About 13 percent of the US population is foreign–born, a figure not seen since the early decades of the 20th century. Today’s immigrants differ considerably from those a century ago, both in country of origin and education. This side trip will examine the economic impacts of immigration on native-born workers, firms and consumers, and on government finances as immigrants pay taxes and use services. The children of immigrants — born and raised in the destination country— often play quite different roles in the economy than was true of their parents.

MSU Wonderlust is a high-qualitycommunity resource for lifelong learning for the Bozeman area.  Here is university-quality instruction by experts in a huge number of subjects, some multi-week courses, some one-off events.  They come free of homework, exams, or papers: The MSU Wonderlust experience is just a chance to learn new things or review things we’d already studied.  It was also an opportunity to meet people with a wide variety of interests.

Last year we transferred to operations to MSU and took on the supportive role as "Friends of..."  This past year was our first as Friends of MSU Wonderlust with the mission to support and promote MSU Wonderlust.
