2 College Freshman

Nightlife: The "college atmosphere" at Tech is nonexistent. Parties can be found but they are very rare. Being an engineering school, a lot of students are more concerned with hunkering over their chemistry book than enjoying they're Friday night. There are a couple bars in town that can be fun but it really depends on the day. If you are interested in enjoying a nightlife while in college, Tech is not the place to be.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The first couple football games of the year are usually very fun. There's lot of people and the student section is full. But after about the third game, they die down to about five students. And nobody goes to any other games.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Tech

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: People in Butte do not make enough money to go out to eat a lot. Consequently, there are about four decent restaurants in town, the rest are all either bar style food or burger joints.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: There is no public transportation at all. There is one bus that runs during the day but stops at about four in the afternoon. Even if you want a cab you're out of luck unless it's before seven.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Butte is one of the sunniest cities in the country... but sunny doesn't always mean warm. In the winters prepare for weeks of straight -40 degree(F) days and plenty of snow.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Montana Tech has some of the best engineering programs in the country. If you're looking for an engineering degree, its the place to be. Other than that, there is not much left. If you run into someone on campus that is not some type of engineer it is a treat.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: the school is reasonably priced to begin with and the financial department does a good job. if you need any help they got you covered

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene is not really noticed at all here. It is all about drinking. Butte is a drinking town, and it is very evident on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The closest universities are in Bozeman and Missoula. Each school is about an hour in different directions. The shopping in town is pretty scarce, so people usually go to Missoula or Bozeman. This town is an old irish town, so St. Patty's Day is the biggest day of the year. People come from all over the country to be here for it.

Health & Safety: Campus crime is basically nonexistent. I've personally never had a problem walking around in the dark. It's good to be safe though. Lock your car, carry pepper spray, or walk in groups at night. If you feel unsafe you can always call campus security to walk you to your car or to the dorms.
