The one experience students shouldn’t miss?

This would definitely be the first week of school! There are so many fun activities that are put on during that week. It is a great way to meet new people and get to know the campus.


What is one of your favorite places in Billings?

I really enjoy spending time up on the Rimrocks. There is a hiking spot up there called Indian Cliffs where you can spend all day just exploring!


What do you love most about MSUB?

I love that both the faculty and students are really friendly. This was a major part in my positive experience at MSUB.


My best advice to future Yellowjackets would be?

Try to get involved as much as you can! Being involved in activities can not only help you meet people, but can also make your college experience more enjoyable and memorable.
