Bobcat Batter Ice Cream
Thanks to Livingston based Wilcoxson’s Ice Cream, Bobcat Spirit is now available at your local grocery store. Bobcat Batter features a cake batter ice cream with a blue frosting wave. The partnership began in MSU’s Miller Dining Hall as part of the Made in Montana Program. At the time, the new ice cream flavor didn’t have a name, so the university sponsored a community-wide naming contest.
Matt Schaeffer, president of Livingston-based Wilcoxson’s Ice Cream, said he is proud of the partnership that has been developed between his company and MSU. “I feel privileged to be a part of this,” Schaeffer said. “I like being associated with MSU. I think it’s a great combination.”

2015 College Colors Day Challenge
As part of the 11th annual College Colors Day celebration, MSU is participating in the inaugural College Colors Challenge and encouraging fan support across social media for the Bobcats. The grand prize is a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to the College Football Playoff National Championship game.
The College Colors Challenge is a new socially-fueled national contest celebrating the excitement of college football as the season begins. Through participating in a series of photo and video challenges on social media, fans can flaunt their colors, express their school spirit, and vie for a trip to college football’s title game. The challenges revolve around three categories represented by the hash-tags: #SQUADPIC (large group), #FAMPHOTO (family), and #SELFIE (individual). Some of the challenges include fans posting an epic trick shot video while wearing their colors, an awkward college colors family photo, and college colors displayed at the office.
Bobcat fans are encouraged to download the College Colors app (currently available in both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store) and visit CollegeColorsChallenge.com for full challenge details. The grand prize winner will receive round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, and two tickets to the national championship game in Glendale, AZ, courtesy of CLC and the College Football Playoff.
The College Colors Challenge kicks off on Monday, August 10. Winners for the first set of challenges will be announced via CollegeColorsChallenge.com on College Colors Day, Friday, September 4. Each month during the college football season, three new challenges will be issued for a chance to win exciting prizes, including two more opportunities to win two tickets to the national championship game.

Now Montana State University and Bobcat fans can fly in style.
MSU is one of the newest additions to Horizon Air’s fleet of aircrafts that are university-themed. The MSU plane is painted in blue and gold and displays the bobcat head mark on the tail, the collegiate “M” at the back of the plane, Go Cats text on the wings, and the university logo near the front of the plane.
“This is certainly one of our biggest promotional opportunities to date,” said Julie Kipfer, director of marketing and creative services at Montana State University. “We are excited to increase our exposure and visibility in the Northwest region where many of our students, alumni and fans live and travel.”
The first flight of the freshly painted Q400 Turboprop will be from Seattle to Bozeman on November 30, 2010. After that, the plane will travel on all Horizon routes and may be seen all over the Northwest region.
