“I’m so much more grateful to be here this year where we can actually be here in person and be face to face classes it makes a huge difference,’ said John Shelton, student at UM.

“Opportunities that um has I think it comes through in the college tour video just how many different perspectives and cultures kind if collide here even though I don’t think that’s when many people think of in Montana,” said Addie Slanger, a journalism student at UM.
