Describe Missoula? It’s unique. In the best way.

Ask anyone who’s ever been here. They’ll tell you. This place is special. People surf on the river that runs through downtown. There’s an indoor wooden carousel that operates year round. The city reminds dog owners not to let their pets chase wildlife. The native bull trout are treated like treasured heirlooms. Deer are just as common as squirrels (See: dog/wildlife). The summer farmers markets span downtown. Breweries abound. So do art galleries. And then there are the mountains. They stand majestic, often covered in snow or wildflowers, all around us.

As a student, you can be a part of this special place. Whether you’re coming for your first visit, just arrived for first-year orientation or are simply looking for things to do in between studies, we recommend you keep these links on your homepage:
