On June 30, 2010 a hail storm in Bozeman dropped 1½ inch diameter hail on the MSU Campus. The damage from the storm was widespread, impacting 270 buildings, and included broken windows, damaged screens, broken skylights, damaged roofs and damaged building siding. Total costs to repair the damage are estimated at $8 million. Repair work took three construction seasons (2010, 2011, 2012) involving on campus and off campus architects, consultants, project managers, trades people, and contractors.
