4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Basketball games are awesome and really fun in the student section! Student athletes are cliquey, but nice. Intramural and club sports are a whole lot of fun and anyone can sign up whether you want to take it seriously or just for fun.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The closest places are in Emmitsburg, a one stop light town (Ott's which is also the local bar). If you want chain restaurants then you have to go further South towards Frederick. There's Sheetz and Simply Asia in Thurmont, and then chain restaurants in Frederick and further downtown there are cuter restaurants with more variety. But keep in mind you can't get to any of these without driving and Frederick is 30 minutes away.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: If you respect the system it will treat you well.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I fell like everyone on campus has a scholarship plus some financial aid or grant help.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is always a party somewhere on Fridays and/or Saturdays. Not many options of where to go though especially if you're under 21 since RAs are strict with noise, visiting hours, and drinking. Still a lot of fun though and it can get crazy. If partying isn't your thing there is always something to do with AMP events every weekend.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Mount is catered by Aramark and the food gets really repetitive and isn't great. It's a Pepsi school, if that is of any concern to anyone. There are no off campus vendors like Starbucks. I wish there were more healthy options.

However, there are gems that come around once in a while. Crab cakes, stir fry, asiago chicken, and the soups are always decent.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms really need to be upgraded. Sheridan and Pangborn don't have air conditioning and are not wheelchair accessible. Lounges are subpar in those buildings. Terrace is a maze of connected buildings, but it really is nice to live in if you don't have one of the small double rooms. Apartments are awesome because of the party scene, close community of upperclassmen, and kitchen. Bicentennial has fantastic suites to live in but feels like a hotel and has a disconnected community of residents. The Cottages are the newest housing on campus and are a great option for students who want to have a kitchen and a single. Only downside to the cottages are that they are the furthest from the center of the Mount.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is one sorority for students who have a high GPA.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Finding off-campus housing is not impossible. However, you will have to hunt and the price can be high.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There is no skateboarding allowed on either campus, which made me upset. Other than that, there are no other instances where the students and security/faculty clash. They let you do how you please as long as it doesn't endanger other or affect anyone negatively.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's so important to try and aim for a high GPA because then the scholarship you receive from the Mount will be high as well. Every student receives a scholarship by attending the Mount, but having excellent grades gets you more money. Overall, it is rare that a financial aid package will cover all of the costs of attending this institution.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Since the Mount is near USC, there are a lot of opportunities to go to parties. These parties are also great ways to network and meet new people while partying and having a great time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is 'hit-or-miss.' It seems to be healthy and uses good ingredients. The dining halls are very nice and spacious, especially at the Doheny campus. The menus are posted but do not always match the food being served and some items are not listed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not dorm, however, I've heard both good and bad things about living on-campus at the Mount. Starting off with the good, my friends that have dormed said they loved it and felt it was worth the high price! They said they were able to make more friends and participate in more on-campus activities. The cons they mentioned were that the food is overall ok, the rooms are a little plain at Chalon, and housing is pricey.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Here on campus, security guards are visible at all the main entrances. So that makes me feel very safe.

Guys & Girls: I go to a mostly all girls school. So the male population right is really lacking.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: I think the library is the best, also best job on campus you can do your homework while at work

First week of school is the best we have opening convocation, all you can eat crab fest, and tiki dance

however, we should have more events like tiki dance

ring dance is an amazing mount tradition that everyone should try and partake in

Greek Life: We do not believe in greek life.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The only late night option we have is sheets

we do not have a 24 hr mcdonalds the one in emmitsburg closes at 10, and the one in thurmont closes at 12

most of our dining fast food options are in thurmont

the closest chipotle is in frederick

the only places that deliver on campus is simply asia which is outrageously expensive and pizza hut.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not much campus crime is heard around campus. public safety is reliable

the most crime we get cited for is underage drinking

i feel safe on campus

4 College Junior

Athletics: Many people will talk about the treatment the athletes get, the extra meals, the special test and quizzes they will receive from professors. most of the athletes especially basketball since we don't have football walk around like they own the place. student involvement could be better since it is a small school, however basketball games are very enjoyable to attend. school spirit could be higher

3 College Junior

Local Area: The top places visited by mount students include the Ott House, Wal Mart, and Sheetz

the town does not have a college town feel to it, there's not much to do around town unless you're willing to take a trip into gettysburg especially in the spring and in the fall when we move in to experience many events and trips. you can also take the hour and half drive into DC

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing process is the easiest part of living on campus. Of course, freshmen housing isn't the best but that's expected. the best dorm on campus would have to be bicen, the only think bicen is missing to give it a 5/5 rating would be if there was a kitchen.

the apartments are okay, reserved for juniors and seniors, a few issues among the apartments, but once renovated will be the best dorm room on campus
