University of Montana Missoula Charter Day 119th Birthday
The birthday festivities are held each year to celebrate the anniversary of UM's chartering by the Montana Legislature in 1893 and to honor the University and its dedication to excellence. All events are free and open to the public.
The noon-hour birthday party, which will feature free cupcakes and entertainment, will be held in the University Center Atrium.
The annual Charter Day Awards ceremony takes place in the University Center Ballroom (3rd floor), and will recognize exemplary campus and community members. (Begins at 5:30)
Missoula Mayor John Engen will attend the evening awards ceremony to present an official proclamation of University of Montana Day. A reception will follow the ceremony.
Come one, come all. It's free.
