What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
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.

A Fantastic blend of excellent scenery, community, faith, facilities, and discovery. This college holds exploration of the self, and studies very highly while mixing in a deep seated, faith guided studies with moral and thorough self examination. The Facilities are top notch, with much available, and most of it being new or updated, but it does have some issues such as the upkeep time.
