Construction of the Biesiot Activities Center

The Biesiot Activities Center (BAC) began as a university, community, and regional effort to create a focal point of pride for athletics in southwest North Dakota. The combined resources, talents, and energies transformed this facility into a state-of-the-art complex for football, track and field, and numerous community and regional events. A team that included both public and private partnerships made this unique facility a reality.
