  • Meet Dr. Pat Brace, Professor of Art & Humanities since 1988. Dr. Brace is originally from Meadville, PA and now lives in Tracy, MN.
    What do you like most about working at SMSU? I enjoy the ability to easily interact with students and the collegiality with colleagues that the size of SMSU allows.
    SMSU is unique because: SMSU has such a wide range of different kinds of both students and faculty. Many are first generation college students, but they are also international, non-traditional, athlete scholars, D&D and Anime lovers, farmers and cowboys, veterans, LGBTQ activists, theatre buffs and scientists. In the LEP courses I teach there is usually an eclectic and interesting mix of all of the above, which in and of itself is an education to all the students.
    Hobbies: I do as much study travel for Art History as I can during the summer and school breaks. I have been to all the British Isles, France, Switzerland, Scandinavia, Greece & Italy. Name a major museum or historical site in one of the major cities & I have probably been there! I create beaded jewelry based on the historical designs I find in museum collections or in paintings and on sculptures. I am also an avid reader and writer of fan fiction and enjoy playing in trivia-based competitions.
    People would be surprised to know: I grew up on a small hobby farm in Pennsylvania and was in 4-H with horse, rabbit and public speaking projects. My rabbit, Sir Thumper Bunny, won grand champion French Lop at the Crawford County Fair in 1974. My Hackney-Welsh pony, Star, was a state champion in trail class, in which you have to maneuver through various obstacles.

    You’ll get to know your faculty when you attend SMSU. Visit today and register for fall: www.SMSU.edu/admission Classes begin August 26!

    Hallie has the drive and ambition to take over the family farm, and said her professors within the School of Agriculture are helping her attain that dream. What’s your dream? You can achieve it. SMSU is the place to start. Call to schedule a tour today: 1-800-642-0684.

  • A unique theatre experience highlighting housing instability in the region is coming to Marshall on July 28.

    The zAmya Theatre Project will perform “A Prairie Homeless Companion” on Sunday, July 28 at 7 p.m. in the SMSU Black Box Theatre.

    The performance is free and open to the public.

    What’s it all about? “Live Music! Bad Jokes! And Real Stories!” A long-running outdated radio show produced in the city and about rural Minnesota comes to town and finds a different reality than the one they’ve been describing. The residents of the town take over the show and produce a more appropriate version. “A Prairie Homeless Companion” is both humorous satire and a serious look at housing instability in southwest Minnesota.

    Partnership Art — a program of the Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership — sponsored zAmya Theater from Minneapolis and Placebase Productions from Granite Falls, Minn., to create “A Prairie Homeless Companion.” Story circles were held in four Southwest Minnesota communities: Willmar, Marshall, Hutchinson, and Worthington. Playwright Josef Evans created the script, which was recently shared in staged readings throughout southwest Minnesota with feedback from the readings used for further development. Now the project is ready to be shared in full form with each community.

    zAmya Theatre is led by professional artists and gives jobs to actors who’ve experienced homelessness to create the plays, co-facilitate workshops, and guide the directions of the company. They believe that theatre can change the narrative of homelessness. The stories they tell are created by stories lived by the actors and crafted by the artistic members.

    zAmya is welcoming community members and musicians from the area to also participate in the production. Only one community rehearsal is required. If interested, please email zamyatheaterproject@gmail.com.

  • Let’s meet Dr. LeAnne Syring, Assistant Professor of Special Education. From Hazel Run, MN, she’s been at SMSU for four years. She has both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from SMSU.
    What do you like most about working at SMSU? I enjoy our small class sizes and the ability to get to know each student. I believe that relationships are the basis of success. SMSU is small enough to foster those kinds of relationships with faculty, staff, and students. It feels like home away from home.
    SMSU is unique because: We offer our education programs on campus and online. We are responsive to our students needs and provide numerous in classroom field experience hours. Students are able to put their learning into action immediately to cement that knowledge and grow as an aspiring educator. Our faculty works to be available to our students by mentoring and encouraging their successes. Our education students are sought after as they complete our rigorous and thorough education program.
    Hobbies: Reading, sewing, painting, and spending time with my grandchildren.
    People would be surprised to know: I took at leap of faith attending my first college course at SMSU at the age of 37, stepping through the doorway and taking a seat. I was incredibly nervous and worried that I would not be successful. It turned out to be the best decision of my life and I continue to encourage non-traditional students to step out and step up! You will not regret it, only say "why didn't I do it sooner?"
