Wow the honors that the U of M has received in it's history really makes you appreciate having this University in our State. 

According to a group called "The Center for World University Rankings," the University of Montana is the 604th best university in the world out of more than 22,000 degree-granting institutions of higher education. That means we are in the top 3%. The place of 604th doesn't sound great but it is when put it up against 22,000 other schools.

Eight indicators are used to compile the rankings: from quality of education and faculty to alumni employment and patents. Congrats U of M!
