Minot State Dome Renovation

Minot State Dome Renovation


It may be summer break, but there’s still
a lot of noise on the campus of Minot State University. A 2.3 million dollar project at the MSU Dome
will replace lower level seating, and open up the second level. It’s a project 10 years in the making, at
a facility where many memories have been made. “The largest event that I recall was in the
mid-80’s, when Newburg High School was in the State Class B Basketball State Championship. The place was packed, there was standing room
only. It was very electric. They were hanging over these edges.” “Growing up we’d come here for Class B basketball
which is a huge event fills the venue up. That was always a fun event to come to. Again, we had high school science competitions
that I participated in up here, they’ve been doing that for many years at the dome. The dome is 37 years old and so I’ve been
coming to events here for 37 years.” While the renovation will help keep big events
at the venue, MSU says bigger changes could be on the horizon. “The seating is one thing, but being able
to knock out those walls and possibly do somethings with suites eventually because of that. That’s not part of this initial project, but
there’s some other neat things, that that’s going to allow us to do.” Students and spectators will cheer on the
Beavers Men’s and Women’s teams in the updated facility this fall, thanks to support from
community partners. “First International has been a huge partner
for us on a lot of different projects, not just athletics but across our campus. This project wouldn’t get done without that
support.” “We as an institution as a bank, employees
in the bank, and the community, can be extremely proud of the renewed atmosphere that this
venue will bring.”
