Upcoming spring events you won’t want to miss at NDSU

Campus Attractions provides upcoming events for the 2022 spring semester

As the first few weeks of the second semester begin at NDSU, students are busy with their new classes and activities. But one can only do school work for so long without having a little bit of fun.

That’s why NDSU Campus Attractions has created an eventful calendar for students to participate in for the 2022 spring semester.

Campus Attractions works hard to provide educational, cultural, social and recreational programs and activities through a wide variety of resources. With many unique and entertaining opportunities including but not limited to late night events, hypnotists, concerts, public speakers and free weekly movies, CA brings the campus to life for NDSU students.

Campus Attractions is a student-run programming board that is always trying to add exciting events to the NDSU campus. They are always looking for upbeat, creative and hardworking students to join its outstanding team.
