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.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Five Guys is really convenient if you're walking from campus, but if you want to take a car or a cab you should check out 5 on Black.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I personally haven't had any issues with campus strictness at my school.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received the Western Undergraduate Exchange Scholarship, which means that I'm currently paying half of what I'd pay to go to UC Davis (yes, paying in-state), which is absolutely fantastic.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: How you like the party scene is all about whether or not your a partier. My floor is pretty chill, but the floor below me's bathrooms get downright SCARY on Friday and Saturday nights. I can't tell you where to find them, but I'm sure they're there. Somewhere.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's never outright terrible, but it could stand a little more variety. However, the all campus meal plan lets you get smoothies at the gym, so, there's that.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Knowles Hall, which is directly across the way from Lomasson Center, where the cafeteria and general store are located, which is pretty convenient for the mornings. The entire place is pretty nice, and it's the honors dorm.

College Senior

Majors: Did not do an internship

3 College Senior

Scholarships: There always seems to be hidden paperwork.

3 College Senior

Academics: Same as any other university.

5 College Junior

Majors: The archaeology field schools are amazing.

Greek Life: Checked them out but just don't have the time.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Things aren't as bad as that headline chasing reporter tried to make it out. Two incidents in a year. Two more than acceptable but a far cry less than elsewhere.

Athletics: I mean it's Missoula. Most of us want to hit the river or hike the Bob anyways.

3 College Senior

Administration: They funnel to much money to programs that are worthless and the programs that rank higher suffer budget shortfalls.

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.
