“Metropolitan State University is hosting a 10-hour “Lecturepalooza” for its second year in Give to the Max Day. Last year it raised $11,000 with no in-person fanfare. This year the schools is aiming for at least $12,000, because a donor has agreed to match the money if it reaches that threshold.

Lecture topics will range from community development to how to camp in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.

“We don’t have puppies here, but we do have world-class faculty and a wildly diverse range of expertise,” said Kristine Hansen, Metro State’s alumni relations and annual fund director.”
