Excellent college located in the heart of Butte America. Nationally recognized fields of study that will set you up for success. Smaller sized classrooms with more teacher/student interactions. Teachers really care about their students and want to see them succeed. Many resources available in all areas. Campus is continually improving and growing. Many sports, clubs, and events to participate in.

It is a very STEM centered school. There is a nursing program now though and it is making a huge name for itself in the state. I am looking forward to seeing what the new chancellor will bring! There are a lot of tutoring opportunities and the professors are very approachable. Small class sizes make learning easier and they are one of the top Petroleum Engineering schools in the world!
The school is welcoming and friendly, and there are ample opportunities to meet new people. I have been able to develop great relationships with teachers and faculty, which proves to help boost my confidence and my ability to learn. However, there is a lack of funding and attention to the success of the student on an administrative level. Teachers are either ill-informed or too busy to take notice of the requirements for graduation, and many students get lost in the system. I know many students, including myself, who have been forced into extra classes and semesters due to this neglect. Further, the resources available for students can be poor, and I have been forced to use multiple computer labs to simply finish one assignment. Lastly, the caliber of education varies teacher to teacher which inhibits my ability to maintain a standard for my own education. Overall, I am glad I attended this school but there are many things that concern me about this institution.
