Accomplished Alumni

  • Chad Geisinger

    For Chad Geisinger, his time at Dakota College at Bottineau was the perfect launching pad for an educational path he never thought he’d pursue. Now on his way to earn a master’s degree to practice as an acute care nurse practitioner, Geisinger didn’t always know that’s what he wanted to do. Thankfully, the two-year Associate Degree in Nursing program at DCB set him up for success.

    “I wanted to go to a smaller place to knock out my general ed requirements,” said Geisinger. “I was a little uncertain about what I wanted to do. I thought I’d start and go from there.”

  • Chloe Burt

    Chloe Burt, 2022 Liberal Arts Associate in Science graduate is finding success in a transfer program from Dakota College. Chloe is very grateful for the experiences which made great memories of her time on campus. One of her favorite experiences is playing goal for the Ladyjack hockey team during its inaugural season. The team made it to the 2022 American Collegiate Hockey Association D2 National Championship tournament in St Louis, Missouri, where they were first runners-up. It is an amazing achievement for a brand-new athletic program.

  • Lacey Grade

    Lacey Grade always knew she wanted to be a photographer, but it took a push from her grandmother to set her in the right direction. She got the education she needed for her career through the photography program at Dakota College at Bottineau (DCB), but not before a brief detour.

    “I started taking photos back in the early 2000s, when I was in elementary school in Spring Creek, Nevada,” said Lacey. “I signed up for an after-school photo club and used a Fujifilm Quicksnap disposable camera. You could buy those everywhere, and you’d just point, shoot, and hope for the best.”
