5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Honestly it's a pretty great environment. Academics are just right, people are generally very nice. Missoula is a very nice town. The school definitely puts an emphasis on being healthy in terms of exercise. A good portion of the student body bikes and just generally loves to be outdoors.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful but parking is a nightmare and the cost of tuition and extraneous expenses and construction that I don't receive benefits from is very high.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus! The school owned off-campus apartments are great!

Administration: The administration is pretty lenient about most issues. I lived in one of the more relaxed dorms and no one cared what you did. I mean sure you could land a RA who is super strict but most are fairly laid back. Tons of drugs get used around campus and I feel like no one cares as long as you don't flaunt it. For example if people go to their dorms and drink or smoke weed no one cares but if kids walked around during the middle of the day with blunts, it might be a different story. Then again, it is Missoula. I remember at one of the football games people were smoking weed in the student section. Just depends on who you hang out with. Parking is a hassle. Don't bring your car if you have the choice.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I only got a small scholarship, but financial aid did take good care of me.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Campus food is great. Sure it's not gourmet food... but this is college. With this in mind, the food is actually pretty good. The food zoo gives you great value. Every now and then the food zoo really knocks it out of the park and does really well with the food.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: By and large campus housing is great. Choose your dorm depending on what type of person you are. Quieter dorms tend to be Pantzer and Knowles/Turner. Craig, Jesse, and Aber tend to be more wild. Proximity is great. Aber is closer to athletic facilities and the UC but is further away from the food zoo. Get the all-campus meal plan. You'll have cash left over to spend at the corner store.

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.

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.
