They cover a broad range of topics, including student life, academic options, the application process, scholarships, and more. Our Student Ambassadors are trained by our Admissions Counselors, and many are active in leadership positions across campus.

AdvoCat Tour Guides

The campus tour program at Montana State University serves thousands of visitors each year. Under the supervision of the program coordinators, Anders Groseth and Holly Hillis, and two student coordinators, MSU AdvoCats promote and personalize the University to prospective students, their families and other guests to campus. Through guided walking tours of campus, MSU AdvoCats educate visitors about academics and campus life, as well as the history, traditions and achievements of the University. The position of an MSU AdvoCat is a volunteer student leadership position. Guided tours last approximately one hour and are offered Monday – Friday at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., year-round (except for University observed holidays).

Orientation Leaders

We are very proud that the success of our Orientation program is due in large part to the quality, ability, and dedication of Student Orientation Leaders. Trained in such areas as communication skills, leadership and presentation of factual information, Orientation Leaders work closely with new freshmen, transfers, and parents. They are knowledgeable about campus activities, campus life and various services offered by the University, and develop close working relationships with MSU administrators and faculty while assisting with academic advising and the registration process.
