Every year, Montana State students light up the night with the flip of a switch.

The North and South Hedge dormitories participate in the yearly tradition of blacking out and then lighting up rooms to spell out “Go Cats” on the side of the dorms.

Students typically follow the lighting with a trip to Hyalite Canyon, but this year the homecoming planning committee wanted to try something different. Organizers say this year’s Block Party Carnival was a chance to get people excited for the lighting on campus, which will end with a special twist.

“I’m really excited to see [the lighting],” said Mariah Erhart, a PACE Associate for the MSU Office of Student Engagement. “Hopefully [the block party carnival] gets together more towards the ‘Go Cats’ lighting. It really is to pre-that, to get everybody here and having fun right before we put ‘Go Cats’ on the Hedges.”

“And then we’ll also be having ‘125’ on the North Hedges for the 125th anniversary of Montana State University,” fellow PACE Associate Gage Halverson added.

Montana State has a flurry of homecoming activities going on over the next few days, including the pep rally on Friday at 5:30 PM, all leading up to the Homecoming Parade on Saturday morning at 10 AM, followed by the big game that afternoon (kickoff is at 2 PM).
