The Princeton Review
"You can enjoy both ´the outdoors and a great education´ at UM, a school that ´is whatever you want it to be,´" begins the two-page profile of UM in The Princeton Review´s 2007 edition of "The Best 361 Colleges."
In addition to outstanding academics, important criteria considered for inclusion in "The Best 361 Colleges" are location, cost, size and campus culture.
UM also was included in The Princeton Review´s lists of "Best Western Colleges," which covers a 15-state region, and "America´s Best Value Colleges." Only about 15 percent of the four-year colleges in the nation are included in the 2007 edition of the review.
For its record of having excellent service-learning programs and blending academics with community work, the University also is listed in The Princeton Review´s "Colleges with a Conscience: 81 Great Schools with Outstanding Community Involvement."
But it isn´t just The Princeton Review that thinks UM is a great school.
Rolling Stone magazine called the University the "Most scenic campus in America." Outside Magazine states it is "among the top 10 colleges nationally for combining academic quality and outdoor recreation."
National Geographic Adventure Magazine says Missoula is "a heady place - full of outdoorsy intellectuals who enjoy contemplating the West almost as much as they love playing in it."
Come see how UM merges academia and the great outdoors to create one-of-a-kind educational adventure.
