What is Vim?

The term “VIM” sits at the heart of MSU’s fight song: We’ve got the VIM, we’re here to WIN. It means: energy and enthusiasm, which has always been part of what defines MSU, those who have studied here, and those who care deeply about this place.

We’ve seen it in our athletes and in our fans, but it’s about so much more than athletics:

  • Our students show their VIM through their efforts in the classroom and the awards they win.
  • Our faculty show their VIM through their passion for teaching and their innovative research.
  • Our graduates continue to show their VIM every day through the successes they’ve had in their careers and through what they’ve given back to their families, communities and their University.

The VIM Campaign is a nationwide effort to grow the Montana State University Alumni Association’s membership to a 15,294 by Homecoming 2014, equaling the record student enrollment levels MSU announced earlier today. This growth would represent an increase of nearly 50% over the just over 10,000 dues paying members in the Alumni Association today. Typical annual memberships are $45 for alumni and friends and $20 for current MSU students. Life memberships—meaning you do it once and never have to think about it again—are $600. Both are a great value and payments can be spread over the course of a year.
