A small catholic college located on the beautiful Hudson River.The college is located in Newburgh in the mid-Hudson Valley region of New York State. It was founded in 1960 by the Dominican Sisters. The campus gives you a feeling like a fairly close school community.

Mount St Mary College has a wonderful Nursing program available to prospective students. The college campus is breathtakingly beautiful and over looks the Hudson River. Mount St Mary provides a great education to prepare students for their futures in their career paths.
Academic Rigor
The courses introduced here at Mount St Mary are difficult and challenging but are nothing more than necessary for our futures. The Mount challenges students to succeed in all of their courses and provide help to any student who is in need.

Dorm life here at Mount St Mary is great. They offer many different styles of living including 2 person rooms, triple rooms, 4 person suites, and 6 person suites.

The Mount is the place to be for students eager to expand their knowledge in open and small orientated classrooms. Where you are given the chance to actually connect and receive a well rounded relationship with your professors and the campus as well. Mount St. Mary's College is just an incredible place to find yourself in a spiritual, personal, and educational level with a great back bone of faculty , student programs , and many other resources.
Academic Rigor
Small classes, one on one interactions with professors, and free tutoring resources , all available for every mount student to improve on their academics. The ISEA program allows students to receive a look at the upcoming years and classes for their desired majors. Academic excellence is a most at the mount!
Dorm Life
I have always been a commuter throughout my experience at the Mount. The shuttle rides are very convenient for those trying to save time and gas money. As well as the parking prices and system at the campus is easy to apply for.
Food and Dining
There is always a variety of plates to explore created by talented cooks. The variety expands from a traditional hamburger to the global feast. Everything is made with the freshest ingredients possible.
What to do for fun
The school does provide a trans shuttle that allows students to visit the third street promenade in Santa Monica. There are many other activities at the campus that many different clubs organize to get the entire school involved. Other then that one can always go to fitness center for a good workout.

Am learning a lot
I'm a nursing major at MSMC and the first year was SO difficult. I had to learn how to manage my time really efficiently to get everything done. The more I studied, the more I realized how much I was actually learning unlike high school. The information actually stuck with me since my teachers actually wanted to teach and that made me want to learn.
Am enjoying being here
I absolutely love the Mount. It really is the perfect school for me. It's not a big school at all so if you're looking for a college that you see the same faces all the time and it feels like home, this is it.
Bang for the buck
The downside to MSMC is that it's very expensive because it's a private college. I do feel like I'm getting my money's worth but it would be nice if it wasn't that expensive.
Tips for prospective students
Visit MSMC before choosing to go there, visiting made me 100% sure that it was the right school for me. You can do spend-a-day's with your intended major and go to all their classes with them, it's actually really fun. If you are planning on living on campus you can also do an overnight trip and sleep in a freshman dorm with someone and see how college life really is.

Mount Saint Mary is a college that allows its students to be comfortable in their own skin. With its assortment of clubs, sports, and intramural activities, there's a place for everyone. Its environment took away any nerves that I still had about college.
Tips for prospective students
Joining a club, sport, or intramural sport is the best way to get out of the dorm and make new friends. Don't stay indoors and play on your laptop.
Academic Rigor
If you choose to challenge yourself, you can take professors with a better reputation for challenging his/her students. There is also an Honors program with classes specifically meant to challenge bright minds.
Dorm Life
RAs live in the halls with all of the other students, and they are great for going to with problems. It's a family environment.
Food and Dining
Sodexo tries there hardest to have a diverse option of foods on different days of the week. Sometimes, they make absolutely delicious dishes. Other times, it's a miss. None the less, everyday, there are constants such as burgers and pizza.
What to do for fun
The club fair is the place to be. Not joining any sort of club can be the biggest mistake a freshman can make. There are plenty of club events, not to mention Student Government has, at the very least, a Saturday event for those who don't feel like going to parties.
Bang for the buck
I don't understand.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
A performance of Rocky Horror Picture Show in October is a constant tradition for the drama club at Mount Saint Mary College.
Great for these types of students
Anyone and everyone.
Clubs and Activities
I have had a great experience with plenty of clubs such as Different Stages (the drama club), Anime club, Academic club, ping pong intramural, ultimate frisbee intramural, and plenty more. I can never get enough.
Greek Life
Nonexistent.
Campus Safety
The campus is exceptionally safe. Michael O'Keefe, the head of security, does a great job keeping everyone safe. He also sends a great message explaining that as good as he is at his job, only we can decide how safe we are by making responsible decisions.
