The College of Mount Saint Vincent takes pride in its small classroom setting in which students and professors can easily interact. Although some may complain about the excessive attention they get from teachers, plenty of others find it beneficial to their academic careers. Professors even set aside office hours for anyone in need of more guidance. The extra help is often sought as a motive to do better and makes for a great GPA booster! Students also find that the small class sizes have helped them create close relationships with their fellow peers.
The College is especially popular for its intense nursing program, which integrates liberal arts and nursing theories in order to create successful nurses. It challenges all students interested in the field and really tests their dedication to nursing. Most students who come out of the program complain about the difficulty, but gradually they develop confidence in having a bright future. The Mount also provides more than 20 other programs for students to choose from; however, they are not as popular as nursing. Before graduating, each student is also required to complete the core curriculum, which is rigid and has limited options.
