It's Homecoming! Go Bobcats!

Kick off your homecoming celebrations at Country Bookshelf on Thursday, October 11th at 6pm with professor/librarian James Thull and archivist Heather Hultman to explore the history of Montana State University, Bozeman.

Founded in 1893 in Bozeman, Montana, MSU is the state's land-grant university, with a mission to educate students, create knowledge and art, and serve communities by integrating learning, discovery, and engagement. Over its 125-year history, the university has grown from its original class of eight students to today's more than 16,000 from across the United States and over 70 nations. Sports, MSU's annual American Indian Council Pow Wow, and outdoor recreation facilitate avenues for education, exercise, and entertainment for faculty, staff, and students, creating invaluable experiences that last a lifetime.

The images in this book were taken from several of the library's archival collections. James J. Thull, MA, MLIS, CA, is an associate professor as well as librarian of the Merrill J. Burlingame Special Collections at MSU. Heather C. Hultman, MLIS, CA, is an archival assistant. Join us on Thursday, 10/11 at 6pm to learn more about our local University!
