FARGO -- North Dakota State University has a new word to propose for the dictionary: Joe-mentum.

That was the buzzword Wednesday at a farewell reception for President Joseph Chapman, whose last day is Nov. 30.


About 250 campus and community members gathered at the Memorial Union to shake Chapman's hand and thank him for leading NDSU through a transformation.

Banners signed by supporters read "Thank you for 11 years of leadership and Joe-mentum."
