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 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Its okay, the liberal arts are a big part of the Mount. Some professors are more difficult than others and they all will make you question your decision at some point but stick with it. (I am a rising senior - 2015! I know).

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Small school, small classes, better relationship with professors/staff. Professors and staff actually want you to succeed you are not viewed as a number but a person whose goals are important.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are many clubs that you can join for the specific major. You also get to meet a lot of people who are interested in the same things you are and want the same stuff. The course load is not that difficult and the professors are nice.
