Cruzado sees another promising year for Montana State

Montana State University President Waded Cruzado always sounds upbeat, but she talks about the outlook for the upcoming school year as especially exciting.

“We are very, very happy because we have many things to celebrate this coming year,” Cruzado said.

Cruzado, 59, MSU’s first female president, spoke in an interview this week in the Montana Hall office that has been hers for almost 10 years.

She answered questions about everything from growing enrollment to bringing back the popular International Food Bazaar, the fate of the cell biology and neuroscience department, and whether MSU will ban sex between faculty members and undergraduates.
