have to graduate and place a very skilled workforce. These numbers that we’re talking about are a combination of our increased strategies and the faculty and staff’s efforts.”

The release also noted that in the current spring semester, NDSCS had an enrollment of 2,814, with 1,482 full-time students and 1,332 part-time students. In comparison, the spring class for 2013 was at 2,842, a 1 percent drop.

“It’s typical. I think most campuses report a smaller number from fall into spring and that number, comparing this spring to last, there are so many variables that go into it,” Richman said. “The number is right around 1 percent. That’s not a significant difference, we see it as being stable.

“We like to look at trends instead of snapshots,” he said. “Just looking from one spring to another, it’s not a fair comparison.”

In looking at the most recent five-year trend, Richman said, “When you assess the workforce needs that currently exist in our state and region, it shows we need more students entering, especially in those technical fields.

“The more students we can get into that type of program, the better chance we will have to get graduates and the better chance of filling the needs of employers,” Richman said.

To have that trend continue into the future, Richman explained the college has to provide a safe, clean, healthy, tech savvy, green, world class educational environment.

“And that’s the upkeep, that’s the maintenance efforts, that’s the capital projects we’ve been fortunate to have in the last several bienniums,” Richman said. “We do that so more students will want to come to the campus, more students will know about our campus and it will lead them to one of the more viable careers that exists today.”

Wahpeton Daily News: Job fair put employers one-on-one with students

February 18, 2014 | Janess Sveet

By Matthew Liedke, Wahpeton Daily News

Employers and students were able to connect with each other at North Dakota State College of Science Thursday during the school’s career fair.

In total, 194 employers were at the event with booths set up and 1,100 students from NDSCS came through to look at possible futures.

“It’s for students who are seeking both careers after graduation or internship experience,” said Jane Vangness Frisch, director of student success and career services at NDSCS.

The fair is an annual one, however, Vangness Frisch explained this year’s event focused on all kinds of employers and career opportunities.

“It allows for hiring from all areas, not just from one specific program,” Vangness Frisch said. “It’s a crossed disciplined fair.”

Vangness Frisch said the fair allows students to have connections with the employers in their field, and also gives them a chance to discover something new.

“It’s not just for the students who know what they want to do, but also for those who may not know exactly what to do with their degree,” she said. “This gives them exposure to the different fields and opportunities that are out there.

“The employers also appreciate this,” Vangness Frisch added. “It can be hard for a company to get their name out without a face. This gives them a chance to meet one-on-one with students.”

The fair itself went very well, as Vangness Frisch said that 15 employers offered students an interview right after it was over.

“This tells us that our students are well equipped and ready for the work force,” she said.

Prairie Business Magazine: Program provides college prep for ND veterans

February 14, 2014 | Janess Sveet

Article from Prairie News, Prairie Business Magazine

North Dakota State University’s veterans education training program, the University of Mary in Bismarck, N.D., Minot State University and the North Dakota State College of Science are collaborating to expand online preparatory services for veterans. The program, launched in January, allows veterans to visit those campuses and participate in online preparatory courses. The online precollege courses can also be accessed remotely for those who prefer to participate off-campus.

Jeri Vaudrin, NDSU’s veterans education training coordinator, says approximately one-third of the state’s approximately 56,000 veterans enrolled in higher education classes in recent years, but only 20 percent earned a degree. The preparatory program was funded during the 2013 state legislative session as an attempt to help veterans meet their educational goals.

The program is expected to be expanded to additional sites in the future. For more information, visit ndsu.edu/trio/vet.
