Guys & Girls: Most guys and girls on campus are athletic. A lot of people are always looking for things to do on the weekends, partying included. Most people are dating or talking to other people on campus. No set look or personality.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Mount Union is a beautiful campus and always looking to improve. The campus has a modern feel and almost every building has been renovated or is going to be renovated in the future (with the exception of the dorms). The campus and facilities are visually stimulating and the artwork around campus adds to the culture.

Diversity: There are quite a few international students at Mount Union, which has helped create communities of their own. You also have a lot of diversity with your professors coming from different ethnic, religious, or sexual orientation backgrounds. Mount Union promotes diversity and there really isn't a set student image at Mount.

Majors: Being a small school, your classes are also small. This allows for professors to get to know the students better. It's great in the sense that they'll be available to your needs and help tutor you through problems. The downfall, however, is if you skip class, your professor notices. It's easy to build a relationship with your advisor and they'll help you through a lot of your problems. The majors and academics are moderately difficult, but definitely passable. There are tutors available for almost every class and subject. I highly recommend asking around before taking professors to learn how they teach and see if they're likable.

Majors: Mount Union does a wonderful job at connecting internship and job opportunities to students. I personally have been connected to a summer internship in my desired major at a well known company. A typical day involves me working with my managers on projects and attending meetings.

Athletics: Obviously football is huge at Mount so it has a large following. Every Saturday, campus is alive with tailgaters, music, food, and a lot of people. The games are fun to go to, especially in the student section. The other sports, however, usually aren't as heavily attended by students. However, if a team is doing really well or has made it to playoffs, tons of students will go to the games and liven up the atmosphere. The MAAC, our athletic facility, is really nice and has a lot of options for working out.

Campus Dining: Although there's only one cafeteria and one cafe, Mount does a great job on variety. B&B cafe has awesome food for a great price. The cafeteria is hit or miss on the food, but the convenience is great. Since it's a small school, it isn't open 24/7 which can be a hassle sometimes.

Scholarships: Mount Union is a private school which gives them the ability to give as much financial aid possible without the perimeters of the state. If you tell Mount Union that you cannot afford to go there, but would love to, they'll find a way to get you more money. They also do a great job with connect you to on and off campus jobs!

Nightlife: You make your own fun at Mount. There is one bar in Alliance (Chives) that people go to. It's pretty packed on the weekends! Other than the bar, the fraternity houses and off campus houses have most parties on the weekends.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Alliance is kind of sketchy, so being off campus and living off campus is at your own risk. The houses aren't as nice as on campus housing, but the cost is worth it.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms have no air conditioning and are older, but there is a large part of community involved. As you get older, you get better dorms and even townhouses and apartments. The townhouses and apartments are new so they're very nice and have all amenities needed!

Majors: Getting into the school isn't all that hard as long as you did decent in high school. The only programs that are difficult to get into are the nursing and physician's assistant programs. Also, for the sororities a certain GPA must be maintained.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have absolutely no doubt that I will be able to get a job right out of college. Mount Union always prepares students well.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The cafeteria is awful. The food sucks and it's only open until 7pm. The B&B is awesome but not included in the meal plan, however the prices are pretty reasonable. The school is putting in a new cafe in the library over the summer so that will be nice for something to eat while studying..\

Health & Safety: There have been a few isolated incidents but I almost never feel concerned for my safety.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I could stay at Mount Union forever I would. I got a campus job that requires me to get to school 15 days early only so I can be back sooner. I also stayed a week after my classes were over because I never want to leave. Being at Mount is always the best because everyone is so genuine and it's such a great student community. I promise it's the best 4 years of your life here.

Nightlife: Freshmen all go to the frats. Most 21 year olds go to Chives (pretty much the only bar in Alliance). Everyone else usually goes to off-campus house parties, which are actually pretty fun. Some students go out 3 times a week, some not at all, but if you're trying to find a party on the weekend it's usually easy and because it's a small school you're bound to see friends out.

Majors: Mount Union has 88 majors and minors and is always growing. Every major's curriculum is carefully planned out as well. If you're looking at the physician's assistant program at Mount, I would highly recommend it. Even though it's only be established for a few years, the scores of Mount students on the national test far exceed most other PA schools.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Alliance is kinda shitty but Mount Union is basically it's own little community so we don't really associate with the 'townies'.

Athletics: The football team goes to the national championships almost every year so our school basically worships football. We also have great basketball, track, and lacrosse teams so if you're into sports Mount is a great place to be.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: If you wanna smoke weed, you'll find friends that do too, if not there are plenty of others that don't. Either way, it's pretty easy to find people with your same views on drug use.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It's just Ohio weather-- one day it's 75 and sunny and the next it's a blizzard. The chances of classes being cancelled for weather are slim to none though.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big, especially sororities, but if you don't join you'll probably still have a lot of greek friends. The sororities are not like at big schools at all-- there is no hazing, everyone has friends in other sororities, and your entire life is not dedicated to your sorority.

It may be cliché, but it's true: At Mount Union, you really are a name and not a number. The small size of campus makes it easy to meet people—professors, staff members, and other students—and to really find your niche. Students love the small class sizes, individual attention from professors, and the close-knit feel of campus. If you take advantage of opportunities like student organizations, study abroad, athletics, Greek life, and whatever else interests you, it won't be long before Mount ceases to be just a school and becomes a home. Like its students, the University is constantly striving to expand its own horizons, with new facilities, programs, and opportunities for growth that you won't find at other schools of its size. Mount Union graduates leave with great friends, amazing life experiences, and a strong education, and most go on to become successful and fiercely loyal alumni.

There are a handful of things Mount Union students would change about their college, but when it comes down to it, most of them would still choose Mount if they had to do it all over again. Sure, we'd all like more quesadillas in the dining hall, and it'd be great if there were more to do in Alliance, but those aren't the things that make or break the University. The atmosphere and feeling of community on campus is what brings students to Mount, keeps them there, and makes them Purple Raiders for life.
