MSU's success with out-of-state students a boon for budget, campus growth

August 15, 2017View for printing

Eight hundred incoming freshmen students and parents gathered in Montana State University's ballrooms for a summer orientation session and when an admissions officer asked them to stand and shout out as she named their state, Montana got by far the biggest cheer.

There were also pretty big cheers from California, Colorado, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington state.

Voices were fewer but enthusiastic for Texas, Wyoming, Florida, Idaho, New Jersey, Kansas, New Hampshire, Illinois, Georgia, the Dakotas, Michigan and other states. There was one very loud Alaskan and a lone kid from Singapore.
