DILLON — Beth Weatherby loves her job. She is the Chancellor of Montana Western in Dillon and she tells Montana This Morning’s Chet Layman that she likes that the school is a one-of-a-kind.

Weatherby says the schools Experience One curriculum plan is what makes it so special. She says taking just one class at a time, for a couple hours each day, for a few weeks makes for a better learning experience for students. She also notes that Experience One allows students to take time off campus to learn more hands-on than can be accomplished in 50 minutes in a classroom. Because of this program, Montana Western offers fields of study not found anywhere else. Natural Horsemanship and Scientific Glassmaking are just two of those unique fields of study.

Weatherby also noted that the Board of Regents will be meeting in March on the Montana Western Campus. She says she’s looking forward to sharing the Dillon campus with representatives of the other Montana schools. That meeting takes place the first week in March.
