Montreat College has a beautiful campus! They have a very secure and safe location and all stone built sparkling buildings built in the 1930's (they sparkle due to the mica mineral present). For a fond outdoors person it is ideal! There are plenty of great hikes all walking distance away.

Montreat also has a great community between students, faculty, staff and non-student residents! This is means for a great social network that helps give you a better advantage in the 'real world'

AND for being a small school, Montreat takes pride in their many available studies and educational opportunities for students! The college's motto is 'Christ centered, Student Focused, and Service Driven'- and that is exactly what the strive for.

It's not a perfect place, but it certainly makes a perfectly pleasant home.

NAZI FACTORY – Strictest place I've ever been too! And I visited Warsaw!
First, you can get into trouble for literally any thing. If there is a rumor about you, the administration will call you in. You can't say anything negative or critical about the college in the college newspaper. If you do drugs on campus, you will most likely get caught, and get handled over to the police. The college doesn't give chances they give you over to the police straight away so you have disciplinary probation (do 25 hours of community service and if you screw up again your kicked out) and then have to deal with the legal aspect. Pranks are generally looked down and the police have been called in for harmless things. One kid got in trouble while doing his laundry, an RA called the RD cause supposedly he smelled pot and made a big deal out of it, and the kid was like straight edge lol.

A Challenging Process – Well, whenever you deal with large amounts of money its never really an easy process. Montreat works with a lot of scholarships and grants. Normally its not as bad as it seems at first with Federal grants and Montreat scholarships, but there always seems to be some sort of complication. The great thing about this is the Montreat Financial Aid is willing to help you figure out a plan and help you get sorted right away so you can enjoy the finer areas of the college. Montreat also has a lot of anonymous donors who donate money to help the students randomly. Advice: be patient! Don't lose hope because with God all things are possible!
