4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Students at the college are very open in expression especially through their clothing and slang. Rarely is one made fun of by another student for style of clothing, it is a very diverse school with many different styles but it seems to be accepted throughout campus. Instead of singling out someone whom seems "different" it seems that they are accepted and everyone really "meshes" as one

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The security and res-life is very strict on their policies which is good for the campus as a whole. The college has a very low rate on crimes committed and for the two years that I have been there I have not heard of any sexual assault mishaps within campus. I feel safe walking around campus at all times of the day

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There isn't much of a large Greek life on campus, however the biology majors/club is trying to work on being part of Manhatten college Greek life since the school is nearby.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Manhattan is a half hour train ride away. City life is beautiful, especially Christmas time.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I have applied for so many scholarships and I am having a hard time finding money for the school but I love the school so I try my best.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus apartments are pretty nice but they can be very expensive.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: I have no idea about any Greek life at my school to be honest.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are always computers available 24/7 however sometimes the wifi is hard to connect to in the dorms

3 College Junior

Nightlife: The nightlife at my school is okay its cool that everyone knows each other, gut its frustrating that there are never any new people to meet.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Life on campus is what you make it. The dorms are not top of the line and pretty small considering the price but they are clean and okay.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are not a whole lot of problems with health and safety at my college and when there are security is always quick to come.

3 College Junior

Majors: Since it is a private college there are not a lot of choices for majors. However the department chairs of every major are extremely helpful

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to eat of campus and many different ethnic places. Its in the Bronx so there are different cultures everywhere.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It is noticeable when students drink and smoke on campus, however there is a strict policy when students are caught breaking the rules. This tends to not stop most of the students our age though because for some reason most of us feel invincible.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: We have many foreign exchange student here. This college is pretty diverse. African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Caucasians. You name it we go it! Orientation wise we are diverse as well. Most people who are homosexual are open about it and they aren't judged. Acceptance is all around this school.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people are pretty chill, lots of interesting characters for the most part everyone is nice. Looks aware usually the same(dress code wise) black leggings..uggs...north face fleece...and the typical college hoodies n sweat pants. Social life is okay... Not too many clicks but you'll know your friends really quickly. We do have couples that have met each other inside the school but for the most part most of my friends who are in a relationship date outside the college. Mostly nursing majors here, so less parting for us. This isn't the school for frat parties tho, 2-3 school parties a yr unless your Roomie throwing a party!

Off-Campus Dining: There is many places to order food from that will deliver and within a few blocks is dinners and fast food chains as well. Students seem to order often because we get tired of the same old same old cafeteria food.

Health & Safety: The campus is like its own world its super safe inside the campus that you forget the outside world dangers.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Most parties occur on thursday nights it gets a bit roady but everyone who attends seem to enjoy themselves.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I never really looked into it but have heard it is not bad, an average living on your own cost.

4 College Junior

Majors: Just talk to the head of the departments and professors of this school is one of the easiest and best things to do. Since we are a small school the professors have such an individual relationship with each of their students and truly care and help the students to stay in their program.

4 College Junior

Majors: Everyone is so caring for each other, advice, suggestions, and support are offered. I love being part of my Education program it is like a family

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol on campus has been increasing very semester.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Finical aid is hard to deal with especially if you are first generation college student in your family. The younger members are very helpful the older sisters become confused easily and do not answer your questions right away. However, Vanessa is one of the friendliest and helpful people to provide assistance with applying.

After a year of experience at the Mount, I am convinced that this institution is not for me. The small class sizes and close professor-student relationships are qualities that have met only some of my educational standards. Asides from their Nursing program, the Mount has not developed their other programs thoroughly. Some courses have even become a joke, which is the complete opposite of how I feel a college should be. After all, it is only natural to encounter struggles and difficulties throughout a college career. Therefore, passionate Business and Communications majors should not even consider this school. The reasons for this would be their poorly organized programs, unmotivated students, and lack of facilities and equipment. If I were given the opportunity to choose this school over again, unfortunately, I do not think I would.

The limited course options have also put a damper on my confidence in my future. Students are not offered enough variety to be well rounded in different areas, let alone one’s specific major. Again, asides from Nursing, I feel like I am not being prepared well enough. In comparison to other institutions, I believe that I am far behind in the development of my career. Sometimes, I even find myself envious of what other schools have to offer their students.

However, despite my negative feelings towards the Mount, I will always love the convenient size of the campus. Making friends, developing bonds, and getting attention from professors have never come so easily at a college. Not only has this benefitted my social life, but my academics as well. I have found that scheduling study parties and borrowing each others’ books are simple, and for the most part, it is something I have heard is difficult to do in larger institutions.

The College of Mount Saint Vincent is a relatively small school with a tight-knit community. Students can expect to be stopped by friends and classmates on the journey from their dorm rooms to class. However, because the campus is so tiny, some find it rather invasive. Privacy has become an issue for a lot of students here, especially when living on campus. But, with the right friends and good mindset, anyone can keep their private lives to themselves.
