The state of Montana was endowed by the Federal 1862 Morrill Act–allowing for the creation of United States land grant colleges–with the power to create Montana agricultural or “land grant” colleges, based upon Montana’s vast real estate.

Consequently, the Montana legislature passed an act creating the Agricultural College of the State of Montana, February 16, 1893.

During its first 70 years, MSU saw its name change a few times: The original name given in 1913, “Montana State College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts,” was shortened, by the end of the decade, to “Montana Agricultural College.

The College’s name was changed again in 1921 to “Montana State College.” Today’s “Montana State University” ceased being a “college” in 1965, when it was given the title of “University.”
