In the Heart of the Rocky Mountains!
Bozeman is a small town with big energy. Perhaps best known for outdoor recreation, Bozeman also has the cultural amenities of a much larger city including a symphony, opera, and ballet companies, as well as many locally-owned shops, restaurants and galleries that make Downtown vibrant.
Two world-class ski resorts, Big Sky and Bridger Bowl are minutes from town. Hiking, camping, biking, climbing, and fishing options are endless because Bozeman is surrounded by five mountain ranges including the Bridger, Tobacco Root, Big Belt, Gallatin and Madison ranges; plus, the famous blue-ribbon fly-fishing rivers of the Gallatin, Madison, and Yellowstone are all within a half hour of campus. There is plenty of National Forest land to explore, and Yellowstone National Park is just 90 miles away.
