    The expiriance one program allows students to get a quality education along with allowing students to have plenty of time for a full time job and home work. From my personal expiriance I feel I'm learning a lot more by only having to focus on one topic at a time rather that trying to learn multiple subjects at a time. The cost of attendance is one of the lowest in the nation, and the cafateria food is amazing, offering health options for every meal.

    University of Montana Western is a great school. They try and get everyone involved and try and have a good time. The education part is the best, its called experience one, you take one class for 18 days and you get four credits for it, it is the best.

    I hate western. The classes are not challenging and I feel it isn't as caring of an environment as advertised. My experience here was the complete opposite of what I was told before attending.

    The University of Montana-Western is an amazing school. If you enjoy focusing on one class at a time this is the university for you. I highly suggest looking into this university. The classes are small, you can get to know the professors and your classmates quickly.

    Great way at taking on college with the block system. The block system means you have 1 class per month (block) that you take m-f for 3hrs a day, it is a great way to get one on one time with teachers and focus on one class at a time. Its a semester based block schedule meaning you will have completed 4 classes per semester.

    ... The registration, financial aid, and business offices are often difficult and they way to long to get anything figured out.

    the school uses a unique block-schedule for classes, meaning we take one class at a time over a period of four weeks for three hours a day. the campus is nice and offers a lot of opportunities, but its the professors that make it truly outstanding.
