4 College Freshman

Academics: There are lots of options for academic success

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: They are there but it's definitely not a peer pressure situation and there are plenty of people like myself who do not partake but there are a lot that do as well.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am here on a academic scholarship and I feel like I am being challenged.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Probably not the best school for history. Science majors seem to have a lot of options.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe. I am also a guy so I don't know what that would be like for a girl but I think it's generally pretty safe.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is the same as it was in the 70's, they just build new dorms but it's hard to get in and what you pay for isn't what you get.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not really sure about this one as I am not in one but everyone I know is, they are nice

Athletics: Everyone goes to the football games and basketball games but the spirit isn't quite there like other colleges.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone I know has gotten a job from this school. Job fairs help, so do alumni, get a good major and jobs are easy.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I'm almost never scared about walking around campus, worst is at night, but still every path is lighted, I only heard of one or two safety issues, honestly you should worry more about bears.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Great RAs, great community, loved Hannon and how it has the dining hall, I don't like some of the changes that are coming. :(

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The fraternities and sororities on campus are awesome, and I wish the non-greeks would stop looking at stereotypes, cause not all houses are the same, and our greeks are very diverse- the average student.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Lots of students, parents, and alumni attend football games, even if the team doesn't always win

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a good school. Lots of knowledge is complied into one space where people ultimately come to learn, whether it be about their field, other people, new experiences, or just life itself. The location is amazing as Bozeman is a stunning town filled with interesting activities that average university town does not have to offer. The courses and professors are very useful. Everything is thought-out when designed. It's just a great school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not ivy league, but only a step below. While there are schools that are known for prestige, Montana State University should be known for its real-world usefulness. You come to learn; you learn to work; you work to contribute. It's bustling with purpose and optimism. The community loves the university, and, frankly, the whole state admires it. An MSU graduate is practically a local hero, especially in Bozeman's technology firms. The period between graduation and being hired is shorter than that of the average American. The degree you receive pays for itself.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live in the dorms, but those who do generally enjoy the experience. It's convenient, has a good meal plan, but it's still a dorm. It gets the job done and doesn't have drawbacks unknown to regular dorm life.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Although not prominent, the Greek Life functions.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: An active life is available to anyone who wants it.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: While there aren't a lot for a college campus, there are still a lot, and the school could definitely punish the perpetrators more. However, this is also an issue with the state and country as a whole, so the school is not entirely to blame.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many students at MSU, mainly those from out of state, are surprised that they ended up here. What they find even more surprising is that they never want to leave. Scholarly students find a great research university and exceptional learning environment. Skiers look out their windows to see countless backcountry and ski hill opportunities. Coffee shop connoisseurs could sample different drinks for weeks, and young philosophers could sit around for hours throwing ideas out to one another. Where the school is lacking, the town and surroundings compensate, and vice versa. An education should consist of more than sitting in a classroom, and MSU realizes this.

Attracting people who love life and are happy in their current situations, MSU and Bozeman have a pleasant atmosphere. The only problem with this is the unwillingness to change, which causes a lot of issues to stagnate in the community. Overall, MSU is a place where the happiness is infectious, as is the relaxed state of mind. Everyone is accepted, and people from different backgrounds love to mix. Most often, the people who are not happy here are those who dislike fun, nature, and getting an education.
