Going back to school, after spending six years post graduation raising my two children, was a very scary and intimidating experience for me. Luckily, MSUB made me feel very informed and confident, and there was always someone available to reassure me that I had made the right choice to go back and keep going. I felt so confident from my advisors at MSUB, that my GPA actually doubled from what it had been in high school!
Review Montana State University - Billings
As a freshman I experienced an environment at MSUB that was very conducive to learning and provided a decent social atmosphere. MSUB has an amazing staff who's goal truly seems to be helping their students achieve their goals. The university has a good resource network and provides almost everything a student could need in their time spent learning here. The university is set in a nice community that is rather conservative and is actually rather anti-party scene requiring a bit more discretion. Overall I believe that the social environment is one of the biggest areas with room for improvement however I do not believe it's possible until the rest of the community experiences some change.
There is a friendly atmosphere. The instructors, professors, and they care about you and your learning and are always approachable. Smaller class sizes mean more one-to-one attention and a better chance at success.
