Hello! I'm Patti Beck. I received my BS in Music Education from Dakota State University (actually, it was still Dakota State "College" way back then). While a student here, I was involved in Student Senate and several music theater productions, including “Chicago” and “The Robber Bridegroom”, as rehearsal accompanist and Musical Director.  I’m the proud mom of two great kids, ages 25 and 21.  Some of my interests include attending concerts, (especially bluegrass, jazz, and blues), camping, gardening, and watching movies (my favorites include "Shaun of the Dead", "A Mighty Wind", and “O Brother, Where Out Thou?” (and anything else written or directed by the Coen Brothers).  I love  working with DSU students, and look forwarding to meeting you.

I have worked at DSU since August, 2000. I am married to Peggy, and we have four sons.  You will often see me walking about campus with a black Labrador retriever named Mercury.  Mercury is my guide dog.

I grew up in the wonderful state of Indiana and am proud to be a Hoosier! In my spare time I like to watch the Chicago Cubs, the Minnesota Vikings, the Indianapolis Colts, and the Chicago Blackhawks. I also like to read books by Joel Rosenberg, John Grisham, Brad Thor, and Vince Flynn.  I am also the pastor of First Baptist Church of Madison.

I have been at DSU since July 2000. I was born and raised in Michigan and have lived in South Dakota since November 1996. I have been married to my husband Tony for almost 30 years. I love pets and have a "too smart" dog "Mattie" and two cats. I have 3 children and 7 grandchildren.  I am a die-hard Bronco's fan. In my spare time I love to watch TV Reality shows, read mystery novels and “treasure”  hunt at flea markets, yard sales and second hand stores.
