The MOOSE wants to spread Bobcat Fever! In celebration of MSU Homecoming 2011, the Montana State University Chamber Relations Committee has initiated a comprehensive “Paint the Town” campaign. 


Organizers have partnered with 18 businesses throughout the community and 16 unique student groups to begin the process of turning Bozeman blue and gold!  Join the team and share your Bobcat spirit in any or all of these ways:

1) Paint your own storefront, hang Bobcat flags or signs and/or showcase Bobcat merchandise in the windows.  Need GO CATS signs?  Contact Jodie DeLay at 406-994-2502 and she will arrange to have some delivered (while supplies last).

2) Wear blue and gold every Friday and during game weekends, and encourage your employees to do the same.  Need Bobcat attire? Check out the new President’s Collection for professional attire and visit any participating retailer to find a great selection of MSU Bobcat clothing, jewelry, winter wear, and more. Current retailers in Montana

3) Enjoy the parade of blue and gold by checking out these “Paint the Town” participating businesses (and the many additional businesses that strongly support MSU):
