2016 Minnesota Vikings Game Day Intern Finalists Named

Congratulations to Kassi Kommes, Ashley Lemke, and Janice Timmerman for being named as finalists for the 2016 Minnesota Vikings Game Day Internship Program. Finalists will be interviewed by the Vikings PR Staff later this month. Those selected will work in the press box this fall and assist members of the local and national media attending and covering home games, plus any home postseason contests. These internships provide an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to the National Football League and professional sports, to learn about the public relations field, and to network with members of the Vikings front office and the media. 

New Wind Chimes on Campus
If you notice the new sounds of wind chimes near doors at various locations across campus, know they are there to be sound markers for our students on campus who are blind or visually impaired. We ask everyone to help support efforts to assist these students with independent mobility by not touching or attempting to move the chimes. Thank you!
