The annual Move-In Day at Montana State University commences next Wednesday, August 22nd. With the start of a new year, MSU is celebrating an incredible milestone of 125 years of education and growth! In February of 1893, Montana legislature established the Agricultural College of the State of Montana, located in Bozeman. In the first year, only 46 students were enrolled in the college. Growth was slow and in 1905 enrollment finally exceeded 100. Between the years of 1928-1945, enrollment teetered back and forth over the 1,000 mark. Last year (2017), secured another all-time high headcount of 16,703 with the freshmen class being made up evenly of 50% Montana residents (represented by all counties), and 50% non-residents.
