Thank you for your interest in Adventures MSU! Registration opens March 1, space is limited!

Before you begin your journey at MSU, come join us for an exciting three-day experience for incoming freshman only. We’ll be your guide for exploring your new home. You’ll visit many of Bozeman’s prized locales including: the historic Story Mansion, Downtown Bozeman, Rockhaven Camp in Gallatin Canyon and Hyalite Canyon. You’ll traverse a high ropes course, learn teambuilding and leadership skills, hike the Gallatin National Forest, canoe or kayak the Hyalite Reservoir, and much more. In addition, our Learning Strategist will teach you the skills you’ll need to be successful at MSU, all while you earn one academic credit. At Adventures MSU, you will also:

  • Meet new friends
  • Learn the strategies you will need to be successful in the classroom such as note-taking, test-taking, critical thinking and reading, how to communicate with your professors, and career exploration (remember, this is different than high school!)
  • Meet the individuals at MSU who are committed to your success, including your very own Success Advisor and Success Mentor
  • Experience outdoor adventures with your new friends
  • Complete assignments to support your academic success and career plans
  • Complete follow-up small group and personal appointments with your Advisor, reflection exercises, and a supplemental 11Ž2-hour "CheckPoint” class to satisfy your academic requirements
  • Receive support far beyond your first week at MSU
  • Only $379
