Choosing Montana Western was a great choice to easily adjust into a college academic life. While the school is small, the diversity is poor but the academic catalog gave students a variety. The innovative "Block scheduling," allows students to take one, three hour long, class at once. After three weeks of a course, the final exam is given. Throughout a semester, one may do this process over four times to make an equivalent credit earn of an average college student. This scheduling allowed me to focus on one subject at a time. This scheduling was a smooth, stress free transition into college.
However, with the small student population and rural surrounding town, the student life is lacking. Many students find the school to be hospitable and comfortable, but lonely. Without engaging in illegal activities, the student population may seem of quite a bore.
