Montana State University Top Questions

Here's your chance: Say anything about Montana State University!


Montana State University is very diverse for being in Montana. This makes this University unique to me, considering I went to another university in Montana and it was not as diverse as it is here.


I chose MSU because of the Environmental Design program and the organizations they are affiliated among the program, and also the mountain culture they are part of.


Montana St is the hidden gem of US universities. The staff, student body, and campus are very comparable to well-known D1 schools, but the incredible part is that no one knows about it! It is an amazing school with excellent degree programs, but it comes in a size that is managable. Most credible D1 schools have 30,000+ students, which is too many for me, and D3 can get as small as 2,000, which is too few. MSU, at 16,000, has the benefits of a D1 staff and school at the size of a D2 one.


Montana State is unique in its out door experience, it is surrounded by beautiful mountains and plenty of fresh air. The students here love to enjoy the scenery that it offers as well as the outdoor activities.


It is extremely research active, especially for its size.


At Montana State University students are encouraged to grow as much as possible and be themselves. We are encouraged to seek adeventure and pushed to our limits in order to excel.


Montana State in Bozeman is unique in its location to skiing and other outdoor activities within 15 minutes of campus.


This school is very realistic and practical, but there is also plenty of activities off campus that will keep you active. There are plenty of hiking trails as well as some really awesome ski resorts (Bridger Bowl and Big Sky). So even though the emphasis is on education there are multiple opportunities to take some time off for fun!


The town of Bozeman is great for college aged people, and especially outdoorsy people. The skiing, hiking, fishing or other outdoor activities bring such a natural beauty to the town, campus, and life around this beautiful state.


Montana State has one of the cheapest tuition rates for in-state students in the nation. This is in part due to the great management of our faculty positons and the lower than average salary rates for professors. Another great asset of this school is the friendliness that you will find in many places. People are always willing to help out others in need.
