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.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Aside from a lack of organized events, the dorms are quite nice. We have free laundry, computer labs (though I wish the ones in the dorms had printers, for convenience), and as long as things aren't broken (though it does happen often...), there's plenty of heat for the room and showers, which is nice. Dorms here, like anywhere, are a little pricey, but considering the cost of apartments around here, they're pretty standard.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I understand and respect their ideals, but asking college students to have a dry campus is a little ridiculous.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: They're very strict about alcohol, and I've never even noticed a drug problem.

2 College Senior

Transportation: Since the school is tiny, the most one might need to get around campus is a bike. However, if one has taste buds and would like to eat real food (instead of the cafeteria "food"), a car is quite necessary to get around town since the taxis are unreliable, and the public transportation is practically nonexistent.

Academics: I pretty much get all the classes i want. I like how before you can register, you have to meet with your academic advisor so he can lift the hold that prevents you from registering.

Transportation: Small town means small distances. Gas is relatively cheaper here than Cali.

Weather: This year we had terrible weather. It was in the negatives for awhile and the snow just kept coming nonstop.
