3 College Junior

Greek Life: Nice people, not a huge scene!

4 College Junior

Athletics: Fun to attend varsity games! Usually everyone has a friend on one team or another. Club and intramural sports are crazy fun and popular!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love MSU! There is a place for everyone here. It is very accommodating to ones academic, social, physical, and spiritual wants and needs. Which is surprising for a place being tucked away in MT. If someone is looking for academic challenge and fun, healthy things to do on the weekends then MSU Bozeman is the perfect college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: MSU is a great place to be. There are a lot of interesting courses available. Class sizes vary. Many of my math classes were a small group of 20. Professors really know what they're doing

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's got great opportunities for research. MSU has a career fair every semester to get students looking for internships and careers. The Student Success Center is incredibly helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Voice Center is a great resource for those looking for help if sexual assault occurs. We have A LOT of student organisations that are a voice against rape like Students Against Sexual Assault. We even have an event called Rock Against Rape, put on by Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity and the Voice center

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Wasn't the biggest fan of Res Life, but it got me through freshman year. Rooms are terribly small. Loft the bed. All the dorms are close to campus, which is the upside. For a more social floor, be on a co-ed floor. The single gender floors/dorms tend to be more quiet.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm a Greek, and I definitely wouldn't have been able to get through my freshman year without my brothers. Greek life is a fantastic way to make new friends and find a new support system.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I like the gym a lot and have started to go regularly. Intramural sports are good if you have friends to do it with. Little bit overwhelming to go at it by oneself.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Montly great profs and TAs. Lots to do around campus

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel very safe while on campus. Walking alone does not bother me. At times I will always see a police car driving around or a campus police riding a bike.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: As an incoming freshman I got the option to live in the Freshman Apartments. It was one of the greatest residence life experience I had and would defiantly enjoy living there again.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: The Greeks like to stick together from the non-Greeks. Knowing from personally experience with a friend who was non-Greek in the first semester was hanging out with us non-Greeks and now that friend is considered a Greek and we no longer see the friend as much.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My school is far enough away from home but also close enough. My experience included a great diversity environment with fun, friendly people.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have been to Montana State University numerous times going to orientation, MSU Friday's, skiing, and visiting my friends that go there. The campus is friendly and the professors are always willing to help. Awesome school, just for me.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Once you get into your field, classes are pretty awesome. However, as more students come to MSU, class sizes are growing, which I do not support at all. General core classes are becoming less engaging.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and in the Bozeman community. Although I don't recommend it - people regularly leave their cars and houses unlocked. We have a campus police that is very active.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus life is super fun and there is a lot going on, but I would argue that it is way too expensive.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I do not know much about Greek life on campus except that the people that are involved are super committed to what they do. If you aren't a part of Greek life, no one treats you differently.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Most people at MSU are active in one capacity or another. Sports are important on campus, but not overwhelmingly so. Outdoor recreation is really important, so even if you aren't on a varsity or intramural team, you can still find people to work out with.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love MSU. There are lots of opportunities if you seek them out. It is a great school for people that like the outdoors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm so far really enjoying learning about school. I cant wait to start.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There's lots of great options for kids who want to do anything.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: i Generally feel safe when I'm alone and when i'm with friends.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: some of the dorms are really nice while some aren't.

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.
