ASMSU fuels your fun with activity fees
The Associated Students of Montana State University (ASMSU) is your student body government. Our mission is to be the voice of students and to provide diverse, student-oriented programs and services through responsible management of student activity fees.
As elected officials, ASMSU executives and senators represent you, the student body. We strive to respond to your needs, concerns, and expectations to make your experience at Montana State an enjoyable one. Each student pays over $85 per semester to ASMSU, amounting to over $2 million annually. So Bobcats, we’ve got your money—over $650 in your four years at MSU (and even more if you really like school)—and I’m here to tell you, we do plenty of really cool stuff with it.
For instance, we have an Outdoor Recreation Program, which offers equipment rental, group outings, instructional classes, a resource center, bicycle and ski workshops, and more. Check out montana.edu/outdoorrecreation for info. We also fund the Leadership Institute (which brings in speakers such as climber Conrad Anker) and the Sustainability Center, which runs the campus recycling program and works to make our campus more sustainable. We fund the KGLT Radio Station at 91.9 FM and the student newspaper, the Exponent. We are the largest community supporter of the Streamline Bus and fully run the late-night buses on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights to get you downtown and home safely. We have the Exit Gallery, which is a student-run art gallery, and the Procrastinator movie theater, both in the SUB. We also offer affordable daycare, legal services, and tutoring.
So make sure to utilize ASMSU services— you’re paying for it! And get involved by working in one of our programs or representing your peers as a senator. Finally, I invite you to come to our office with suggestions, complaints, concerns, or even just to chat. We’re in SUB 221, directly next to the Ask Us desk.
