Days like Thursday don't come around often at the University of Minnesota Crookston – only five times in all – so there was plenty of pomp and circumstance for the inauguration of Dr. Fred Wood as the fifth chancellor in the campus' history. Dignitaries from across the U of M system and from Wood's previous employer, the University of California, Davis, converged on campus, along with leaders from the
community and region for lunch, the inauguration
ceremony, and a reception. The new student residence, Heritage Hall, was also dedicated.
