University of Montana - Western Reviews
I have not started college at the University of Montana-Western yet, but i am very excited to go! I myself have heard nothing but great things about the University. A few things that I have heard are that the block scheduling is absolutely amazing. I have also heard that the Education program that they have is one of the best in the state of Montana. One last thing is that the pricing for tuition is fairly priced and won't put you in to a large amount of debt after you graduate.
The Reason why I rated The University Of Montana Western was because of the block schedule which is an amazing thing to have. Being a small college town there isn't much to do here other than partying in being part of school clubs. This school is a very diverse surprisingly being a small school in a rural county, along with the hospitality not only from the students but the locals as well are willing to help the student in whatever way possible. Issues that seem to occur at the University is how the school is not fully up to date on modern technology. The reason for this is the little funding that is used for each of the departments, only getting a couple thousand means we cannot keep up because of the expense of modern technology. Teachers here seem to have a good understanding on how to fit all the main topics in a class within 3 weeks. Science and Math are the more challenging courses here since being able to to learn something in 3 weeks is quite rather difficult for the student.
I started at the University of Montana Western in August 2017. What I have found during my first semester is the willingness of everyone to help you succeed. They actually care and want you to succeed. The small class sizes really give you an advantage for one on one attention. Concentrating on one class at a time has been so beneficial to me especially during my transition into college life. I am so grateful Western offers Experience One because for me it has been an experience of a lifetime! I love everything about Western and I really think they have done everything possible to make sure you have the tools and help to make you succeed. I could not be happier with my choice to go to Western.
