Montana State University More than 15 years ago, Peter Buerhaus—then a nursing faculty member and health care workforce economist at Vanderbilt University—and his colleagues warned that the United States would face a critical shortage of nurses unless the country took measures to ensure more people entered the profession. The projected shortage estimated at the time amounted to more than 400,000 registered nurses by 2020—large enough to cripple the health care delivery system, leading to the closure of health facilities, long delays obtaining health care, lower quality of care and higher costs. Policymakers took note, especially after other high-profile publications provided new evidence confirming Buerhaus’ predictions. His research helped spur Congress to pass legislation and led to foundations and corporations throughout the country developing national and state-level initiatives and campaigns aimed at promoting nursing as a career.

Montana State University In 1942, John Vachon fell in love with Montana and the American West. Driving his bald-tired Plymouth across the northern plains on assignment for the Farm Security Administration, he traveled the snow-dusted countryside, stopping to photograph country school children playing “fox and geese,” shepherds tending their flocks, and farm women filling oil lamps. Along the way, he also captured the architecture of the plains: snow fences, corn cribs, grain elevators and miles upon miles of empty road. Vachon wrote to his wife, “Once you see this place you cant really Love any other part of the world. Absolutely the best squarest people on the whole goddam earth.”

  • 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.
