Montana State University We are extremely excited to announce that THREE #MontanaState students received the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship! Brigit Noon from Fairbanks, Alaska, Anna Scott from Los Alamos, N.M., and Riley Shearer from Lake Oswego, Ore., each received the scholarship, which gives each student up to $7,500 a year for tuition, fees, books, and room and board. MSU has now produced 64 Goldwater scholars, keeping the university one of the nation’s top institutions for number of recipients. Way to go Brigit, Anna and Riley! We're so proud of your achievements!

Ryan Arthur Vann "After graduating from MSU, Shearer is interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or economics." Chuckled a bit at that one. "Hey, what are your plans after graduation?" "I don't know, I might get into biomedical engineering, maybe get an NSF grant or two and develop life saving devices, or, you know, economics. I do love me some SPSS and regression modelling."13 hours ago

  • 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.
