There are always new people to meet with diverse interests and outlets for those interests. You will never be bored with the hundreds of clubs and classes for every small hobby or activities for random small holidays. The faculty and staff are extremley accomodating and kind.
The area around Bozeman was beautiful and there was plenty to do but the people kinda sucked. Was definitely a party school and hard to find people who could actually hold a conversation about non-mundane things. Lots of partying on and off campus including in the dorms. Students were very judgmental and hard t make friends.
My overall opinion of Montana state University is its a great school and a great area to live in if you love snow and sunshine. There is just so much to do here its every day there is something different to do and the environment and teachers are amazing here I could not see myself going anywhere else for college.
As a current student at Montana State University (MSU), I can guarantee that MSU will provide its students with a great education as well as fun recreational events. MSU challenges its students to work hard and get outside. The campus is very open and provides plenty of space for recreational activity. The teachers are willing to help when needed, but will only direct you in the right direction instead of giving you the answers. Overall, MSU is a spectacular school and I would suggest it to any person looking for a proper education and a fun time.

If I were to go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself two things; if something doesnt feel right with your major or your social activities then change it right away, and be very positive and social on the very first day of college. If I would have gone with my gut after the first semester of college, I would have saved myself many nights of worrying and confusion due to the difficulty of my engineering major. I always had a gut feeling that I should be doing something else but I chose to ignore that feeling and wait another whole year before I finally changed majors to the one I love. My second comment to myself about being more social and confident would have helped me tramendously in making more friends and being an overall happier person. Now I'm not saying I'm an unhappy person, but if I would have been more outgoing during my first couple weeks at college I think I would feel a lot more cofident about my future and the life I'm living. Overalll i love my college and college life.
It is extremely geared towards my major and the outdoors. I am in anthropology and it has one of the best archaeology departments in the West. Bozeman even has a museum, Museum of the Rockies, which once housed the renowned paleontologist Jack Horner. It also has many outdoor sports to participate in. We have classes in snowboarding and skiing, as well as campus wide hikes and river rafting expeditions. Even some of the dorms have floors geared towards outdoor enthusiests.
what i really wanted to go into, and if there were more scholarships available
The greek life in this town is lacking. The most poplular fraternity is the agricultural house.
I believe the best thing about Montana State University is that its business program is among the top in the nation. I have also found several good friends within the business department who are willing to help me understand things that I don't get right away.
My class mates are fun, driven and all have a passion for the outdoors; they get work done then have fun.
One who is dedicated to their studies and also interested in out door activities.
Great institution of higher learning nestled in the beautiful nothern rocky mountains.
The most frustrating part of school is registering for new classes and thinking that you dropped one section to pick up a new section to find that it didn't really do that but luckily I called the registrar's office and they were willing and able to help. The other frustrating part is trying to meet with my advisor and actually getting advise but again luckily my older sister has been there before me and has shared her solutions.
People who prefer small classes should not attend this school. This is a large university with 12,000 students; there are so many people that there is not enough time in the day to make all of the classes with a size of 20 or less students. The smallest class I have attended contained 30 students. Despite having a large amount of students, living on campus enables one to meet and recognize most people from his or her grade. Thus, even though it is a large university, students still know each other and create a community-like environment.
How big it is. Compared to my old University
Great engineering school, #4 in the country in Architecture, friendly atmosphere, great mountains, not too big not too small, good environment for learning academically and personally.
All sports groups are popular on campus yet there is no one elite group on campus. I'm largely involved with the music groups on campus. I use to be a music major and I've definitely kept in contact with everyone I met. In most dorms students do leave there doors open. There are few quieter dorms where students are more private. Athletic events are very popular overall and guest speakers are quite popular with a large group on campus. I don't know much about the dating scene since I've been in a long distance relationship with a guy I met in high school. I met my closest friends through my original major. Major traditions on campus include preparing for homecoming. On a Saturday night you can go to the movies or just hang out with friends. You can also go bowling or hang out at the recreation center on campus.
Academics at Montana State University are strongly emphasized. Students spend a large amount of time studying and class participation is not only encouraged but enforced through a percentage of your class grade. I'm currently in transition of degree's and college has proven to be a struggle for me. I'm at a point where I personally need to assert myself more and I feel like this experience gives me a better view on college.
The amount of stereotyping on MSU's campus is not very prominent, however there is a pretty large stereotype of the ski bums vs. the people who are very studious. We do have jocks, partiers, stoners, and the frat kids, however it is not extremely prominent when on campus.
My overall opinion of MSU is it's a great school. The administration and teacher's genuinely care about the students and reach out to the students when there is a problem. School pride is a large part of the MSU atmosphere and the students are great.
The professors at MSU are GREAT! they are always available and are more than willing to meet with you over the weekend. They make an effort to learn all their students names and get to know you personally. I am on a first name basis with all of my professors and its great. Some will even give you their personal cell in case you have questions. They are also very interested in helping prepare you for the workforce and want to see you succeed.
I decided to go to Montana State University because it is close to my family and is a great school academically and socially.
