Colleges in Montana
A mountainous Western state, Montana is often referred to as “Big Sky Country,” but it has no official nickname. The largest landlocked state in the US has two public university systems, the Montana State University System and the University of Montana System. There are a handful of private schools and tribal community colleges in Montana, as well. The oldest in the state is the College of Montana, which merged with Rocky Mountain College, the most selective institution in The Treasure State. Top industries in Montana include agriculture, travel, and timber, but the fastest growing is tourism. With Glacier National Park, Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, Helena, The World Museum of Mining, and Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park all within its borders, there’s a lot to attract out-of-staters.
