Glasgow is the county seat of Valley County with 3400 residents. Sitting on Montana’s hi-line, the major economy in Valley County is agricultural, including small grains, cattle, pulse crops, and hay. The abandoned Glasgow Air Force Base in St. Marie is an odd and eerie presence 20 miles north of town.


 

Student Perspectives:

It is hard to choose just one most worthwhile aspect of WRITE.  I think just all the hands-on experience I got is incomparable.
