4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors have been amazing at working with me to make sure that I understand the material and helping me get to where I need to be in the class. Most of them have really taken a genuine interest in my education.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I worked on campus for about six months as a barista, and my supervisor was fairly rude to me and to other employees. Yes it was close and convenient for my purposes since I don't own a car, but not worth it to be treated poorly.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The further away from campus the less likely a student will report an assault.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: It's easier to get to class on time!

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I'm not apart of the Greek system but they do great community work!

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The facilities are clean and welcoming!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a handful of stand-out professors in the Political Science and History departments in my experience. They have gone the extra mile to make sure you succeed in their classes. The professors I've had for science related classes have not been extremely accommodating.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since I am in a major that is normally for someone trying to become a teacher, it is a lot harder for me to find anyone who can give advice other than just to become a teacher. There are a handful of internships, however, most of them want someone who is majoring in one or the other fields.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Getting across campus at night can be simplified with safe ride. It is available every night to get an escort to your room at night with a simple phone call. My school has recently been sued for Title IX. Since this and other largely covered sexual assaults along with a book focused on my school by John Krakauer administrators have been diligent in reforming policies and making sure everyone is equally accomidated.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living in campus housing is extremely convenient for students. Whatever campus housing you live in, there is an opportunity for you to get to school by bus. There are some old buildings but they are sturdy. When I lived in the dorms in 2010 there was all new furniture so I feel like I lucked out there.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Many people on campus, not including myself, see our Greek system as corrupt. There is a strong stereotype applied to those who join a fraternity. However, all Greek houses are different and these people who choose to join do not deserve the stink they receive.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school made it easy for me to apply. However, there is an extremely high acceptance rate at this school.

5 College Junior

Athletics: For our division, the facilities are phenomenal and getting upgrades to become even better. The fan support is huge. There are bars across the country that are devoted to our football team alone. Everyone at a Griz game is in high spirits and friendly. Donations run our athletics.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors teach classes, they don't hand off class instruction to TAs.

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.
