3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't go out much and i am not into the whole party scene. I enjoy a good movie every once in a while.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are great. I love all my teachers. They just need to change up their teaching styles to keep kids awake.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Good atmosphere and plenty of things to do. Except they need more discounts for students..we are broke.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My advisor is awesome and the department is great as well.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: With my major i do student teaching and i am hoping that it goes smoothly and that there are no hardships

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gym is always full, they need a second gym to accommodate all the extra students.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Campus is very diverse. The clubs need to get their names out so that students know more about it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is all types of food off campus that is good to eat. The brewery is my favorite because of the wood fired pizza.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The nightlife is way better if your 21 but if your not its all good because there is never a shortage of house parties. Its no blue mountain state but we still manage to drink and party.

Health & Safety: I usually feel safe when on campus. The cops aren't usually seen unless some one got caught with weed so we see them a few times a week.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Bozeman is a very nice place to stay. You have a view of the mountains and lots of places to go fishing. The town is nice and has a lot of local owned businesses. My only warning is don't leave Bozeman if your black because people will give dirty looks.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Life here is ok but god forbid you do something bad because you will pay dearly for it. If you get caught with someone that was drinking you also get in trouble and have to take long classes which you have to pay for.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are a lot of house parties on the weekends, people are super clicky though. Feels a lot like highschool. Bars are cool though.

Computers: THE INTERNET IN THE RESIDENCE HALLS IS ABSOLUTELY ATROCIOUS. IT IS ALWAYS KICKING YOU OFF AND IS ALWAYS EXTREMELY SLOW.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is pretty good. There are more places to eat then where I am from and for a smaller town, they have a fairly good variety.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love my program. Everyone is kind and genuinely wants you to succeed.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It was pretty easy to get into my program and there were not a lot of special criteria to meet.

2 College Freshman

Weather: It is really cold here. If you are not a fan of the bitter cold, find a different school then.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: House parties are generally the largest party areas on campus.

Greek Life: The greek life at MSU is horrendous. There are constantly reports of rape, drug abuse, etc. that come from the greek parties.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Overall, sports are not as big as they could be but are still a large portion of the university.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Many students at MSU, mainly those from out of state, are surprised that they ended up here. What they find even more surprising is that they never want to leave. Scholarly students find a great research university and exceptional learning environment. Skiers look out their windows to see countless backcountry and ski hill opportunities. Coffee shop connoisseurs could sample different drinks for weeks, and young philosophers could sit around for hours throwing ideas out to one another. Where the school is lacking, the town and surroundings compensate, and vice versa. An education should consist of more than sitting in a classroom, and MSU realizes this.

Attracting people who love life and are happy in their current situations, MSU and Bozeman have a pleasant atmosphere. The only problem with this is the unwillingness to change, which causes a lot of issues to stagnate in the community. Overall, MSU is a place where the happiness is infectious, as is the relaxed state of mind. Everyone is accepted, and people from different backgrounds love to mix. Most often, the people who are not happy here are those who dislike fun, nature, and getting an education.
