NSU president gets used to new job, wife


ABERDEEN, S.D. - The new Northern State University president is getting used to a different kind of life.

Patrick Schloss, who was named president of Northern State University in March, started his new job Tuesday, four days after getting married.

His wife, Maureen Smith-Schloss, will be an associate professor in the university's education department.

"There are a lot of changes for me - good changes," the new president said.

Schloss was previously been married for 30 years to a woman who died of cancer a year and a half ago.


Schloss and his first wife were colleagues with Smith-Schloss for more than 20 years. She is the godmother of Schloss's youngest daughter.

He worked at a college in Bloomsburg, Penn. before becoming president of Northern State.
