Rochester, MN – August 7th, 2012 – Minnesota School of Business-Rochester campus held its 4th annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7th. The night was a great opportunity for the Rochester community to get to know MSB-Rochester and what our campus has to offer.
Campus tours were conducted by the admissions team to give the general public a glimpse into the world of Minnesota School of Business. Outdoor activities were supervised on a volunteer basis by MSB staff and faculty. Activities included face painting, bounce house, carnival games and bungee run. For adults, Massage Therapy students offered chair massages to guests. Food was provided such as hotdogs, nachos, popcorn and snow cones along with lemonade to quench the thirst of the attendees on the hot August night.
A new addition this year was the Child Safety Clinic where parents could have their children fingerprinted and registered with the Rochester Police Department. The Law and Order Club, made up of Paralegal and Criminal Justice students, ran the clinic.
Dean of Students, Karen Cook said, “Our annual National Night Out event has become a great way to draw the larger Rochester community to our campus along with student, faculty, and staff. There is truly something for everyone.”
National Night Out has proven to be an effective and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit & community partnerships in the fight for a safer community. In the last three years, Minnesota School of Business-Rochester has won the Business and Community Collaborative Award from the National Night Out Organization. This year, the campus was notified that it will be receiving an award at a ceremony held at the Government Center in Rochester on September 5th.
