    College Freshman: It's only my first semester, but so far I've absolutely loved it! All the students, teachers, staff, and faculty have been extremely nice and welcoming. The academic advisers have been so helpful in choosing classes. Since I'm currently majoring in Elementary Ed. while taking prerequisites to get into a dental school once I graduate, I know it was a little bit tough for my adviser to help me figure out how to choose classes, but she had me meet with a pre-med adviser as well and both of them have been working together and with me to make sure I'm on track for my major and my prerequisites. The professors are also extremely helpful and will meet with any student whenever possible just to make sure the students do well. They're constantly communicating with the students and reminding them of any important dates, which I hear not many professors at other campuses do.

    I think my school is unique because we have a lot of diversity on campus and there are so many ways for everyone to get involved with our school. I also love the absolutely beautiful view of the mountains we have as well as how beautiful our town, Bozeman, is. It's really something special to know just how supportive everyone who lives in Bozeman is of the students of MSU. They provide us with free public transportation around town and to the ski resorts nearby and so many other things.

    I would absolutely choose this school over any other simply because of how interesting all the courses are, the welcoming environment, and, above all, because it feels like home.
