A very clean college with a well rounded selection of majors. The teachers are very interested and concerned with the learning of the students. A very open minded school
Shawn from Flintstone, MD
Mount Aloysius College is a school founded upon core values; mercy, service, justice, and hospitality. With such a small campus, the professors and staff are able to work with students to enhance their learning process. It is through their job enhancing my leadership skills that I would want to rate this college as one of the best!
Sara from Windber, PA
Mount Aloysius college has a beautiful campus. The instructors actually care about you and help you through the course. Also, the classes are small enough for the instructor to get to know you and take time to help in class.
