Jorgensen Family Addition


The Jorgensen Addition is dedicated to the students of the University of Great Falls and was made possible, in part, by a generous donation from long time resident and distinguished member of the community, Frances J. Jorgensen.


Mrs. Jorgensen's dedication to quality higher education has been displayed throughout the years in the form of scholarships and now her generosity has helped to make the 10,000 square foot addition possible.


On behalf of future UGF Students, we thank Mrs. Jorgensen for her support.


First Interstate Bank is a multi-state, $3.3 billion banking organization. First Interstate has evolved since 1968 from a single bank in Sheridan, Wyoming to operating 56 branches and over 120 ATMs in Montana and Wyoming.


In 1984, the company purchased a franchise agreement with First Interstate Bancorp to use the First Interstate Bank name and logo. In 1996, when First Interstate Bancorp of California merged with another banking institution, our bank negotiated to retain the First Interstate name. We now serve 30 communities across Montana and Wyoming.


Thanks to a generous donation from First Interstate Bank, the University of Great Falls Library was able to purchase an integrated automated library system.
