Volunteers are sought for the 13th annual Montana State University Move-In Day, set Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Volunteers from both MSU and the community will help move an expected 1,700 new students into their residence halls. Volunteers will have a choice of one of three shifts, which are each 2 1/4 hours long: 8:45 a.m.-11 a.m.; 10:45 a.m.-1 p.m.; or 12:45 p.m.-3 p.m. Volunteers new to the event receive a free MSU vest.

Members of the community who would like to volunteer for the student welcome event may call the MSU President's Office, 994-2341, by Friday, Aug. 9.

The community also is invited to attend Catapalooza, another MSU annual event that kicks off the beginning of the school year and also begins on Move-In Day.

Catapalooza, a three-day, fair-like event for new and returning MSU students, will be held from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.  Aug 21-23 on the university's Centennial Mall.  More than 300 clubs, organizations, and businesses participate in Catapalooza, offering music, entertainment, food and give-away items. Groups from the community and campus have until Aug. 9 to register for a booth where goods, services and products can be displayed. For more information about Catapalooza, visit the Web site or contact Robin Mayer in the Office of Activities and Engagement at, or 994-2837.
