Visiting Montana State University

By Mark D. Roberts | Thursday, August 27, 2009

Last week I visited Montana State University along with my son. He is interested in attending film school for college, and Montana State has a well-regarded program in film, television, and theatre. Not surprisingly, one of the most attractive features of Montana State is its location in Bozeman, a delightful town with fantastic winter sports opportunities nearby. The folks at the university were friendly and informative, and we left with an overall positive impression.

I did notice a couple of fun signs on campus, and thought I’d share them with you.  The first was in one of the dorms. It gets right down to business.

The second sign appeared on the doors of the student center. Notice especially the final prohibition.

It’s good to know that there won’t be any grizzly bears in the student center. (Or, perhaps, folks from the University of Montana, who are known as the Grizzlies.) At any rate, you’ve got to appreciate a college administration with a sense of humor.

    During my college years, I worked at a motel in West Yellowstone as a “laundry dog.” On days off co-workers and I would drive 90 miles one way to Bozeman to go to the movies. Bozeman was THE happening place (relatively).

    As for the no spitting rule, I’m certain it is related to the fact that Skoal clogs pipes.

    We visited Montana State with our daughter and enjoyed many of the same area views and the campus. She eventually picked Humboldt State, an equally scenic area and in state tuition and is in her first week of classes. We have also enjoyed backpacking in the Sierra’s similar to your pictures and adventures.

    A nice bike ride from MSU is up to Hyalite Resevoir.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
