August: Osage County

The Department of Theatre will present August: Osage County at 7:30 p.m. October 9-11 and at 2:30 p.m. on October 12. This darkly comedic play takes a look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Oklahoma house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. Cast includes alumni Shawn Duthie (’96), Paul Jefferson (’77), Laura Jefferson (’80) and a number of MSU theatre majors. Additional information may be found by clicking on theater production schedule. For ticket information, call (940) 397-4399 or 397-4393 (box office).

Criminal Justice Program cited for Affordability

The MSU Criminal Justice program was recently named to the top 30 accredited programs by the website Top Criminal Justice Degrees. The site places MSU at No. 15 with an average yearly tuition of $9,615. Dr. Nathan Moran, chair of MSU’s program, said that the university’s program is known globally as faculty members have worked with criminal justice systems of 122 countries. “We have been very aggressive in our growth, while focusing on keeping costs low and building a tradition of academic excellence equivalent to the best criminal justice programs the world over,” he said.

Presidential Search Underway

As we begin the search for our next president, the Presidential Search Advisory Committee and the Board of Regents are committed to keeping the campus informed about each step in the process. Recently, consultants from Academic Search spent two days visiting with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community members about the search. Approximately 180 individuals participated in town hall meetings to discuss the search process and to comment on the characteristics they would like to see in the next president. 

One of the themes emerging from these meetings was the need to provide transparency in the search process. We are committed to doing so, even as we provide confidentiality to candidates until they are invited for a campus visit next spring.
