Bridging the Campus & Community

Outlook - Bridging the Campus & Community

Twenty-three banners along University Drive (formerly 10th Street) in St. Cloud boldly reinforce feelings of pride in the community’s public university. Seventy smaller banners throughout campus demonstrate the same pride on the part of St. Cloud State’s 17,000 students and 1,780 faculty and staff. Pictured, left to right, are senior history major Shan Sharif of Eau Claire, Wis.; sophomore Kayla Magnan, Brainerd, who is planning a career in the medical field; and junior Jessica Smith, Stillwater, who is working toward degrees in journalism and theater.
