College Profiles: University of Montana

The University of Montana is located in the pristine valley of Missoula,Montana. Missoula,Montana is one of Montanas largest cities. And easily its most liberal minded city. The University of Montana has an amazing campus that is really beautiful for a small university.

A little bit about the University of Montana:

The University of Montana was founded in 1893 in the burgeoning pioneer town of Missoula, less than 90 years after Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery explored the area. Since then, the University has nurtured a tradition of cultural and scientific exploration. Today, “The Discovery Continues” at UM – from a local, regional and global perspective into the next frontier of space.

Students receive a high-quality, well-rounded education and training for professional careers in the University’s three colleges – arts and sciences, forestry and conservation, and technology – and six schools – journalism, law, business, education, pharmacy and the fine arts.

Located at the heart of western Montana’s stunning natural landscape, UM is a magnet not only for top-notch teachers and researchers, but also for students from across the country and around the globe. A city within a city – with its own eateries, stores, medical facilities, banking and postal services, and zip code – UM has an increasingly diverse population and rich culture.

In conventional terms, Missoula is considered my home away from home and thus it has always been the home to a school that I dearly love. If you are looking for a great small town school, and great community definetly check out the University of Montana.
