City College Day starts October 24 with 11 a.m. event and continues with Open House from 3-7 p.m. 


MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — Please join us for this landmark event as the university’s College of Technology takes its next step in its transition to City College of MSU Billings.


The Montana Board of Regents adopted new names for the colleges of technology in May and the different units have been working to incorporate the name and logos into the comprehensive nature of the two-year programs. In the Billings community, that entity is City College.


Since the spring, steps have been made to offer more classes in the evening to fit the needs of all learners (especially working adults) and to meet the demands of workforce training needs. An evening welding class was opened this fall and has been full.  In addition, the popular programs that have long been a part of the two-year college remain: nursing, paramedics, fire science, auto body, diesel, computer networking and process plant technology.

In the meantime, we hope to see you next week for the big event! It all starts at 11 a.m. with the unveiling of our new signs at 3803 Central Avenue and moves inside the Tech Building for some presentations by special speakers and students. An invitation-only lunch follows and you are invited to that as well. A special open house for high school students, parents, neighbors and community members will be held that afternoon.
