Our place

Bozeman, Montana

There's a reason Bozeman is considered a "dream town" and lauded by many for offering high quality of life. When you fly in over the Bridger Range or drive into the Gallatin Valley and find yourself surrounded by mountains, it's easy to understand why people want to live, work and play here. Add the cultural amenities of a local symphony and museums, the vibrancy of a college community and an energetic downtown, Bozeman is the complete package. Learn more.

Plan your visit

The MSU Office of Admissions offers many different options for visiting and exploring MSU. Many prospective students and their families choose to visit during MSU Friday, which offers an in-depth preview of college life at Montana State University. MSU Friday events are typically held in October, January and March. Our engineering ambassadors are here to give tours and answer questions.
