Dear MSU Students, 

We want to welcome you to your new home!  MSU Debut is the official beginning of your experience as a Bobcat! During MSU Debut you will have opportunities to connect with other incoming students, returning students, faculty, and staff who are excited to welcome you into the Bobcat community.

We understand that there is a lot of uncertainty during this time due to COVID-19. We want to reassure all of you that we are working very hard to make sure that our events this fall are valuable to a variety of incoming and returning students. Although many of these events may look a bit different, there will still be many opportunities to make connections and find a sense of belonging on campus. 

We are excited to welcome all incoming students to the Bobcat Family and we look forward to you being a part of MSU Debut!

Go Cats!

Chris & Blake 

 

We strive to ensure MSU Debut events are equal and accessible to all. For questions about accessibility or to request accommodations, please contact Disability Services at: 406.994.2824 or visit their WEBSITE for more information.
