It might well hit 70 this weekend in North Dakotaland ushering in spring as surely as the start of baseballing seasons, the India Premier League, and the return of Formula 1. It also brings distracted students, exhausted faculty, swarms of deadlines, and summer planning. Good times!
We should also remember that yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entering World War I. Go read Richard Rothaus’s blog post and then download our book exploring University of North Dakota and the Great War.
