Moorhead State University students, staff and supporters can now show their allegiance via their number plates, issued by the Department of Transport.
The University's new number plates depicts their beloved mascot, the beaver, and is personalised with the message "F2014" meaning Forward 2014, which is the state university's long-term plan for growth.
University employee, Jane Davies, has number plates with the message "Ltalk" short for MSU's promotional message "Listen and Talk".
About 75 people have now signed up for the number plates, said Stacey Rose, who is managing the sale of the plates on behalf of the university.
Rose said other state university's were also having their own personalised number plate schemes to raise money for their respective institutions. The Department of Transport requires that at least 65 people order the number plates and that a down payment is given.
The cost of the number plates are $30 per year, with $19 of that fee going to the university and $11 going to the Department of Transport. A personalised number plate costs another $25 annually.
"People want to show support and pride pride in the university," said Rose "It's also a good way to start a conversation."
Laurence and Pauline Bright said they think the number plates are a really good idea.
"If it raises money and helps the university it's a win-win situation" said Laurence Bright.
David Thompson, a graduate of the university and now living in Nelson, is happy to have the number plates because of his pride in having attended the university.
Rose said the number plates are available to the general public and more information is available from the Department of Transport.
Earnings from the number plates will be used to help fund scholarships at the university and invest in equipment.
