Building a Career in Moorhead

"Moorhead is home to college campuses and has a thriving arts community. Because I went to college in Moorhead and had my first postgrad job here, I spent a lot of time in the city and felt the absence of not having a space to meet with people who had similar interests."
— Sydni Kreps ’17, Founder + Curator of More Than Words Bookshop
