Students from the following hometowns were among the more than 1,000 Montana State University undergraduates who received diplomas during MSU's 2013 fall commencement ceremonies held Dec. 14 in Brick Breeden Fieldhouse.

Philip Aaberg, the Chester native who rose from Montana Hi-Line roots to international prominence as a keyboardist, composer and musician with some of the world's most iconic bands, received an honorary doctorate in music. Aaberg also delivered the charge to the graduates and performed on the piano.

Undergraduate students graduating with honors have a single asterisk (*) after their name. To qualify for graduation with honors, students must possess a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 to 3.69.
