Parking: There are three parking places on campus. All of them fill up between the time of 9am-11am, and do not clear out till 1-2pm. We have had a huge increase in the attending class sizes and with it the parking has not been updated for it, so spots fill up early and quickly. If you come on a weekend or afternoon you will have plenty of spots to pick from, but the early classes are what fills up the parking lot fast. Tickets are handed out parking in the fountain spots, visitor spots, and so on. They are not too badly priced usually the first one will be $25.00 or a warning.

Weather: Weather does not really affect campus experience. Class and everything else goes on besides if it snows. Since we have a lot of commuters if it snows generally classes are canceled for student and faculty/staff safety.

Campus Housing: The have renovated almost all of the dorms. What I have seen of them they look fantastic! The dorms are one of the best places to meet people. The dorms floors to alternate between girls and boys besides the center dorms which are co-ed and 2SE, which is also co-ed. The prices of the dorms are a bit expensive, but you only have to wake up 5 minutes before class and I guarantee you will still make it there on time. The social atmosphere can be found in the lounges of the dorms where people play games and watch movies, but again during weekends almost everyone goes home. The housing process is super easy, you fill out a form and they will get back to you where you live.

Health & Safety: The police here take their job seriously. They are very nice, and are happy to help when ever someone needs something. If there is a threat you can count on them to act fast and efficiently. They always make the students feel welcome and when ever we are even just scared to walk alone to our car at night one of the officers are more than happy to walk us there. I have gone jogging a couple times at past when the gym has closed and a couple of the officers have stopped me to see what I was up to and to check to see if I was okay. I appreciate the safety concern that they have here at this campus for their students.

Computers: There are a ton of computers on campus. We have 4 computer labs down stair in Seton, so finding a computer is easy. The printers cost .05 every page you print. The problem comes when the printers do not print and you are charged, your money is not returned to you. The printers at this school work on and off but it is like any other electronic device. The wifi is availably almost everywhere besides the parking lots or by the tennis courts.

Nightlife: I am not a partier by any means. I do know that this campus does not have parties on campus. If you are looking for a nightlife you have to go off campus. There is pulse night club just an exit away where people 18 and above can go and dance. If you are 21 and up you can go downtown to the bars. There is no transportation from the college besides the bus that will take you downtown Cincinnati.

Campus Dining: The dining options on campus was terrible. They have worked on it a lot in the past year and that's why I gave it an okay. We have two main dining places on campus. The Harrington center, and the dining hall in Seton. The Harrington Center has the same food everyday, it contains wraps, quesadillas, salads, hamburgers, hotdogs, etc. It is not a bad option for someone who is tired of the Dining Hall food or is trying to eat healthy. The Dining Hall in the Seton center is a buffet type with different choices each day. There is a sandwich stand, and two or three main dishes to eat. The vegetarian options are very poor, only one food option a day. They have multiple desserts though. Both of these eating places are extremely expensive. If you want to each one time at the Dining Hall your looking at $7.50 or a dollar less for a meal at the Harrington center. IF you live on campus you are required to buy the meal plans which run week to week and if you don't use all your meal plans in a week you lose that money, or at the end of the semester if you do not use all your flex money you lose all of that money. Most people on campus do not use all their meal plans or flex dollars. You can only flex friends in and cannot use any of your extra meal plans in a week toward paying for someone's meal.

Guys & Girls: Honestly there is a huge diversity here for such a small campus. You the typical stereo-type groups of people, but here they all talk and interact with each other. It doesn't matter what you dress like or what group you were in with high school. Everyone here dresses differently, but I think what connects us again is that we all have in common that we are Hard working on diverse things. One person could be hard working on their athletics, another with school but they will still interact because we share the common bond here of working hard toward our goals no matter what it is. Most people dress casually for class but we have a bit of everything on campus.

Majors: I am a Biology major, and am in love with the program we have here. I started out a nursing major but if I could start all over I would start in Biology. Every teacher you meet here are extremely passionate about what subject they teach, and that gets everyone excited to learn about the topic. I have yet to meet a teacher who was not passionate about he course that they were teaching here. The Biology teachers I have grown very close with and am blesses every day that they are and have been apart of my college career. They each push me, challenge me, and look out for me when it comes to my future goals and my education. I am hope to go to Graduate school for either medical research or field research and all of my professors have taken their time to discuss with me about my options. Dr. Kritsky has personally taken his time to help me figure out what I want to do and where I want to apply.

