Mount Marty prepping for the upcoming fall semester

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- The fall term begins next week at Mount Marty University in Yankton and at their sites in Sioux Falls and Watertown.

President Marc Long says the addition of football is getting a lot of attention.

While the official enrollment will be totaled up around Labor Day, Long is expecting another increase in student numbers.

The university had around one thousand students at its three locations last year.

Long says they have also added another doctoral program.

Long says they will begin the fall term with a face mask optional policy but will closely monitor Covid-19 trends.
