Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

World’s largest puzzle at Karl Mundt Library

January 19, 2023

Dakota State University’s Karl Mundt Library is currently working to put together the world’s largest puzzle.

Mary Francis, Interim Director of the Library, first heard about the world’s largest puzzle available for purchase from Costco from fellow DSU employee Vickie Bird.

The conversation inspired Francis to order the puzzle for the Karl Mundt Library after measuring to be sure the library had a wall space to display the 29-foot completed puzzle.

The 60,000-piece puzzle is made up of 60 1,000-piece puzzles that fit together to form the complete image.

Anyone can put together the puzzles on the first floor of the Karl Mundt Library. Putting together the puzzle is a relaxing, social opportunity, Francis shared.

Since receiving the puzzle, Francis has shared videos and images on social media. People can stay updated on the puzzle’s progress by visiting the library’s Facebook page.

Additionally, the public is invited to guess when the puzzle will be completed by visiting a Google form.

“After the puzzle is glued together, we’ll have it flipped over so anyone who worked on it can sign the back,” she said.
