  • Had a tour of the campus which included a walkthrough of the Mari Sandoz Heritage Center. The attendant was very energetic and entertaining. They are working on some wonderful improvements. The displays were very interesting and the layout was easy to navigate.
  • Knowledge of Mari by the staff was super. Enthusiasm bubbled from the interpretive staff.