Majors: The Biology program is amazing! Every single class is taught by a professor who is passionate about he subject. It has been a lot of work but the things you will learn will amaze you. I have learned so much from only being in the program 2 years and wish even with the work load that I would of started in it. Every Science class you have you will have a lab that goes along with it, that will give you hands on experience. In Entomology class we had a lab where we had to collect bugs and ID them. Now when I go out on a walk I still find myself ID the bugs that I see, or applying knowledge that I have learned in my other classes. Every professor in this program will be more than happy to take you on if you want to do a research project to work with them, or have your own idea. It has been a lot of work and studying but it is all worth it.

Drug Safety: Everyone on this campus like I have said before is there doing their own things, seeking their own future. We all are taught in our classes even that we are all human, I think that's why we are all so open with each other. I have been to parties before but I am the DD for all of my friends. No one looks at you weird, you may be offered drugs/alcohol but no one cares if you do or do not do them. If you say no, they won't treat you any differently. As for the usage, this is a college campus there will be people who are going to use drugs. It's hardly notable on campus, and 99.9% of parties and usage are off campus. This is a wet campus so people who are 21 may have drinks in their rooms, but someone under 21 cannot be in their room if they do have alcohol.

Diversity: This college has an extreme diversity in economic status, political/religious beliefs. I was afraid first going to this school that is would be nothing but people with the Catholic belief. I am Christian, but am not labeled under a certain belief and was afraid that I would be shunned for it. Also I am from a poorer family, so my fear of not being accepted by the people attending the private Catholic school with me was great. Being at the college for 3 years now I realize I had nothing to fear. Become come from all different type of walks of life, in fact that is a big thing they teach at this college; that we most except everyone, look at the world from their eyes, they are human and so are we. The teacher and the students are very open to who ever joins the campus. I will say their is slightly more girls than guys on campus but in classes it's hardly noticeable.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Getting aid at this school is a smooth process. Even if you get lost there are people who are more than willing to talk to you and go throw the process with you. On top of things if you need more aid than you receive they have special forms you can fill out, and will even point you in the direction of scholarships that you can apply for that are based off of you.

College Senior

Greek Life: There are not Greek lifes on this campus. I think it helps connect the campus by not having one personally. Greek life from what I have seen divide campus even more, your either apart of one or your not. At the mount everyone is a student seeking their own interests, there's no Greek life to divide us.

Overall Experience: College of Mount St. Joseph has changed me for the better. As cheesy as it sounds I would pick this school all over again. It is the school you want to go to if you want to know everyone on campus, become familiar with you teachers, and even become involved. The teachers here go out of their way to help you understand concepts, or to even reach your future goal. They believe in every single one of their students. I have had issues in the past with my health and my teachers have done everything in their power to keep me caught up while giving me the time I need to heal. All of my teachers are interested in what is going on with my life, and help me with my future goals of grad school. Not only are the teachers wonderful the students are too. The small class size may seem a little high-schoolish to some people but I you will get to know almost everyone in this school. It is not a school where you drown in the 100's of other students. You become a Mount Family. When something happens to one of our students we all feel it, and are there to support each other. Yes, the school may lack a bit in location but it makes up with it for the personal experience you receive there.

Transportation: The campus in the past has tried to have campus shuttle buses that take students to Kroger and other places they may need on the weekends. If you try to catch the bus you must look up the schedule, but prices are generally not too bad you can by a month bus pass that will save you quite a bit of money. If you do not feel like waiting around for the bus for hours I suggest you have a car on campus. During the weekends a lot of the residences leave and go home. Having a car on campus just makes it easier and faster to travel from one place to the other.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The are apartments that can be found all over 7-15 minutes away from the campus. The pricing depends on what you are looking for, but there is a great range or qualities in each. I lived off campus for about a year in Delshire and the landlord was always pleasant to me; if anything went wrong with appliances you could call the office and they would take care of it for you. There are always enough parking spots, and even if you have to park on the road its only a short distance to the apartments. There is a small grocery store that is within walking distance.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The college is only located 15minutes away from downtown Cincinnati. It is a great place to go shopping at or grab a bite to eat, but lacks in activity's for the weekend for someone under 21.
