4 College Freshman

Academics: good ive leanred a lot

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Lots of houses to join, All sororities and all but 1 fraternity have housing available.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Anything in terms of Athletics is great at this school, The stadiums (Football, Softball, Soccer), rec center

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on where you come from, I think off-campus housing is very fairly priced.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great food, all around, any-time of day. Just go downtown and walk in any place and it'll be good

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Wednesday and Thursday is when the weekend begins, starting downtown in the earlier week and going the frat parties on Friday and Saturday.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is a great way to make new friends and adjust to the college lifestyle. although the dorms aren't great Jesse is the most social, while Craig has by far the Biggest rooms. Miller is the newest.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Rent is high in Missoula. It's hard to be a full time student and manage a full time job to pay all of the bills. They trap students here because they know they (or their parents) will pay to have off-campus freedom.

Off-Campus Dining: Great restaurants for this town. Many options, but it's more cost effective to get groceries.

Scholarships: I received the loans I requested. I honestly think it'd be incredibly beneficial if they required students to attend a financial planning course before taking out loans. Too many students do it without realizing what they're committing themselves to.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Compared to Army chow, the available options are *amazing* and diverse.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The amenities are comfortable in most dormitories--you need to pay more for newer/more spacious facilities. The staff is kind and helpful. Rules are gently enforced and accessibility to resources is easily managed. Biking, walking, boarding or slack-lining to class are all possibilities and the diversity is a welcome relief from the rest of the state. The grounds are beautiful and the dorms stay plenty warm in the winter time. The University of Montana makes it easy to love where you live.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The University is helpful in providing information on off campus housing as well as apply to the university owned off campus housing. Living off campus can be pricey but affordable if you move with people you like, and the freedom is nice.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places to go for wonderful food.

3 College Junior

Administration: Administration is very different depending on the teacher, RA if you live in a dorm, and creating organizations are possible if requirements are met.

College Junior

Party Scene: I'm not apart of the school party seen but there are many amazing breweries and clubs to go to in your free time. I think the impact on students depends on their personality.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid office does everything to help you if you go in for help. Once you apply for financial aid, the office will attach scholarships you are qualified for.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I like the variety of food choices, the price of food is a little high, but the hours of operation are good and convenient.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living in off campus housing is great! The apartments are affordable, all amenities are payed for except heat and electric, not far from campus, and beautiful views.

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.

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.
