The core curriculum along with the specific courses tied to my majors are challenging yet the professors make sure the students comprehend the information with before and after class assistance. There are tutors on campus to assist on a one-on-one basis as well. Out of the eleven classes I was able to take for the first year, six were in my major and minor fields of study, which is high for freshman at a liberal arts college. I will be able to earn my degree in three years if I work for it. The workload is just right, even with...

    Mount St. Mary's University is a strong, faith-filled and family-oriented community. As one of the smallest DI schools in the US, the Mount provides every Varsity and Club team with a Team Chaplain, who attends the adjoining Mount St. Mary's Seminary. Arriving on campus, one will immediately feel the warm welcome from all students and faculty and will be in awe of the beauty of the historic 200+ year old University.

    The Mount is close-knit community that promotes student achievement and involvement. It is a place where students can really learn about themselves and grow as young adults. The school not only produces academically successful students, but very well-rounded individuals.

    Beautiful campus, but not what they present themselves to be--they go for an Ivy League, classy image however they are far from it. Msmary has good student life and decent academics. Bloated administration, some extremely intelligent and vibrant teachers, and as clique-y as your high school probably was.

    Mount St. Mary's (otherwise known as the Mount) is located in a rural setting, 15 minutes south of Gettysburg, PA. Due to its small population and rural nature, the Mount is a very close-knit community, and many students there consider it home. There are tons of campus activities, and the campus activities board works really hard to ensure there is plenty to do, both on and off campus.

    This institution is beautiful first of all. The students are very nice and open to new students. The class sizes are small, so it is easy to obtain that close relationship with your professors.

    My four years at the Mount were magical. Everyone at the Mount is so wonderful and welcoming that it is impossible to not make friends and feel special at the Mount. The Mount was my home for four years and I miss it terribly.
