MSU, the City of Bozeman and the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport at Gallatin Field have partnered to create the new welcome sign in the "meet and greet" area on the second floor of the airport terminal. The mural, featuring images of the Bridger Mountains, "Spirit the Bobcat" statue and students cheering at an MSU football game, greets visitors to the Gallatin Valley with the words, "Montana State University Welcomes You to Bozeman."
"We are proud of our wonderful university, our city and our airport, and we want visitors to know they are welcome in this very special place," said MSU President Waded Cruzado of the project.
"We value our partnership with Montana State University and City of Bozeman," said Brian Sprenger, airport director. "We appreciate MSU's willingness to work with us to enhance the look of our terminal and to welcome visitors to one of the state's busiest airports."
Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport set a passenger record in 2012, with more than 400,000 passengers boarding airline flights through November, according to airport records.
"The City of Bozeman is proud to be a partner with Montana State University and the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in welcoming people from all over the world to our vibrant, growing city," said Chris Kukulski, Bozeman city manager.
