Students from the following Montana hometowns were among the 2,573 Montana State University undergraduates who received diplomas during MSU's 113th commencement ceremonies held May 9 in Brick Breeden Fieldhouse.

MSU President Geoff Gamble, who recently announced his retirement, delivered the charge to the graduates. Carole Falcon-Chandler, president of Montana's Fort Belknap Tribal College, and George Keremedjiev, founder and director of the American Computer Museum in Bozeman, received MSU honorary doctorates during the ceremony.

Those receiving MSU undergraduate degrees included 2008 summer and winter graduates and 2009 spring graduates.

Students with two asterisks after their name (**) graduated with highest honors. To graduate with highest honors, undergraduate students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.70. 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.
