BISMARCK (AP) — Bismarck State College is getting two work force training grants.
The state Commerce Department said a grant of about $77,000 will help pay for a new paint booth for BSC’s automotive collision technology program.
Bismarck State College is reporting a record spring enrollment for the third straight year.
School officials said 3,899 students are enrolled this semester, an increase of almost 9 percent from last spring.
BSC’s fall enrollment also was a record, at 4,020 students.
These area Bismarck State College students were named to the president’s honor roll for the fall 2009 semester. Students must maintain at least a 3.50 grade point on a 4.00 scale while enrolled in at least 12 semester hours of classes. Those with a star following their name have a 4.00 grade point average for the semester.
Some choir students at Bismarck State College are getting the chance to play Carnegie Hall in New York City.
The BSC choral department received an invitation from a concert production company to perform next March 19. Students are raising money for the trip.
The students from BSC will perform with choir students from Washington, Wyoming, Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee.
The president of Bismarck State College says about one-fourth of the school’s 4,000 students are enrolled in energy-related programs.
Larry Skogen said that’s a good thing, with a lot of people in the current energy work force getting ready to retire.
