Careers in emergency medicine are growing in popularity and demand. Dakota College at Bottineau in collaboration with Trinity Health-First Response Ground of Minot has accepted nine students to the Paramedic Technology program this spring. The Paramedic Technology program is for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) who want to advance the level of care they can provide. Students applying to the Paramedic Program must have successfully completed the EMT-Basic Certification, hold a current BLS CPR certification and complete all necessary requirements for acceptance prior to being admitted into the Dakota College Paramedic Technology program.
May is always a busy month for the city of Bottineau, and it is no different for the Horticulture Department at Dakota College. Not only are they getting ready for graduation, but they are also finishing the semester, getting ready for their annual plant sale, and hiring summer workers while managing the greenhouse and campus high tunnels and gardens. This last semester was one for the history books. There was a record number of snow days where classes were canceled due to the weather. There was also a damaging storm that swept through the state in April and damaged all of the high tunnels on campus as well as some trees.
