Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - A rare opportunity on the campus of MSUM Friday: MSUM's four living presidents came together and shared amazing stories of their time on the campus.

John Neumaier, in his 90's, served from 1958 to 1968. Roland Dille was president from 1968 to 1994. Roland Barden; 1994 to 2008, and Edna Szymanksi who has been president of MSUM since 2008.

All served in challenging times: Budget woes, the Vietnam War era and Civil Rights unrest.

All agreed that MSUM and other state universities are finally getting the support after years of battling for funding equality.

Roland Dille- MSUM President- 1968-1994: “Eleven people who worked for me went on to be presidents. We were kind of a kindergarten.”

The four are here as part of MSUM's homecoming.
