5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is an awesome survey it really makes one consider the pros and cons of the school that they chose to go to.

Overall Experience: So far everyone at my University is really nice and helpful. The environment is a very healthy living environment and there's a lot of opportunities to stay fit. The campus is beautiful and very inspiring and motivational.

Overall Experience: Mount Saint Mary's University makes me feel welcomed! The small size classrooms are very helpful because you get less distracted and are able to concentrate more. Teachers are always available if you need help. Both campuses are beautiful and peaceful. Everyone is friendly and get along.

Guys & Girls: It's college: most guys just want an easy girl. Very religious guys stick with other very religious girls, popular guys stick with popular girls, nerdy guys stick with nerdy girls. It's very hard to be an "inbetweener" girl who isn't super attractive or up for anything and have a guy notice you. This isn't to say all the guys are scumbags, it's just most of the ones who aren't are already taken or are still 19-21 year old guys who have pretty vapid expectations for a girl even if they're nice guys.

Athletics: People get into D1 sports when they're doing well but it's not difficult to avoid going. Some of the club sports (specifically rugby) are just as if not mroe impessive than some of the D1 teams.

Party Scene: I'm not a huge partier and athough my friends go I avoid off-campus parties they're just not my scene. People often complain about a lack of parties or parties getting busted but if you just quietly have something right in your room with good friends rather than a huge crowd it's fun and you're most likely going to get away with it. It's nice though, there are very few real parties during the week so that distraction isn't there; the week is for (procrastinating) school work and the weekend is for fun.

Off-Campus Dining: There is basically nowhere good to go to eat off campus. People go to Ott's but mostly to drink; the food is just mediocre. There's a McDonalds and a Pizza Hut but that's basically it. I know a lot of people like it but I hate Simply Asia. I only had it once and it was awful. I wish there were more options closer or even vendors on campus, even just a Starbucks. I'm honestly kind of surprised their isn't more; I understand the summer would be a liability but if someone put, say, a Chipotle right in Emmitsburg they would make a killing. If you want something you need to go to Gettysburg (15+ minutes), Frederick or Westminster (25+ minutes).

Administration: Strictness on campus is hit or miss. I understand we're on a small campus in a very quiet area and don't get me wrong I certainly appreciate public safety but the amount of ticketing that goes on is just ridiculous. It gives public safety a bad rep but it's one they've earned; I don't think there's anything wrong with enforcing parking policies but they are much too strict about it. I once called in a noise complaint (twice, really, as my roommate also called) and public safety never came. They're definitely hit or miss with strictness. The administration doesn't really get involved in things; they're there but when it comes down to it public safety are the ones to actually enforce the rules or not.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: People love to complain about the food but I think it's pretty darn good as far as caeteria food goes. That said, I hate the meal plan. I loathe the "use it or lose it" policy where when you miss a meal it's just wasted. Especially for freshman who are on the 21+, odds are you're going to miss meals and it really feels like the money is just going down the drain.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you're a student with a pulse you're going to get at least $15,000. This is great but it does take away somewhat from the achievement of getting a higher scholarship. Tuition is too high, too. There's a $2,000 increase for next year tat wasn't mentioned at all. There should be more scholarships students can apply for while enrolled besides the automatic scholarship.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are very out of date. Terrace is nice. Just wish rooms were a little bigger. Can't comment on the apartments or Bicen but I've heard Bicen is very nice.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard. Things are expensive

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We're in a small town. Not much to do unless you drive twenty to thirty minutes away

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not good, not bad. Nothing really bad to say about them.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Sometimes the same things constantly, but overall, it is edible and better than my friends colleges.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Every student get some sort of scholarship! Work hard and you'll get something!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some rooms are small, some rooms are big. It happens to be a gamble sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: most students live on campus. freshman are in dorms. upperclassman live in renovated air-conditioned dorm. majority of juniors and seniors live in on-campus apartments. freshman dorms are hot for first weeks of school and cleanliness varies.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Are athletic facility is great, very clean.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many kids live in the town of Emittsburg, mostly because it is a lot cheaper than living on campus.

Party Scene: I party, however I am lucky that one of my friends doesn't drink. Because in order to get to a party you need to drive. However there has been weekend where no one throws down making the party scene no existent at the Mount. Be prepared for some boring weekends if you plan to attend.

Off-Campus Dining: Pizza hut and sheetz are the only places to get food after a 8 PM and maybe Otts if your 21.

1 College Freshman

Administration: We are treated like children. The disregard the fact that we are all 18 and older therefore legally adults however guys and girls are not allowed to be on the same floor past 12 AM weekdays and 2 AM weekends. It is a stupid rule.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is very decent, however some days lacks a variety. But the people who work in the dining hall are very sweet, kind and helpful.
