Visiting Montana State University

posted by Mark D. Roberts

Last week I visited Montana State University along with my son. He is interested in attending film school for college, and Montana State has a well-regarded program in film, television, and theatre. Not surprisingly, one of the most attractive features of Montana State is its location in Bozeman, a delightful town with fantastic winter sports opportunities nearby. The folks at the university were friendly and informative, and we left with an overall positive impression.
I did notice a couple of fun signs on campus, and thought I’d share them with you.  The first was in one of the dorms. It gets right down to business.

The second sign appeared on the doors of the student center. Notice especially the final prohibition.

It’s good to know that there won’t be any grizzly bears in the student center. (Or, perhaps, folks from the University of Montana, who are known as the Grizzlies.) At any rate, you’ve got to appreciate a college administration with a sense of humor.

During my college years, I worked at a motel in West Yellowstone as a “laundry dog.” On days off co-workers and I would drive 90 miles one way to Bozeman to go to the movies. Bozeman was THE happening place (relatively).
As for the no spitting rule, I’m certain it is related to the fact that Skoal clogs pipes.

We visited Montana State with our daughter and enjoyed many of the same area views and the campus. She eventually picked Humboldt State, an equally scenic area and in state tuition and is in her first week of classes. We have also enjoyed backpacking in the Sierra’s similar to your pictures and adventures.
A nice bike ride from MSU is up to Hyalite Resevoir.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? Conclusions
In this series on the death of Jesus, I have presented four different perspectives on why Jesus had to die: Roman, Jewish, Jesus’, and Early Christian. I believe that each of these points of view has merit, and that we cannot fully understand the necessity of Jesus’ death without taking them all

Sunday Inspiration from the High Calling
Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 2
The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
