MSU- Nothern, Havre

Anyone have any info or opinions on this school. Currently I go to CWU in Ellensburg, WA and long story short, I hate it and don't really like the program at all.
A buddy told me about MSU-N and it sounds pretty much exactly what I was looking for. If I switch there I'd do the 4yr Diesel program.

Aunt in MT says most everybody that finishes the dsl program comes out with a job all ready.
But not sure with how things are in the job market now.
Dad went there yrs ago and it was good.

I'm most interested in the 4yr diesel program and maybe do a some business/management classes too just for extra knowledge and resume booster. Also I want to get out of Washington and Montana's always been high on the list of possible places to live.

I live in Havre, and MSUN is a very good technical school with a lot of good professors. The Railroad is always hiring along with many other opportunities for diesel Techs. They have a Ford training program, you can get the certificate and go work for Ford the next day. Good luck!

I've liked everything i've heard about MSUN. I planning on going to MSUN for the 4 year diesel degree. I have a question for you guys that are students, How do you all keep your trucks from freezing in the parking lots? do you all have plugins in the parking lots?

My vehicles have block heaters, but I own gassers, so they aren't as troublesome as diesels. One of my friend's boss just leaves his truck running all night.
