Dear Bobcat Parent and Family Members,

I am happy to report that students have safely returned to Bozeman after Spring Break, some of whom traveled internationally during their time away from campus. I am especially proud of the 32 students who participated in the BreaksAway program, serving in four communities outside of Montana, and for Habit for Humanity right here in Bozeman.

I hope your student enjoyed some down time and caught up on sleep during the break, as the next six weeks are the busiest of the academic year. A few reminders:

o Fall Registration: Priority registration for classes for Fall 2019 starts now. Ask your student if they've made an appointment with their academic advisor and when they plan to register for next fall. Visit the Office of the Registrar for additional information.
o Summer Session: Has your student considered staying in Bozeman for a class or two this summer? It's a great way to catch up or get ahead with their academic requirements. Visit the Bobcat 4x4 website to learn more.
o Off-campus housing: If you missed the webinar for parents and your student couldn't make it to the Off-Campus Living Resource Fair, check out our new Off-Campus Living Guide posted on the Parent & Family Website.

And finally, an update on the Fitness Center: Staff members have been working throughout Spring Break to restore activities and services provided by our Fitness Center. Classes have been relocated, and students enrolled in those activity courses have been notified of the changes. Additionally, fitness equipment has been relocated so that it will be available for use for the remainder of the semester. Details of these changes and restored services are posted on the Recreational Sports and Fitness website, and all students have been emailed this information.

P.S. Please encourage your student to attend the 44th annual Powwow this weekend. It's an incredible way to learn more about the Native American tribal cultures in our region.
