Favorite thing to do in Bozeman:

My two favorite things to do in Bozeman are take advantage of the outdoor activities and spending time in downtown Bozeman. I’m not a skier, but love to fish, hike and kayak which you can’t go wrong with in the Bozeman area! I also enjoy spending time in downtown Bozeman as it feels like a small town community with a ton of a different restaurants, shops and events. No matter what you enjoy doing, Bozeman has something to offer!

Best college memory:

My favorite college memory is going to the football games with my roommates. The six of us would go to every game each Saturday and loved seeing all the Blue and Gold around the stadium. Even if you’re not a fan of sports, going to the games and supporting the student-athletes is a blast!

Words of wisdom:

Don’t be afraid to explore something new. Whether it’s academically, an outdoor activity you’ve never tried, saying hello to a random student or joining a club, try something different. College is all about trying new things and MSU offers a ton of opportunities for exploration. Take advantage of those opportunities to find a new interest!
