    It’s roughly 10 verdant miles from Oregon’s Tigard High School to the sprawling Nike World Headquarters campus in Beaverton, a 20-minute journey up I-217 if traffic is right.

    Yet, for Nico Harrison, vice president of Nike Basketball and the Jordan Sports Market for the athletic apparel giant, that journey from Tigard prep standout to executive at one of the world’s most iconic brands took a years’ long detour straight through Bozeman, Montana.

  • For Montana State University undergraduate Isabelle Brenes, digging a triceratops out of a hillside in the badlands near Ekalaka in July marked only the beginning of a long, familiar process of readying fossils for study and display.

    "It's my dream job," said Brenes, a senior majoring in paleontology in the Department of Earth Sciences in the College of Letters and Science, as she used a laser transit and grid paper to map the lay of the ribs, vertebrae and other 67 million-year-old bones uncovered by fellow crew members wielding shovels, chisels and a variety of brushes.

    Brenes and fellow crew member Tom LaBarge, another senior majoring in paleontology, are examples of how MSU undergraduates get hands-on experience while contributing to new discoveries about ancient life.

  • Erik Grumstrup’s research focuses on the smallest of particles yet has the potential to make a big impact on the technologies we use every day, from computers to solar cells.

    That potential was awarded in early July when Grumstrup, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the College of Letters and Science at Montana State University, earned a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor the U.S. government gives to independent researchers near the beginning of their careers.

    “It was really a surprise, honestly,” Grumstrup said.

    As the sun crested its low arc on a January day, the Montana State University campus was getting its usual infusion of heat from the steam plant on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Grant Street. Across the street in MSU’s newest structure, Norm Asbjornson Hall, something very different was happening.

    “On a sunny winter day like this, the building is running almost completely off the sun, with some help from the earth around it,” said Stevenson, MSU’s associate vice president of university services and an MSU engineering alumnus who was heavily involved in the building’s design. In fact, the building would consume no heat from the steam plant for the entire winter.

  • On the surface, bighorn sheep migration is like that of many other large mammals, moving to higher elevations as snow melts in the springtime then returning to lower ground to forage as winter sets in.

    But a study published this month by Montana State University researchers has delved deeper, finding diverse patterns of migration among different sheep populations. Understanding these patterns could one day help wildlife officials make more informed management decisions.

  • Montana State University Physics undergraduate Jaxen Godfrey was part of a Montana Space Grant Consortium team that traveled to Chile in July to witness the total solar eclipse while learning more about elusive atmospheric disturbances.

    "Gravity waves are basically like waves on water," Godfrey explained. The waves, which occur between layers of the upper atmosphere, are relatively common and can be caused when winds flow over a mountain range, but they remain poorly understood. An eclipse presents a special opportunity to study the phenomenon because the sudden blockage of sunlight creates abrupt thermal changes. The moon's shadow "is like a boat moving through water," Godfrey said.

  • Statistics show that rural states such as Montana face a shortage of primary and mental health care providers. Now, the Montana State University College of Nursing, supported by a four-year, nearly $2.8 million federal grant, is expanding and enhancing its Doctor of Nursing Practice program to help address those shortages and create nurse practitioners ready to hit the ground running in rural areas of the state.

    The Advanced Nursing Education Workforce Training grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will support a new College of Nursing program known as the Rural Ready Nurse Practitioner Program.
