Do I capitalize “the” when it comes before University of Montana?

No, the institution’s official name is University of Montana. Do not capitalize “the” before University of Montana unless it is the start of a sentence. Visit UM’s Style Guide for more information. 

What do I do with preprinted letterhead that has the old logo?

Please use the letterhead supply that you have. When it is time to order more, Printing & Graphic Services will automatically transition you to the new letterhead. If your department would like to transition to the new letterhead before your stock is low, Printing & Graphic Services can repurpose the old letterhead by converting it into notepads. Old letterhead also can be donated to ASUM Child Care, located in University Center Room 119, for early childhood programming and educational projects.

Email your story and any images to thrive@umontana.edu

When I write, do I have to use the word “thrive” to describe the UM experience?

No, you are welcome to use the word “thrive” when it occurs organically and/or naturally in your writing, but you can simply describe what thriving means to you using your own vernacular.
