What is your overall opinion of this school?

Five years ago, if I had been told I would be going to college in Bozeman, Montana I would have called you crazy. As an aspiring filmmaker, I would not have thought that Montana State University would be the university for me; surprisingly, MSU has a lot to offer to film students such as myself, and students in other disciplines. MSU is highly accredited for teaching future nurses, engineers, and agricultural workers. With such a wide variety of areas of study it is easy for students to connect with people outside of their own major. This allows for collaboration between disciplines in order to create amazing results. Our Natural Science and Film programs have worked together to develop the Master of Fine Arts program for Science and Natural History filmmaking--the only program of its kind in the world! This unique program brings together students of film, and of science to create compelling studies and documentaries. Even better, undergraduate students have access to help from grad students in the MFA program, allowing undergrads to further their education and build connections before earning their BA. This is only one example of the innovative programs that MSU has developed, and what I have experience studying here. Not only do MSU’s academics speak for themselves, but my experience with MSU’s ResLife has demonstrated a strong commitment to community building. As a Resident Advisor, I have worked hard to build a floor, and hall community that is engaged in more than academics alone. ResLife works hard to engage students out of a classroom setting. As an RA, I work my hardest to connect with students on a personal level in order to make them feel hear, and feel like they have a place in the community. Because all Freshman live on campus their first year, I find it important to build a community that residents feel excited to come home to. The Residents Halls also have Living Learning Communities, which are floors where likeminded people live together, allowing for easier collaboration, and development of community during their Freshman year. This allows students to find their interest, and people who have similar interests also. By creating well knit communities, my role as an RA has allowed my to engage my residents in the Bozeman community. This past month, my floor raised $150 for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. Montana State’s ResLife does an excellent job of giving back to the community and give the Bobcats a positive reputation. Personally, this is part of why I believe MSU is an amazing university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Montana State University is an overall slightly above average university they offer many courses, activities, and resources however they focus too much on making new residence halls and not enough on availability of parking and snow and ice conditions. There's definitely room for improvement on those topics. Other than that professors are pretty great and classes are interesting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Huge lecture halls, blizzards, and centipedes. OH MY! Montana state university is simultaneously a truly wonderful and truly terrible school. First, the bad: the hall I live in, which shall remain anonymous (rhymes with Sappner) is overrun with centipedes; often it is nearly impossible to get to class because of the sub-zero temperatures, and truly horrifying amounts of snow; the lecture halls are crowded with people who will inevitably fail basic classes because the professors are so pompous that they cannot simply explain a formula without letting it become a treatise on their own genius. Now, the good: the snow, while unpleasant, creates a few beautiful and rare Blue bird Powder days during the year (its a skier thing); the dining halls are some of the best in the nation; despite all the weird hipsters in their juice bars, the people here are pretty great. The takeaway here is: as is MSU c'est la vie. There is good and bad but in the end you're left looking at that big blue sky fringed by snow-capped mountains, and I, at least, wouldn't change it for the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school, but I feel that there isn’t enough financial aid opportunities for out of state students. It’s very hard to establish residency, as you lose your out of state scholarship, and you have to get a job and only do school part time. It’s not super easy. The residence halls are decent. We pay way too much for food that is so bad. The coffee shop is good though. There are not a lot of work-study jobs that pay enough to be worth the time. Teachers are amazing though. Which is important.

I choose Montana State University for its academics, opportunities, for its LGBTQ friendly environment. I have been longing for a home that is less conservative and more open-minded than in my hometown. I love Montana State University, I would suggest anyone attend college here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall Montana State University is an institute of very niche and diverse minds. The drug and alcohol are not very well controlled, however, because of this it usually weeds out the incapable and ill-motivated. The classes are great and the professors are well versed in their subject area. It is an enjoyable experience as long as you avoid the party-life culture.

Montana State University is a vibrant community of students who not only love to learn and question, but also love to have fun, especially in the great outdoors. The classroom environment promotes deeper thinking and intellectual conversation, and the classes and professors are interesting and engaging. Overall, Montana State University is a great school in a great town and I would highly encourage any high school students looking for a great all-around college experience to apply and attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school and that caters to many different areas of interest. Opportunities for growth both in character and academically can be found in abundance on campus. Recreational activities and educational clubs can be found at every turn and each offer volunteer hours, a chance to learn new skills, as well as meet new people! Montana State University is well deserving of the pride felt by its students, community, and state.
