Montana Tech (then the Montana State School of Mines) opened its doors to our first 39 students on the 11th of September 1900 with one building (Main Hall) and two degrees (Mining Engineering and Electrical Engineering). It was our DayOne. Now, over 100 years later, we boast two growing campuses between Montana Tech and Highlands College and offer over 60 degrees.
To celebrate our history and our growth, we plan to hold our third annual digital fundraising event DayOne on the 11th and 12th of September. The goal is to bring together our Montana Tech community, to share what is happening on campuses, and raise funds for our departments and programs in focused areas.
We'll share more details soon but in the meantime don't forget to sign up to be an Ambassador for this year's DayOne!
