Nightlife: I'm returning student so I'm not likely to part take in the night life..

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had a range of different kinds of professors each have very different teaching styles. It is key to understand that a professor will not change for you, but will help you understand how he teaches. This is how you will receive the most from the class. Trying to change a professor will not teach you what you need, learning to bend an receive the knowledge that can teacher you more than just the class topic.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have yet to finish the program, but from what I have seen of other students. It will be a great building block.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I have not meet this group of student so I can not say...

3 College Senior

Diversity: I believe that is no perfect diversity. Only a level field where views are aloud but none are take to hold over others. Out campus try and dose a good job, but make mistake and tries to learn from them.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I live off campus, but the other student have told me that the dorms are well keep and the cost is manageable

4 College Senior

Academics: As a returning student after 24 years the workload seemed huge, but overcome-able.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Though this is depending on the season summer the Rating would be ok.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: The classes are overloaded with students and professors do not care about helping students obtain good grades.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: I do not have any faculty support when it comes to a career after college. I have an opportunity with the Forest Service, but my professors do not allow my current seasonal job to count towards my required practicum hours.

3 College Senior

Diversity: We have a variety of foreign-exchange students, LGBT students, and students of different races. I've never seen any issues with getting along. Things seem to run smooth.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus, but visiting several classmates, the environment seems friendly.

2 College Senior

Athletics: There is too much focus on athletics at this school, there needs to be more attention paid to the college curriculum.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: UM has a reputation of rapists in our athletic department, primarily the football team. It is a concern.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The University of Montana does not provide an escape from "the real world" the same way that private liberal arts colleges and Ivy Leagues do. UM provides a diverse mix of diligent and lazy, smart and dumb, rich and poor—not a selective group of wealthy nerds with a love of learning and high SAT scores. Since the University of Montana admits 70 percent of its applicants, UM students work with all types of people with different levels of drive, intelligence, and economic class.

Life is what you make of it at UM. If UM students form relationships with professors, get involved, utilize resources and opportunities, and don't assume that a mere college degree guarantees a job, then they will get back what they put into the University. UM does not coddle or compliment its students, unless those students have the initiative to make themselves known within the community. It's not an isolated bubble, and students have to eke out their own jobs, opportunities, and attention in order to succeed. The campus itself looks Edenic, untouched, and beautiful. Students always stop to say "hi" to one another, so in its physical and behavioral aspects, UM does not resemble "the real world." Mountains, fresh air, and wide open spaces characterize life at UM, and perhaps some people prefer the hustle, bustle, and noise of the city, but to UM students, that's not "real" life.
