University of Montana, Missoula was
Labeled the most scenic campus in America
by Rolling Stone. The University of
Montana (also referred to as "the U", "U
of M", and "UM") was founded in 1893 and
today is the flagship campus of the
University of Montana system. It is
renowned for its research, fine arts,
economic development and prowess in
producing Rhodes Scholars, in addition to
Udall Scholars, Goldwater Scholars and
Truman Scholars.

The university traces its roots back to
1881, when Congress dedicated 46,000 acres
for it. The first set of buildings went up
in 1895, and today landmarks include the
Oval (the school's traditional center),
the "M" hiking trail, which runs
three-quarters of a mile above campus, and
Memorial Row, two columns of evergreen
trees planted in 1919 to honor those who
died in World War I.
