For over a decade, MSU Library has been serving root beer floats during new student orientation. This is a chance to meet library staff in a casual environment and to enjoy a cool treat with your classmates.
In recent years, KGLT, MSU's campus radio station, has joined us in the festivities by bringing a live DJ to spin tunes. Together, we bring you Sweet Tunes and Root Beer Floats.
Make one at home!
Hint – For an extra cool treat, chill your glasses in the freezer before preparing.
KGLT is Montana State University’s campus radio station. Volunteer DJs, both MSU students and community members, host live music programs. The station keeps the spirit of alternative public radio alive, giving DJs the freedom to play the music that moves them the most. Alternative rock, bluegrass, country, ska, classical, and more all have a home on KGLT.
KGLT also airs a limited number of syndicated programs such as This American Life and Mountain Stage, and is proud to be the home of Chrysti the Wordsmith, a two-minuted radio program about origins and meanings of words and phrases.
Three times a year KGLT runs an Apprentice Class*. Open to students and members of the community, the class runs an hour a week for nine weeks and provides the tools to become a KGLT DJ. Apprentices are required to attend all classes and must apprentice with on the air with a DJ. Find out more about becoming a DJ and how to apply for the apprentice class.
*Currently, the KGLT Apprentice Class is postponed due to the pandemic. If you are interested in the class call the KGLT General Manager at 406.994.6484 to get on a waiting list. You can also fill out the application and bring it to the KGLT office on the third floor of the Strand Union Building.
