A student who is not outdoorsy would probably not be as satisfied with this school since it is a very outdoorsy centered location. In the winter everyone is bundled up in winter clothes, hats, snow boots, etc. Everyone is very friendly and there is quite a bit of mingleing among students. There is a large amount of people from montana, washington, oregon, alaska, a few from colorado, and some from california. There are also others, however it is not as prominent as the other states mentioned previously. many students are politically active and it tends to be slightly more conservative in their political views.
My classmates are best described as relaxed and easy-going. Everyone is very friendly and can often be seen wearing sweatpants to class. Montana State also gets its fair mix of cowboys and cowgirls, as there is a strong Agriculture department. There is also an awesome ski hill close-by, which brings in the “ski bums.” However, that does not mean students are not serious about their education. Students love to enjoy the many outdoor activities while remaining diligent in their studies. Students support one another in class and while conducting job searches while having fun the whole time.
Smile! Make eye contact and say Hello to everyone (well maybe not everyone ) because others are feeling just as uneasy as you are about being somewhere that is totally new and different. Ask questions, knowing that someone previous has asked the same question because we are all trying to figure out this new life. Study every day and don't put off today for tomorrow because tomorrow never comes. Stay true to yourself, your values, goals and person. Have fun! and then have some more fun. Try something new, go to a foot ball game against the Griz!

There is a large variety of ethnic backgrounds at MSU. I don't believe any type of student would feel out of place at MSU. Students do talk about what they would hope to make some day and students come from all types of financial backgrounds. Students are politically aware/active and they do talk about politics but I would have to say they are not left, right, or center. They are private with their political views.
Classmates throughout my four years were supportive, helpful and often helped me by supplying me with notes and worksheets that I missed because I was travelling with the volleyball team. Without such a supportive group of individuals in my classes I would have been unable to play a sport and maintain the GPA I did.
Many of my classmates are friendly and supportive. There are a few that are rude and unfriendly, but thankfully they're the minority. My classmates are always willing to help and discuss the content of the class and are willing to ask for help as well if necessary.
Diverse and questioning, they enjoy theral discorse on a range of topics as there is always two or more people on each section of an arguement and rarely is it as flat as a yes or no possibility.
I am transfering to MSU from Morrisville State College so when I was at Morrisville my classmates were friendly, inspiring, and we were always sharing ideas and working together through them.
My classmates at MSU bozeman are outdoor orientated, athletic, and committed students who view college as a privelege rather than a right.
