As a double major in Natural Horsemanship and Business Administration, Dawson says that UMW’s block schedule proved vital when trying to balance classwork, internships, and his social life. “Experience One really gives you that hands-on learning approach that I was looking for. I feel more prepared to pursue a horsemanship or business career because I’ve gotten so much real-world experience.”

Ava Nelson

The support and constructive feedback received at Montana Western, in the form of one-on-one time with professors, is what first inspired Ava to pursue a career in writing. “Working as a writer covering university news in the UMW Communications Department, combined with my degree, gave me the instant opportunity to work for the River Press, a newspaper in Fort Benton, Mont., right after graduation. UMW supported my goals by giving me the tools and unique experience I needed to excel in journalism and writing.”
