Montana State University

As Montana’s first land-grant university, Montana State University was founded on a visionary idea: that every student, regardless of background, has the right to pursue a college education.

Today MSU is Montana’s largest university and is the top choice among Montana students, boasting over 8,900 in-state students from all of Montana’s 56 counties. Located in Bozeman, MSU is also the largest research hub in the state, providing students with ample opportunities to work on real-world research and creative projects.

Making a Better Montana

Growing up in a rural community, I have just really fallen in love with working in a rural hospital setting… I definitely think my time at MSU, as well as my time at medical school, will help me give back to rural communities.
