Catapalooza is a two day festival that welcomes new and returning students to MSU. Catapalooza corresponds with our final summer orientation and move-in day. Over 2500 first year students, returning students, and parents will be at MSU preparing for the new school year.

The registration deadline for organizations, departments, and businesses from campus and the community can register for a booth space is Wednesday, August 6, 2014. This is an excellent way to showcase your services, products, and student organization to our newest Bobcats! There is no cost to participate or to attend Catapalooza. The first 80 on campus departments and clubs are provided a table and two chairs. Off campus groups are always asked to bring their own setup for their free 11' x 10' spot.

This year's festival will include live music and entertainment, free food, giveaways, prizes, and fun activities. Catapalooza is presented to you by the Office of Activities and Engagement and the Dean of Students Office.

IMPORTANT: Catapalooza will be outdoors, rain or shine so please plan accordingly and bring the proper equipment; we do allow tents as long as they are NOT staked into the ground. All tents must be secured with cinder blocks or sandbags.

** There is NOT a centralized source of power on the MSU Centennial Mall, therefore power is approved ONLY in very special and select circumstances.  Please make other arrangements, such as extra batteries for your lap top computer.  For more information about frequently asked questions, please refer to the Catapalooza website here:
