Bozeman must have changed for the better then. When I was living there it was pretty unpleasant to be a student. Maybe some of those slumlords finally got shut down.

It used to be a cowboy town...NOT anymore, Bozeman is pretty liberal and getting worse. I have lived here for almost 6 years and will be going back to Utah where it is very conservative simply because I am tired of the yuppy/lib vibe in Bozeman. If you are looking for conservative in Montana, I would say Butte is your best bet for college or maybe Helena, but Bozeman is now one of those places where America came to die (chock full of idoits/libs), so I would avoid it if that's not what you are looking for.

I disagree with Placefacts. I also, like a previous poster, think it is a good balance between the two. I like that you see a car with an Obama sticker waiting to pick up the kid from school in front of a pickup with an elk in the bed collecting their child. You see hunters in camo at the grocery store (my husband) standing next to retirees in sweater sets who moved here from Arizona to help take care of grandkids. The schools are good (and having the university helps raise the tone) but it is still very outdoorsy. We are members of the gun range, and at work probably 1/3 of the staff are NRA members while the other 1/3 are in favor of Obamacare and the other 1/3 don't care either way. I like being able to get some organic foods and also ammo for my rifle easily. People don't antagonize each other, which (as a Libertarian) is how I would like it ideally - everyone doing their own thing and feeling free to do so.

As for students - occasionally they get drunk. But, I've been around other student areas, and they are generally better behaved here. They are also hugely employed around here (often you are asking your server or the girl in the clothing store what she is studying), and people support the university as it brings good things to the area. However, if you want conservative, try Havre or Dillon for school.

Would you say Bozeman is more Libertarian than generic Republican/Democrat?
