Loves Mount!
As a student transferring to a new school halfway through her sophomore year of college, I found Mount Union a tremendously easy school to fit into! I loved the atmosphere that made me feel at home, the friendly students, and the personal relationships with professors! I would recommend the University of Mount Union to any student looking for a school where you form close bonds with peers and professors, and always feel like you are of importance!

Great School! My visit was the ISH! Great people, great campus, great environment! Great education and SPORTS teams!
Brian from LUTZ, FL
it is a great place if you want to be part of a smaller size college that values your input to the university as a student. the campus is beautiful and you get the longest walk to one of your classes of 5 minutes. class sizes are small and professors are very willing to help you outside of class time.
