What types of events are allowed on the MSU calendar?

The Montana State University calendar provides information on a variety of campus events including events, people, sports and fitness, classes, exhibits and more. Many events will be applicable to the following MSU Today categories:

  • Events
    Events include public lectures that might draw off-campus audiences. Examples include a lecture by a well-known author, historian or scientist. Jane Goodall's 2008 lecture sponsored by the MSU Leadership Institute is an example. Events differ from Meetings and Presentations by the type of audience and the degree of interest among a non-campus audience.

  • People
    News about new faculty and staff appointments would appear here with a photograph, if we have one. If we do not, the faculty's department must provide one or contract with MSU Marketing and Creative Services for a photo. Click here for guidelines. Honors, awards and other faculty/staff recognitions also fit into this category. Be proud and send us notice of your accomplishments.

  • Recreational Sports and Fitness
    Schedules and information about Recreational Sports and Fitness go in this category. We'll also provide a link to the Intramural Web site. Other recreation information can appear here, such as gym pass costs and opportunities for fitness consultations.

  • Classes
    Classes through the Burns Technology Center and the MSU College of Technology-Bozeman are examples of what this category is for.

  • Exhibits
    These can include either on-campus exhibits or those at the Museum of the Rockies.

  • Philanthropic Solicitations MSU
    MSU Today accepts notices of philanthropic solicitations from MSU organizations. Examples would be the MSU Range Club's holiday tree sale, the MSU Horticulture Club's annual plant sale, the MSU Chapter of EWB selling holiday cards to fund their work in Kenya, etc. MSU Today does not accept philanthropic solicitations from non-MSU entities.
