UM Named Among 'Best Colleges For Winter Enthusiasts'

The University of Montana again has received national recognition for its great winter lifestyle. UM was among eight schools named this month to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges for Winter Enthusiasts.”

The eight were chosen as best schools in the nation for students who are searching for a “cold, crisp breeze; fresh snow; and access to skiing and snowboarding.” U.S. News & World Report’s Education web producer Ryan Lytle writes, “If winter weather tops your college wish list, then these schools are for you.”

UM’s profile showcases a popular photo titled “Main Hall in Winter” by University photographer Todd Goodrich. In the profile, Lytle writes that UM “offers a ton of winter fun.” The community’s annual First Night Missoula New Year’s Eve celebration also is mentioned.
