Excerpt from Montana State Univeristy’s press release:

“Hundreds of people gathered Thursday at Montana State University’s Jabs Hall, home of the Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship, to celebrate the newly constructed building with a ceremony and ribbon cutting.

‘This building is a great addition to Montana State University and to the state of Montana,’ said Kregg Aytes, dean of the Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship. ‘…It will help us become known as the most collaborative, creative and entrepreneurial business school in the region.’

With record enrollments at MSU and in the business college, Jabs Hall will also help the university begin to address a much-needed backlog of classroom space, Aytes said. He noted that the building’s 11 classrooms can simultaneously accommodate approximately 440 students, while informal study spaces scattered throughout the building provide room for another 220 students.”
