What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
I would definitely recommend applying here! However, I would recommend applying to a few other less expensive schools, just in case the Mount cannot meet your financial need. That being said, there are many scholarship opportunities at the Mount. Definitely put this on your college search list!
Amanda from Westminster, MD
Don't apply to the Mount if you want a big school or if you can't be in a rural environment. There are plenty of ways to have fun on campus, but you have to take advantage of campus activities and be willing to be creative and make your own fun. If you can't do this, you'll be bored!
Jessica from Parkside, PA
It is small and there does seem like there is a lot to do but if you give a chance and a tank of gas you will find millions of activities to do. You just have to get creative. The Mount is amazing.
Fat M
Make sure you do an overnight visit or a day at the mount to get a feel for the school.
Junior, PA
Come visit the campus and take a tour. The students give the tours, so you can get a firsthand account on everything. Because if you are interested in going here, making a visit is the best thing you could do. Also, don't be afraid to email the Admissions office or Registrars and ask questions if you are not sure about something. They are all friendly and willing to answer anything.
Stephanie from Gwynn Oak, MD
Apply early. The Mount is a great school and very popular is all areas. Just make sure you're a pretty well-rounded student, cause everyone here seems pretty open to various types of activities.
Jennifer from Westminster, MD
Attend the orientation to get a head start on meeting classmates and making new friends. Join a club and/or organization to get involve with those people who are going to be part of your family over the next few years.
Lesley from Baltimore, MD
Apply early. As part of the freshman ambassador team, we have seen a increase of 50% in applications. Since we can only take in so many students, an early application with average qualifications will get in while a late application with outstanding qualifications may be wait-listed as there are no more spots available. Also, apply to more than just MSMU, apply big and small, far and near. You never know what the future holds.
Samuel from Middletown, MD
Always keep your keys and ID on your person, no matter where you are going.
Lock your door, and keep it that way, not for fear of the students, but out of the guests that may visit.
Constant, minor, upkeep is easier than one huge, labor intensive burst of cleaning.
Always keep checking on the status of any food brought into the room, you don't want it going bad!
Robert from Ijamsville, MD
