2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school is very strict for alcohol and drugs but if you get a parking ticket you can usually get out of it.

Off-Campus Housing: In Emmitsburg there's houses and apartments. There is always enough parking for the people that live there but if you have a party the cops usually come and make everyone move their cars. A lot of the neighbors call the cops to break up parties too. Some students choose to live in Thurmont which is a bit further away but they have more options.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a McDonald's, a Subway, a grocery store, and 2 pizza places in town, which is still a 5 minute car ride away. 15 minutes away is a Chinese food place and a Sheetz. The Chinese food place delivers to campus though. 30 minutes away includes many more options in Frederick or Gettysburg.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I was not challenged by my classes at my school. I took calculus my first semester and then the next semester I had to take a liberal arts requirement called Math Thought and Problem Solving, which was the same math I had in 5th grade. The facilities are small but they have what you need to get your degree. The professors work on research projects and use some of the students to help them. They encourage people to come up with their own projects for their senior project.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The liberal arts program at this school is very long. You take 45 credits of liberal arts, including 2 philosophy classes, 2 theology, 2 language, math, writing, and more.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: This is a very safe school. The first month of my freshmen year all of the stoners got kicked out because they have a no tolerance policy. Everyone knows that its for our protection, but sometimes it feels like the RAs and Public Safety are out to get you. They allow alcohol but only for 21 year olds and they put a sticker on your door to remember who is 21. Members of the opposite sex are not allowed in your room past 12 on the weeknights and 2 on the weekends. A lot of people get written up for breaking that rule.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I played on a varsity team and it was a good experience for me. We were terrible but I had a lot of fun getting to know my teammates and it helped me make friends. The rugby team is really good and they went to nationals. The basketball team won the NECs this year and went into the first 4. The athletic teams are relevant because they host all of the parties on campus. During the spring season there are no parties to go to because all of the teams have practice on the weekends.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: A large percentage of the Mount students are athletes so sweatpants are a common trend for both boys and girls. No one dresses up that much for parties. The first party I went to I dressed up with some other freshmen in belly shirts and we were the only ones with less than a usual tank top on. A bunch of people have boyfriends or girlfriends but people don't usually just hookup because the school is so small and everyone knows if you do.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Mount St. Mary's is a small school and there is no Greek Life. The possible party houses are baseball, lacrosse, and rugby, which usually all get busted before midnight. Those are the only three houses to party at and none of the teams have parties during the season. Sometimes people have casual pre games that you can turn into a party by telling a random person and then all of the freshmen show up. All parties are too far off campus to walk and finding a ride is difficult.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most guys at the Mount have pretty decent heads on their shoulders. They either have high morals and do a good job sticking to them or at least try to stick to them. It's not too hard to find a date-able, decent guy.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The campus is constantly being kept up on its outer appearance. Not a season goes by that you don't see people out painting, planting, or cleaning. We also make a big effort to be green and it has been working out well. One of the greatest qualities about the Mount is its appearance and aesthetics!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This school really attempts to make going there affordable considering its high cost. Everyone in my class received some form of financial aid, and the process was hassle-free but it is still a very costly school to attend.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are few options because the Mount is in the middle of no-where. Delivery is more convenient for those without cars but there are a selection of 2 to 3 places that really deliver to the Mount. Other than that a car is necessary to eat out.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life does not exist at the mount. Disregard my answers above...

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing situation is great for the most part. Most facilities are newly refurbished and are spacious and welcoming, but rule enforcement is rather ridiculous. The RA and DA system can be somewhat suffocating at times and the rules regarding opposite genders being on floors together past certain hours is old fashioned.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors always range from good to bad, but overall I would say the Mount has an excellent teaching staff.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Mount puts a lot of effort into making a degree "count". That is they offer many opportunities to hep students become employed during their time at school and after graduation.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not involved in off-campus living so I do not know much about it. I have visited some off-campus houses, and they seem very nice.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The basketball team is fairly important to students, but other than that there isn't much student involvement in the athletic area.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There isn't a whole lot of diversity but where there is, I don't see any sort of discrimination or intolerance.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus!

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It is a hit or miss with the academics and the professors, either you get treated well or not well at ALL...

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration is not good AT ALL…I got kicked out of a course because I was "one of the last 5 people to sign up", that being said, we were assigned registration times and I was the last group (because it was alphabetically). I should not have been ripped out of a course against my control especially paying the money we do.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Again- have not seen much, only parking tickets but that does not mean there is not more.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I have never had an issue with the campus strictness nor have I heard of anything BUT that does not mean that there is not any.
