School Spotlight: Montana Tech

Montana Tech

I became interested in the college admissions process after serving as a student tour guide in the admissions office of my alma mater. After graduating, I accepted an admissions counseling position at Bennington College in Vermont where I evaluated applications and reviewed art portfolios from students across the country. Three years later, after pursuing my master's degree in New York City, I joined the admissions staff at Barnard College where I served as a senior admissions officer. At Barnard, I directed Long Island and Boston recruitment in addition to managing the College's alumnae interview program, coordinating admissions statistics, and editing various college publications. Having also served as an alumni interviewer for Dartmouth College and visited over 75 colleges, I feel especially well-equipped to help students prepare for admission interviews and campus tours.

There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. And while the media tends to focus on just a handful of schools, we at College Coach encourage students to think outside the box during their college selection process and explore a wide range of colleges. As such, we are highlighting a new college each week in our School Spotlight series. Check out the college below, along with the other posts in our series, and you may just stumble upon your dream school! School Spotlight: Montana Tech  Butte, MT There aren’t many places in the country where you can earn your BS degree in geophysical, metallurgical, mining, or petroleum engineering. But at Montana Tech, a student-oriented public institution located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, students can major in all these fields and more. Montana Tech is a leader in science, technology, and engineering, attracting students from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As most of the school’s academic programs focus on STEM fields, it should come as no surprise that Montana Tech’s 1,150 undergraduates are especially career-minded. And with job placement rates in the mid-90s, there’s no reason they shouldn’t be! To aid students on their paths to success, Montana Tech offers strong research and internship programs, including an opportunity for students to pursue extended co-op programs to further enhance their résumés. Whether you want to experience the great outdoors, join a dance club, or play sports (the Diggers compete in the NAIA conference), Montana Tech has you covered. Good to know: Students residing in an eligible western state (including AZ, CA, and WA) pay 150 percent of in-state tuition.
