“We are pleased and grateful to welcome these new freshmen to our growing University of Mary family, and are proud to have them participate in the innovative, values-based learning experience that distinguishes a Mary education,” says President Monsignor James Shea.

“Our programs prepare students to be competent, courageous, ethical  
leaders in their professions and their communities. The university’s setting in the thriving North Dakota capital of Bismarck offers abundant opportunities for students to complement their academics with hands-on experience and network with businesses and organizations. The joy and perspective they gain and relationships they establish will benefit them for a lifetime.”

Mr. Scott, a graduate of Notre Dame Prepatory, is active in baseball, football, Dog Pound and Kairos Retreat. He is the rector at Kairos Retreat.

He plans to major in mass communication with a minor in psychology and play baseball for the Marauders while attending the University of Mary. He is the son of Darryl and Elizabeth Scott of Scottsdale.

Founded in 1959 by the Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery, Mary offers nearly 60 undergraduate, and 14 master’s degrees, and three doctoral programs in Education, Nursing Practice, and Physical Therapy.
