Shaping the problem solvers and leaders of tomorrow.
You call Montana home. You graduated from a Montana high school and that experience – whether you were one of 5 or 500 students – left you with deep roots and great affection for your home community. That’s why, when it came time to pursue your degree, you chose to stay in the state you love and attend Montana State University.
Today, you are at least halfway to earning your degree. The graduation finish line is right there in front of you– you can envision the date, the ceremony, the pride in your immense accomplishment. Yet, between now and then, there are unknowns to discover, answers you seek, and plans to make.
This is the time when many college students are asking themselves:
How do I use my degree to create a career with purpose?
What is my plan for paying off my student debt?
How do I feel more connected to fellow students and the MSU community?
How do I achieve my target GPA while staying resilient and focused?
How do I learn from others and create a professional network?
