Overall Experience: I love my school! I can't imagine myself anywhere else! I am on the soccer team and love it. The school is in the mountains and the views are gorgeous. Also I cannot have picked a better place to grow in my relationship with God.

Overall Experience: It's made going to graduate school achievable!

Overall Experience: I'd never say Montreat is the best; it has its flaws like every school does, but I will admit it's amazing. We're in a mountain surrounded by nothing but nature, classmates, and God. It's a place of serenity, a place of fellowship, and a school all in one. The teachers are willing to go out of their way to help you and with the smaller classes it makes that a little bit easier. Montreat is a beautiful Christian college that is focused on making you into the best person you can be professionally and spiritually. I wouldn't pick another school ever with the fact I'll be a little over two hours away from home because im receiving a great education, meeting new people, and playing college lacrosse.

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus, but I have heard that things could be better regarding off campus living.

Off-Campus Dining: The food here is just okay, nothing special.

1 College Sophomore

Administration: This school is the definition of strict.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties are great, but never party on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process was definitely a headache. Do I have any tips for getting financial aid at my school? My tip would be to be prepared for a heartache and your entire day sitting in an office.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The cafeteria food is absolutely repulsive. There is no such thing as a "nutritious" meal at Montreat College.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. The dorms stay clean and kept. The best part of living on campus is the social aspect of it. I love being just a few doors down from my friends. The worse part is the cost to live in the dorms.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Expensive and hard to find.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: As an athlete, coaches make the sports extremely enjoyable.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Have been here a short time, but the school seems okay.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Asheville is a big town.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did NOT receive enough financial aid, but they worked as hard as they could to get me aid. Simply, there is not enough aid available.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is just like any typical private college.

5 College Junior

Academics: The Outdoor Education department is awesome. I have many opportunities to shadow,experience, and intern in the many different fields in outdoor education.

5 College Junior

Academics: As far as I know there are a lot of options at the school. Being a very small student body helps to enhance the student professor relationships.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is a very small and quiet school with a wonderful group of students and faculty. The personal relationships that the school promotes is outstanding. It has been great to go to a school that is not afraid to include Christianity and religion into the Educative experience. I am very pleased with the education that I have received this far, and will continue to attend this school until I complete my degree or until I have reached the level of education i am seeking.

Diversity: Montreat is a private Christian college but not everyone there is Christian. The school has a lot of international students as well as student from all over the US. Most of the students are accepting of others I am not really aware of the LGBT community but I am sure it is present. The cultural diversity is pretty obvious. There is a lot of different ethnicity and race diversity within the student body.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Some of the local places have great food. The restaurants that offer student discounts are not really advertising it but are there if you ask. overall cost is about average some are higher and some are lower. There are not too many fast food places and they are not very good.

4 College Junior

Parking: If you come to class early or live on campus finding a place to park is not too difficult. There are peak times when parking is a little hard to find but overall the parking is not bad and the location to classes is great.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
