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.
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.
This University is so helpful and willing to do whatever is needed to help you get your degree. Everybody is so nice!! I love how small the class sizes are, because it allows you to get more of a one on one experience. Also being able to focus on just one class at a time makes it easier to really understand the material. Not only are the staff and classes great, but they also make the enrollment process very easy. They are there to help you step by step through the whole process and always make sure everything is filled out correctly. Western is a great school and is highly recommended to everyone!
