I believe the academics at MSU are good, and there is a variety. However, the professors seem to not genuinely care as a whole to providing top notch education to the students. They only make sure to meet academic requirements by providing curves when they exam students way to harshly. I love Bozeman as a town, and would rather not live anywhere else. There are great professors, and they are worth being mentioned of course, but the testing criteria on this campus are way to extreme, compared to many others across the state, and the U.S. as a whole. I know of this simply from being told by multiple people that I've met who have transferred to MSU Bozeman that have previously been in another program elsewhere.

Really cool campus atmosphere and staff is here for you. Great school. Great hunting and fishing near by as well, which is a plus.

For what one pays for out of state, you should be getting a hell of a lot more. The academics are mediocre at best, you could be getting a lot better education for the money. The professors care at least, however, some of them aren't the best. As far as the students go, it's largely "suh dudes" and bros of the like. So no diversity. There are parties, and you never have to look far to find them. The local area is nice (but very remote and theres not a lot to do beyond the outdoors), campus by and large is nice, Miller dining hall is great but it gets old after a while. The housing.... yeesh. Yeah sure they have Yellowstone, but if you're not in there, Hannon, Hapner (both all girls), or Langford (all guys), good luck. I'm in North Hedges, and the dorms (and hallways/bathrooms alike) are absolutely atrocious. All in all, if you're not outdoorsy, and you're from a big city, I'd say avoid this place.
