Cathy Rash Used to very fun place when it was just a smaller cowtown.. everybody said HI, everybody waved and were polite. Now you get the finger, honks, beggars, pushers, and really smelly "naturals" and the traffic,, ignorant, self important-- On the good side- great airport, some good places to eat, and the Arts.

  • Welcome to Montana State University. Enjoy a short preview slideshow of some of our favorite traditions.

  • Catapalooza is a three day festival on Centennial Mall, the main walkway through campus, to welcome new and returning students to campus.

  • The "M" - built by students in 1916 - is not only a monument of school spirit; it's also one of the area's most popular hiking destinations.

  • Bobcat Fest is a celebration of graduating seniors on Main Street each April that features a live band, free food, and other giveaways.

  • Move-In Day is when volunteers from campus and the community show up to welcome new students and help them move into the residence halls.

  • Blue & Gold Fridays are just that. Every Friday, everyone wears Blue and Gold gear to show their school pride. Go CATS!

  • Cat/Griz is one of the longest standing football rivalries in the country. Each November, the Cats go head to head with the Grizzlies of UM.

  • Undie Run is when students show their Bobcat pride by peeling down to their blue and gold bloomers to run a spirited lap around campus.

  • Gold Rush marks the first home football game of the season and Bobcat fans "fill the stadium with gold" to help kick off the season.
