The interim president for North Dakota State University does not plan to live in the house that has been the source of recent controversy.


Richard Hanson said Wednesday that he plans to rent an apartment in Fargo but will use the new president's house for social functions.

"I've been a president for five years, and I know what it means to set up house," said Hanson, who is now president of Waldorf College in Forest City, Iowa. "And I'm not going to do that as an interim."
