4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The school has so much history within the buildings. Three of the buildings on campus were built by the first class at the school. Also by being a small private college there is plenty of time and availability of professor for one on one teaching and mentoring.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The rocktivities program allows for so many friday night events as well as before and after sports party. The debate team is growing and allows for one on one coaching.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Rocky offers a lot of majors that other schools do not have. They also call the students and ask questions about classes so that the school can improve each major. By knowing that your major is only offered at a few colleges helps the retention rates and the professors put in more effort to help each student.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a Social Studies Broadfield Education Major. I love this major, the school offers so many classes in specific areas that i feel as if I am extremely prepared for becoming a teacher.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: My favorite off campus dining is Salad Creations. They do not have only salads, but they offer paninis , wraps, and soup bowls as well. The customer service is great and the student special is a salad, chips, and a medium fountain drink. They also offer punch cards which after 10 times you get a free salad. All the salads that they offer are amazing and I have never left unsatisfied.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are a lot of bars, nothing for underage people, and maybe one club. The only way to get to and from them is with a DD or taxi

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There isn't much peer pressure, it's up to you. Policies are enforced very regularly and alcohol is the most prominent. Only a few stoners smoke pot and I don't know of any hard drugs being used.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Our soccer team is the best cheering section. They go to every game and support every team enthusiastically. Our facility isn't very good for athletes or students. We share all the amenities but they aren't very good. My highschool had a better set up.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of athletes and the biology program has pretty cute guys, most of which are smart. Most people don't really take the time to dress nice except for some of the girls, but guy wise they just wear sweats.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There is a lot of room on campus for us to just hang out outside and play games.The school does a good job with all the different recreational activities which are really fun! We set up laser tag in our gym recently. Way cool.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is only one place with student discounts. There is a lot of fast food right by campus, but all the good restaurants are about minutes away and are pretty expensive.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are many different ethnic groups from all the different foreign exchange students. The only racial diversity comes from the sports programs which bring in other races. Other than that, other races don't really just come to Rocky. We do have a BGLTS alliance club on campus and multiple christian clubs, but no other religion oriented clubs, though there are people with different religions on campus.

3 College Junior

Computers: There are plenty of computers but they do get crowded during finals and such. There is no limit or cost for printing, but copies do cost money. However you can get around that by scanning the document, emailing it to yourself, then going to a printer and printing the "copy" as many times as you need it.

3 College Junior

Majors: I didn't have any difficulties getting into the program, there was nothing abnormal, just an application.

4 College Junior

Majors: There are a lot of internship and job opportunities posted around campus. Different professors and majors have more or less coursework. For biology there is a lot of time with labs that are being invested and then on top of that there is a lot of homework. Then compare that to psychology majors (I am both) there is barely any homework and the stuff that is assigned is easy. We have a pretty good music program and facilities for them, or at least it seems that way, and the theatre department has opportunities for plays on and off campus and the plays that I have seen have been really good.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school itself has pretty strict policies about drinking and drugs in the dorms but the RAs usually stay out of that business unless they directly see it or are given complaints about it. That being said, the drinking and drug use isn't really a problem. The thing that like about the athletic program is their policy towards drunk and alcohol use. Coaches can set up more strict rules but the school's policy allows the student to receive counseling if caught doing drugs that way they can be rehabbed.

3 College Junior

Transportation: We have an international airport in Billings and it can be a hit or miss with how easy it is to get a flight and waiting times. I live in OK and go to school in MT, so I use this pretty frequently, although like any other flight cost, it is expensive. There is also a bus transportation system here that can take you around the country but I have never used it.

College Junior

Greek Life: There are no Greeks at our school, however MSU which is in the same town does I think have Greek sororities and fraternities.

3 College Senior

Computers: It's great to have so many computers available; it does make plenty of opportunity for students to relax even if they can't afford their own. Also, printing is free, which is great. The only downfall is the occasional outage of network, which can be problematic for those who can't get to the public library but are still expected to get their online homework done.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Saying there's an atmosphere at all is quite generous. Only one type of person can have a good time in Montana: the hiking/outdoorsy type. I think it's great to have so many outdoorsy options, but there's more to a city than that, and it makes it pretty impossible to meet new people. Practically no-one has any idea what to do around town, not even the locals.

College Senior

Greek Life: There is no greek life. We have no options for fraternities or sororities.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The games are well-advertised, but there are no intramural sports, which is unfortunate for people who'd like to have a group to play with without being overtly competitive.

1 College Senior

Weather: It's extremely cold. It makes it hard to do many social activities or "outdoorsy" events for those who are sensitive to the cold. It's something that has to be taken with a grain of salt, since the school is great, but the state is not.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There -is- diversity, but it's not exactly accepted. Aside from the European foreign exchange students, there aren't a ton of races represented, but mostly social minorities are the ones who face challenges. There's a lot of gender policing ("sissy", "gay") and homophobic comments, mostly from men, especially those in sports. Furthermore, almost all Montanans have vocal negative views toward the local Native Americans, though there are only a few on campus.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: If you have any external scholarships, you have to reiterate that to the staff every semester, instead of having a note in your record that gets them in touch with the appropriate company, which can be slightly stressful. Pretty much everyone gets a partial tuition scholarship, though, which is nice.
