Founded in 1893 as a Land Grant University, Montana State University (MSU) is
composed of eight academic colleges and a graduate school and boasts a
friendly, supportive faculty and campus environment. Currently, the University
hosts an enrollment of over 15,000 students, including approximately 1,900
graduate students. MSU is classified as one of 108 U.S. Research Universities
(very high research activity) by the Carnegie Foundation.

  
MSU is located in Bozeman, Montana, an extended community of about 70,000
nestled in the Rocky Mountains in Southwest Montana. In addition to providing
access to an extraordinary ecosystem for teaching and research programs,
Bozeman is renowned for year-round recreational and cultural opportunities to
include access to world class ski areas, multiple blue ribbon trout streams
and the Gallatin National Forest. The local airport is served by seven
national airlines with over twenty flights a day to nine cities.

  
Named an All American City, Bozeman boasts high-quality medical facilities, a
very low crime rate, many fine restaurants, acclaimed public and private
schools, a symphony orchestra and choir, an annual opera, and nationally known
events such as the Sweet Pea Festival of the Arts held in early August of each
year. Powder Magazine identified Bozeman, with "three distinctly different"
major ski resorts within an hour's drive, as the number one place to live and
ski in its November 2010 Magazine. Bizjournals.com ranked Bozeman #2 on the
list of American Dreamtowns - small towns that offer the best quality of life
without metropolitan hassles. The K-12 educational system, growing reputation
of Montana State University, and pristine natural environment of the area
combine to make Bozeman one of America's most desirable university towns.
Bozeman is located in the beautiful Gallatin Valley, 90 miles north of
Yellowstone National Park.
