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
Ive always wanted to be a Grizzly since i was young now that i am, in enjoy missoula very much. Its away from home but not too far. Ive had some issues within the financial aspects of school with them not issuing a pell grant and other complications, the wifi tends to glitch out but classes are outstanding and interesting variety of people. Dont call it zootown for no reason!
