Good Neighbor Committee
The Good Neighbor Committee (GNC) is a collaborative effort between Montana State University, the City of Bozeman and other community partners. Our focus is promoting positive neighborly behaviors and encouraging engagement between community residents and students.
Public Service Announcements
The Good Neighbor Committee, with help from KGLT, produced several public service announcements featuring recognizeable Bozeman residents. The PSA's encourage positive neighborly behaviors.
- Ellie Staley - Downtown Bozeman Association
- Charlie Gappmeyer - Bozeman Police Department
- Lindsay Murdoch - Associated Students of Montana State University
- Chris Mehl - City of Bozeman Commissioner
Good Neighbor Door hangers
The Good Neighbor Committee facilitates three annual "good neighbor" door hanger campaigns. Door hangers are delivered to neighborhoods that have been identified as having a high concentration of students living among full time residents. The door hangers include information about city code compliance topics such as parking regulations, snow shoveling and proper disposal of unwanted household items. Other topics covered include using the Streamline bus service, MSU's code of conduct for students, informing neighbors of party plans, campus winter parking information, fire safety and more. We want to thank local businesses including Joe's Parkway Market and Starbucks for providing tear off coupons for the door hangers.
Parent Off Campus Living Webinar
Each year, the GNC in cooperation with the Parent/Family Association and the Dean of Students Office presents a webinar to parents of freshman that are eligible to move off campus the following academic year. The webinar covers topics such as finding and securing off campus housing, reading a lease, do's and don'ts of leasing and maintaining an off campus home or apartment, tips on finding a good roommate, sophomore and above on campus housing options, fire safety, hoe the code of conduct applies off campus and MSU and Bozeman Police departments tips on being a good neighbor.
