1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: You are there for education. And education only. Spend your time wisely. Don't do anything to jeopardize your education

4 College Junior

College Junior

Transportation: The school is in a rual area so a car is important to get to town

4 College Junior

Computers: We have computers on campus; however, sometimes we do not have enough computers in the labs for all students in a class to use.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Howerton rooms are small and have mold. Davis rooms are bigger and cleaner, but the residents are louder.

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus police are a joke. Homeless man on campus walked into the women's dorm twice. Much theft all semester and the campus police still haven't solved the case, just charged someone after their disgruntled roommate made up lies. No evidence? No problem. School disciplinary hearings are a joke too!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Im at the Charlotte Campus an Charlotte has dinning to meet any budget or taste...

1 College Junior

Athletics: We do not have athletics at this locations. I wish we did because i would love to be in a caviler uniform for basketball or another sport.

5 College Junior

Transportation: The school is adequately located in the center of uptown and easy to access when you get into town. There is no transportation provided by the school .We are all adults and should be able to find our own way to school. If you can't get to school here you are out of luck.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: With only about 500 traditional students I would say that a large percentage are of the minority.

Montreat isn't just an education—it's an experience. The classes are informative, taught by knowledgeable faculty who truly care about the welfare of the students. The staff is helpful, as well. Before school starts, maintenance and housekeeping work full time to prepare the buildings for the students. Administrative staff makes sure Montreat is as welcoming an environment as possible for students, organizing a plethora of activities, including dances and service opportunities for both orientation and the rest of the semester—all while working to make sure students are properly registered. The campus counselor and nurse personally talk to students and their parents about health concerns, including handicaps, allergies, sports injuries, and the best way to manage any health problems while at school. The campus police patrol Montreat to ensure its safety, and the RDs organize meetings early in the semester to go over safety policies; the police come and meet the students so that students know who to look for on campus.

The College’s personal interest in each student’s success is amazing on both an institutional and individual level. When a student misses a class, it is not uncommon for the professor to follow up and make sure the student is OK. The faculty carefully organizes class schedules and curricula to maximize benefits to the students, often asking the students what they want to get out of the class and then helping them achieve those goals, even if it means a deviation from the original schedule. Montreat’s active interest in both the current and future success of students is otherworldly. Superhuman efforts by the staff and faculty have brought about benefits such as in-class writing tutors, internships, and incredible student trips that give students the best that Montreat can offer.
