MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — In 2013, Bailey Nedens was a Hardin High School senior still not quite sure where she would pursue her college degree when she attended a Preview Day event at Montana State University Billings.

 

It was her first time visiting campus.

 

“I was pretty sure I was going to come to MSUB but that visit solidified my choice,” Nedens said.

 

On Friday, October 14, prospective MSUB students will have an opportunity to visit the campus during the first Preview Day, hosted by New Student Services with the help of the Jacket Student Ambassadors (JSA).

 

Preview Day events will take place on both the University and City College campuses.

 

Today, Nedens is a history major, a member of the Jacket Student Ambassadors, and will be on volunteering during Preview Day as she has for several years. 

 

“My favorite part is socializing with the kids,” she said. “We get to sit down and have lunch in the cafeteria and they always have questions about the food.”

 

Nedens said she feels good reassuring high school students curious about campus life that college isn’t so scary.

 

Preview Day is all about having a chance to glimpse into the day in the life of a MSUB student. There will be tours of campus, chances to meet and talk with current students, faculty and staff, break-out sessions on how to apply for admission, financial aid and scholarship information.

 

“Preview Day is a really good opportunity to meet faculty and staff on-campus and other potential students going through the exact process,” said Madeline Felts, New Student Services associate director.

 

Lunch will be provided free of charge at Rimrock Café and parking will also be provided in the garage on Poly Avenue.

 

Additionally, current high school seniors who apply for admission to MSUB will be entered into a drawing to win a $500 MSUB scholarship!

 

If you can’t attend Friday’s Preview Day, MSUB will be hosting additional events in the coming months. Please register here.
