Spring Campus Visits

While you are on spring break, consider making a trip to Bozeman and visiting campus! MSU has been seeing many visitors over the last few weeks, and you can arrange your visit by calling 888-MSU-CATS.

There are many things to do when visiting MSU's campus. Check out our visit website for full details.

MSU offers two campus tours Monday - Friday at 9am and 2pm. We also offer a tour of the residence halls at 11am, which will take you into 3-4 residence halls rooms across campus. Other optional tours include our newly rennovated fitness center at noon and a 12:30pm Outdoor Recreation Center tour. The ORC rents outdoor equipment to students for a very low cost!

Along with all of these daily tours, we can also arrange meetings for you with academic departments, financial aid, the University Honors Program and many more. Just call 888-MSU-CATS and we will arrange your day!

Big couple of weekends in Bobcat Athletics

The last couple of weekends have provided Bobcat fans plenty to cheer about with Bobcat Athletics and there is still plenty more to come with big basketball games this weekend.

Tomorrow night at our own Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, the Bobcat Men will host Portland State in the quarterfinal playoff matchup. The Cats locked up the three seed after traveling to Missoula and defeating UM in the final regular season Cat/Griz matchup. Because the game tomorrow is a playoff game, no tickets are given away to students, however, thanks to huge support from local company Harrington's Pepsi, 200 tickets were purchased to give away to our student body. Tickets are going fast and hopefully it will be another great weekend to be a Bobcat...actually every day is a great day to be a Bobcat!

Our Bobcat Women have also locked up a post season birth as well and finish up the regular season tomorrow night against Northern Arizona on the road. Last weekend, they started the sweep over our rival UM with a great road victory! They dropped a heartbreaker last night to Northern Colorado by 2, but I have confidence they'll rebound tomorrow...pun intended!

Last weekend also saw the 2010 Big Sky Conference Indoor Track and Field Championship hosted by Montana State University at the Brick. The MSU Men took second and the Women took fifth with 20 student-athletes earning medals! Junior Asa Staven earned the honor of being Field Athlete of the Meet which is voted on by the coaches from around the conference.

Congrats to all of our student-athletes for making MSU proud with their performances in and out of the classroom! Go Cats!

Heading to Seattle & Portland!

I will be leaving for Seattle/Portland tomorrow and will be busy at college fairs and visiting high schools. If you live in the Seattle/Portland area and I am not visiting your high school, I will also be hosting a few pizza parties in Bellevue, Tacoma and Portland.

Pizza parties are a fun way to learn a lot more about MSU! Usually 20 - 40 students and families attend pizza parties and there is a presentation about academics, campus life, admission requirements and of course scholarship opportunities. Check out my complete schedule to see if I will be in your area! I would enjoy the opportunity to talk to you about MSU!
