4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel quite safe, and there are some great resources set up to help students in need.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are club sports for pretty much any interest.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are definitely parties, and it seems like there is a bit of something for everyone in Missoula.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My scholarship is bomb. UM seems pretty generous with their financial support.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There aren't many options, but the options we have aren't terrible. I definitely enjoy living on campus, especially with the Food Zoo and Corner Store. I wish the UC Market took meal plan money, because that's one of the best food places on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love that classes are taught by professors, not TAs, and we have access to the professors.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: My apartment is fantastic, but while I was looking for a place I saw some pretty awful ones.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There's great variety. I love the burgers at the 406 grill in the UC.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: This is starting to follow a trend, but rent in Montana is a lot less expensive than in other states.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The cost of restaurants in Montana is a lot lower than other places which is very nice for a college student. Many offer student discounts or at least have coupons.

3 College Senior

Administration: Parking police are always out to get you and it's ridiculous, especially when there is not enough parking spaces.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, incredible experiences my last four years here at UM.

College Senior

Scholarships: Did not apply for financial aid

4 College Junior

Athletics: A lot of Missoula fully revolves around the Griz. However, there are enough people like me who don't really care and it doesn't really matter expect for big games. I stay home during Griz/Cat games.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: There's options for everyone in Missoula. The downtown scene is the best of any college I've been to. There's a great feel to it no matter the season.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have had great experiences with off campus living but there are a handful of landlords around town who are not fair and cause problems.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: A handful of AMAZING places. Not a lot, so it's easy to over do one place.

3 College Junior

Administration: Besides parking, stay out of their way and they will stay out of yours.

5 College Senior

Campus Food: The Food Zoo has fresh and local food with a high variety. The food is high quality and always allows for healthy choices.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Always live music downtown, usually free or less than $10. Cheap drinks. Fun people.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I've been here for 4 years and especially at the Food Zoo, there is always something new and something for everyone.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's not bad but I've been to dorms at other colleges that are better. But it's what you'd expect of a dorm.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Pretty outdated, easy to stay out of trouble if you have a brain.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: ITs what you make of it

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I still live on campus. I haven't lived off campus. I'm really not the person to ask here.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
