This weekend will mark a milestone in the lives of many young adults in Fargo-Moorhead: College Graduation! The city will be glowing with proud parents and excited graduates who are ready to take a leap into their next adventure in life. Undergraduates are relieved to have another school year over, and while some will move away from the area until Fall Semester, many will stick around and enjoy the fantastic summer entertainment Fargo-Moorhead has to offer.
Students living near NDSU campus are just blocks away from the summer kick-off party at the Fargodome called Rib Fest. They also can take advantage of many Red Hawks games at Newman outdoor field, just across the street from the student high-rise dorms. Concert line-ups with the Red River Valley Fair give the young adults in Fargo-Moorhead something to look forward to in July. But between great events, weekends at the lake, and summer jobs, the college students keep the city alive! The beautiful summer weather makes shopping, eating and playing downtown even more enjoyable for them, as many downtown business owners rely on college students to keep their doors open. With the college population in Fargo-Moorhead being 25,000 strong, this community can always count an innovative culture and a nightlife that is lively and diverse. Congratulations college graduates! If you aren’t making Fargo-Moorhead your permanent address, I know you’ll visit often because when you’re not here, you know you’re missing out!
