An Awesome Summer Read

Laying outside and reading a great book is one of the best things about summertime. And if you’re like me and have already finished the Twilight series, you are looking for the next great read. Well, your search ends here! “Double Take”, written by MSU graduate Kevin Connolly, is a memoir telling of his life and travels around the world. Kevin offers a one of a kind prospective as he was born without legs and has always been “an object of curiosity”. His story is not only inspiring but astonishing in how it will make you take a look at how you view yourself and others.
Double Take” will be the point of discussion at the 2010 Freshman Convocation on September 8th. All first year students are highly encouraged to attend Freshman Convocation as it is the perfect welcome to our new students. Kevin Connolly and President Cruzado will be there to greet our new Bobcats. So, start your next great read! And if you just so happen to be a part of MSU’s class of 2014, get ready for an intriguing presentation by Kevin on September 8th!

Congratulations MSU Class of 2010!!

Imagine how shocked I was today to see a packed Student Union Building on the last day of finals week! Students are busy packing all of their things out of the residence halls and loading up their cars to head home for the summer, or move into their summer appartment. On a trip to North Hedges yesterday, I also noticed that the Residence Halls were being "green" and having students donate items they didn't want to take home with them instead of throwing them in the trash. Students and community members can take any of these items for FREE. Now that is within the college student budget!

It has been a busy year, and this weekend will be no exception! Students are showing their families around the campus on this sunny Bozeman day. Of course, they are making the obligatory stop to the MSU Bookstore to load up on MSU gear before they head home! MSU will graduate nearly 2,600 students on Saturday, May 8 at 10am and this will be our 114th Commemcement.
