There’s a reason it’s known as the ‘Big Sky Country.’

Montana has approximately 38 million acres of public land, 170,000 miles of rivers and 3,200 lakes to its name. It’s an outdoors enthusiast’s dream.

Great Falls, home base for the University of Providence campus, is a mid-sized town (pop.58,876) with a laid-back pace. You’ll be free to relax, take in the scenery and connect with your values.

Outdoor Recreation in Montana

University of Providence’s campus is minutes away from some of the best outdoor experiences, and thanks to Montana’s four seasons, you can stay active outside year round. Take a hike or go for a bike ride down the nearly 60-mile River’s Edge Trail system. Float down the Missouri River. Experience some of the best fly-fishing in North America. Shred the slopes at Showdown Ski Area, just a short hour’s drive away.

Prefer to admire the scenery indoors? Enjoy the city’s live entertainment scene – concerts, symphony shows, Broadway shows, auctions, dances – and historical and cultural attractions, including art and history museums. Great Falls is home to 10 museums including the famed C.M. Russell Museum, billed “The Art and Soul of the American West,” and the First People’s Buffalo Jump, one of the largest prehistoric sites in the United States.

If you’re a sports fan, Great Falls has auto racing, rodeos — including the Montana PRCA Rodeo Circuit Finals each January — basketball, baseball and hockey games, among other events to take in throughout the year.
