More Than a Meal: How NDSU is Fighting Hunger Near and Far
Watch the program and support the Food Security Fund

Food insecurity is a global issue — one that impacts some students at NDSU. In a fall 2019 survey conducted by Meghan Yerhot, NDSU doctoral student and food pantry coordinator, 38% of NDSU students reported not having enough or adequate food, an issue that can affect students' grades as well as their mental and physical health.

You can watch the program now and make your gift to the NDSU Food Security Fund by visiting the event page.

Philanthropy in Action
Student programs inspire engineering major to stay local

Cameron Dahlin was drawn to NDSU because of its reputable engineering program and the breadth of opportunities it offers in both academics and extracurriculars. As a recipient of multiple NDSU scholarships, Cameron has been able to fully dedicate his time and attention to his studies and campus organizations such as Engineers Without Borders, Engineering Ambassadors, GeoWall, NDSU Cru, and intramural sports. The valuable experiences he's gained in the classroom and beyond have encouraged him to stay in Fargo-Moorhead after graduation and lend his skills and talents to build a brighter future for his community.

"Early on in my college career, NDSU helped to solidify my decision to study civil engineering. Throughout my time as a CE student, I have been exposed to the F-M job market that is incredibly supportive of NDSU graduates. Attending NDSU has convinced me that I would love to spend time contributing to projects that improve the landscape, infrastructure, and quality of life of the area."
- Cameron Dahlin '22, civil engineering
