Building a Career in Fargo-Moorhead

"Fargo-Moorhead was at the beginning of its transformation when I graduated. It was great to stay here, but a lot of my classmates moved away. Fargo is a fantastic place to build a career and live a life. There have been more opportunities for people to experience their own things within the F-M area."
– Camille Weber Grade ’04, Chief Market Officer, Bushel
