University of Montana Reviews
The state is poor and there is no opportunity outside of crappy retail and fast food restaurants. Montanans do not like outsiders. Its hard to meet people here. Missoula is poor with no character. If you enjoy nightlife, there are 3 decent bars (the rest suck). If you arent recreational, you will have nothing to do. Meth is a big problem. Theres homeless everywhere. UMT has a few great programs but its hard to transition into. There just arent enough resources. Instructors are bad about helping students outside of class, or even in class. They seem inconvenienced when students need help. Its like the profs live here so they can go do their granola thing rather trying to teach well. Its a pretty campus and my advisor is the best I have had. Outdoors are great. But the infrastructure, social scene, and entertainment are bad. Winters are VERY long (Oct.-May). Its negative temps. Wildfires in the summer pump smoke into the Missoula “bowl”. June is nice tho!
As an out-of-state student here at UMT, I absolutely love it. University of Montana brings a large amount of diversity and opportunities, and has some of the best food I've ever had in their campus food court. Theres a large amount of options in everything here, from multiple food choices all over campus, to multiple clubs and organizations for students to be a part of. Everyone that comes here can find something they're interested in and can participate in. This is one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever seen. From the "M" on Mount Sentinel, to the trees, the city, and to the mountains all around Missoula, this campus is beautiful.
I will be attending the University of Montana in the Fall. I can't wait! So far the school seems to have a diverse, welcoming, and engaged student body. The smaller campus and engaging faculty have been very welcoming and helpful to guide me towards a field of study. I have sacrificed to save money and work in Montana for the last year so that I could attend the school of my choice. I look forward to being a Griz and carrying on the tradition, as my dad is an alumni of the school. Can't wait to make new friends, start my education to a new and exciting career path, and live in the state that I grew up in until I was in high school. I love Colorado but am so ready to get back to the warm, welcoming people of Montana. It truly is the last best place.--Katherine Gundlach
