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.
