University of Montana Employee
in Missoula, MT

"The position I worked at involved setting up a PerfSONAR machine so that we could monitor the network between the Fire Labs in Missoula and the University of Montana. I do recommend the professor I was working for, but I do not recommend the President of the University of Montana. He has placed too much of an emphasis on sports instead of the true goals of education."

University of Montana Employee
in Missoula, MT

"My role as a Teacher Assistant at the University of Montana was offered to me when I was accepted as a Master's Candidate in Computer Science at the University of Montana. The professors and staff at the department are kind and supportive. I would recommend pursuing a Master's over there. I do not recommend the President (CEO) of the University of Montana. Ever since he has been in office there has been the Griz scandal and there is a lack of focus on the students at the University of Montana. It's a bummer George Dennison retired."
