My overall experience at school has been incredible so far! The academics at my university are challenging and demanding, but the professors care about your learning in the classroom. Due to the small class sizes, professors are always available before or after class as well as during office hours and via email if you have any questions or concerns. They get to know each student individually, which in turn builds a strong student/professor relationship. Aside from the professors, everyone you meet on campus is extremely friendly and welcoming. My university also contains many clubs, activities, and organizations that students can join in order to give each student an opportunity to meet new people and hold leadership positions.

I attend the University of Mount Union, which is in the town I was born and raised in. Many people disagreed with my decision to stay close to home for college, but I think it was one of the best decisions I've made. I love my school. The campus is beautiful and the classes are small, which I prefer. Even though I live in my college's hometown, I still experienced life in a dorm room my freshman year and it was an interesting experience and I'm glad I got the opportunity to know what it's like living on campus and getting out of the house. But I love being down the street from my home and being able to see my family all the time. The University of Mount Union has many unique activities and classes to offer which is why I love where I chose to spend four years of my life!

Greek life is a big deal on campus. They are always putting events on to help raise money for great causes. I think some people who don't know the philanthropy aspect of greeks think it is all about the parties, but I am aware of the differences. The sorority houses are quiets small most only have 3-5 girls living in them, but the fraternity houses are quiet the opposite. Most of our fraternity houses keep anywhere from 15-30 guys in them, they look like mansions!
