Overall Experience: Montana State University is incredible. Beautiful campus, beautiful surrounding area. There are great professors and classes available, as well as multiple opportunities and resources to help you along the way. It is constantly growing and expanding to become even better. All faculty members are extremely helpful and care about the students. It is a great atmosphere overall, and I would definitely still choose this school if I could do it all over!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved my university! The faculty has been fantastic and treats each student well! The campus is beautiful and welcoming whether covered in snow or gleaming in the sunshine and heat! Every student I meet is so happy that they came here and enjoy the classes they are taking. I'm in the Ag department, and knowing the extent and history of this program makes me proud to be a part of it!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a good school but it's been very hard for me being away from home. I've lived in the same town my whole life and didn't expect going to college to be hard. If I could do it again I might have considered somewhere closer to home.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are decent and most of the professors work to help students succeed in their classes. I really like the club I have joined and like living in the dorms and the small town feel. The campus is beautiful and there are so many activities available for people to do.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've visited quite a few schools between my own choices, my friends' choices and my siblings choices for college and MSU was by far my favorite school. I loved the campus as well as the Bozeman community. Not only was it beautiful, but the people were also incredibly friendly. My first day of classes I was so nervous and by the end of the day my nerves were completely gone due to the new people I met and the brilliant professors. While Bozeman is known for its engineering program, there are plenty of other degrees to consider and study. The school's CORE Curriculum is also managed in a way that if students want a more diverse education they can get it, or if they want to focus on their degree right away there are classes that fill CORE Requirements as well as degree requirements. Overall, I'm proud to say that I'm a Bobcat.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Amidst the obvious feel that being an English major in an Engineering school that I am below in the pecking order of importance, MSU is a good school. Their engineering program is top notch and their english professors are not bad at all. Bozeman is a great town and has filled me with a plethora of positive experiences that I am very thankful for.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is unique because it has lots of options for everything from dining to degree. The ceramics program, which I'm going into, is good and the ceramics room has tons of wheels and kilns. There's even a ceramics guild and a gallery and different events.

Overall Experience: Love my school. I like the campus and the friends that I have made. I really like Being on the Rodeo Team and traveling to the different towns to compete at the rodeos. The professors are great at MSU-Bozeman and the town people are very friendly. There is always something happening at the University for students to attend. The people that work in the offices are great and very helpful. I would not change anything about the school, it is great.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Math program isnt the best

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The campus at my school s extemely beautiful! The professors are wonderful and are very available for help. I have met many times with the head of chemical and biological engineering at my campus for help without appointment with no trouble. This school aims towards graduating students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: MSU was the perfect fit for me. I love the valley and the social life and paired with great classes I couldn't have asked for a better school.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Bozeman has some great restaurants and coffee houses. There are a lot of different restaurants, some upscale thai places, the regular fast food, and some great pizza places. The community is very supportive of MSU students and usually you can get a discount with your ID.

Administration: As far as making things more convenient for students, MSU doesn't have the best track record. They are constantly undertaking massive construction projects which take away student parking and expect people to be able to find other options. There have been some drug issues, but they are very discreet about handling offenders.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Overall the variety and quality of the food is pretty good. The only thing I can complain about is that because of my course schedule, I can't always make it to a dining hall in time for meals so I have to eat salad or something else light.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school isn't very great at financial aid, they have multiple offices in different buildings that all deal with different parts of the process so it's not very smooth. My advice is to get as much of the process out of the way as possible before the year starts otherwise you might be in a pickle.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is really close to almost all of the other buildings on campus, so the commute is really easy and I've never been late to class. The resident hall staff tries really hard to get people involved in different fun activities. In the newly renovated buildings, the rooms are really nice and there are lounges and computer labs as well as community kitchens in every hall. The rooms can get a bit small especially if you're sharing with someone else, but overall the dorms are great.

Campus Food: We are given plenty of options to choose from, so if you do not like the food they cooked for that day/meal then you have other options to make a sandwich, salad, cereal, hotdog, hamburger, taco, chicken nuggets, bagel or fresh fruit.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is a great community but not as clean as it could be.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have to live with my parents due to the high cost of off-campus housing.

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.
