“If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.” –Margaret Thatcher
Saturday mornings are what I like about Great Falls. On Saturdays, I wake up and make my way to one our cute little coffee shops downtown. After, I go thrifting and antiquing, which both are a sport to me. I end my Saturday with a walk, or a bike ride, at a park or along the Missouri river. I dream about Saturday mornings in Great Falls.
From the moment I stepped on the UGF campus, as a student almost six years ago, I knew this is where I belonged. The faculty and staff are inviting and endlessly helpful. As a Freshman, the older students always made sure that I kept myself busy and that I was making friends. I found my nooks around campus and made them my place of study and before I knew it UGF became “home”. When I graduated I missed UGF, so I came back and got a job that allowed me to tell others what a great university this is.

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” - By Robert Brault.
After growing up in Great Falls and then moving away for 20 plus years, I felt really at home coming back. I love the small town feel and enjoy the opportunities that Great Falls has to offer. I enjoy the outdoors and get to experience the different seasons here.
I love working at the University of Great Falls because of its small size and personal attention that is given to each student. I love the history and the potential that the university has to offer. The staff, faculty and students always make me feel welcomed and are always available if needed.

My family and I are new to Great Falls and Montana and enjoy exploring the region. So far some of our favorite places include Gibson Park, the River's Edge Trail, the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and historic downtown.
The University of Great Falls is a place where students can discover possibilities in themselves that they might not at another school, through experiences like the freshman camping trip, service in the community, spiritual reflection and faculty mentoring.

"Life is short-- smile while you still have teeth!"
I grew up around the Great Falls area, and I can honestly say that once a person experiences Great Falls it is almost impossible to leave. I love the outdoor activities like camping, fishing, or just going on a walk on the River’s Edge Trail. Also, whenever I go to dinner or an event, I see someone from the people connections that I have created. Great Falls is not a disconnected city to me, but a community of support and adventure!
As a May 2014 graduate, I know that the University of Great Falls is an exceptional school. As a student and now an employee, I am connected to the university on a personal level. UGF becomes more like a family instead of a university. Also, UGF prepares you for after graduation when real life becomes a factor. The University of Great Falls creates achievers and people who make a difference in the world.

"You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated." - Maya Angelou
I appreciate the numerous sunny days in Great Falls. I enjoy venturing out to Ryan’s Dam Island Park for a picnic, running on the River’s Edge Trail, and camping and hiking in the Little Belt Mountains in the summer. The Christmas Stroll downtown is my favorite downtown event. It is always nice to see such a vibrant event in the middle of winter.
The University of Great Falls has a very welcoming feel from the first moment you step onto campus. The people; faculty, students, and staff, are eager to greet new faces and share their experiences with you. I especially like the interactions and collaborations from differing groups on campus that you will not find anywhere else.

I enjoy boating with friends in the summer months. I'm also a huge baseball fan, so whenever I can get out to a Voyagers game then that's always a good thing. Other than that, just enjoying the overall beauty of Montana, Great Falls in general spending as much time outdoors as possible. They don't call Montana the "Last Best Place" for no reason. It's BEAUTIFUL here in the 406.
As a graduate of the University of Great Falls and not being a Montana native, I know firsthand how welcoming UGF can be from top to bottom. I love the fact that UGF truly is a family atmosphere, where people actually care about your wellbeing. Everyone here on campus is here for the same reasons, we all want to see our students reach the highest of their potential and strive for excellence along the way.

"I've got a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell!" - Bruce Dickenson
The Great Falls community constantly has something going on. I take full advantage of the vibrant social events, delicious local restaurants, and limitless outdoor activities.
Its people and its potential. As a graduate of the University of Great Falls, I can honestly say that our faculty, staff, and students are truly a family. The neat thing is that the University of Great Falls is continuously evolving and offers countless opportunities for students academically and socially.
