4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a junior at my college I can say that I've had some amazing teachers and met some amazing people as well. The tuition of the school is a little discouraging though.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The incredible way that all the students come together as a family during sports and even classes makes my school more comfortable to attend. The atmosphere at Mount Union is perfect for someone wanting to open up and be exciting.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone, literally everyone, is so amiable and helpful. They believe in Mount and want to share their passion for the school with you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: When trying to get you to come as a senior in high school Mount makes this big deal about all the healthy and homemade food they make. It's good for about a week, but then it gets extremely repetitive every week and even every day. A lot of the meat isn't cooked all the way through and there are spices added to everything.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I've never been to a party, but I know how and where to go because of my friends.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Alliance is in the middle of no where. There is a ton of fast food places that repeat as you go down the street and only 3 chain restaurants.

2 College Freshman

Administration: The administration doesn't like confrontation. There is underage drinking that got out of hand multiple times and they were aware of it, but did nothing. During those times there were CE's drinking with freshman and they still have their jobs and weren't punished.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you do not have very high GPA you will not get a good Financial Aid Award

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms aren't great in quality. The "no drinking" isn't enforced very well. Some dorms are cleaner then others including the carpet and furniture.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few options that aren't fast food. The options themselves are pretty good and pretty reasonably priced. Most places you need a car to get there.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Campus security is always helpful and nice, but I don't think that all the rules on campus are enforced as well as they could be.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Availability is pretty good and expectations for keeping them are clear. I don't think enough information is given on all of the available scholarships. You have to really look hard to find everything they offer.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a good amount of options available, but things tend to be repetitive. The hours are also somewhat inconvenient, especially on weekends.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall it was pretty nice living in the dorm. I just wish they had done a better job of enforcing quiet and courtesy hours, especially during finals week. I also wish the screens actually did their job of keeping out bugs.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had the greatest experience at Mount. I've made fantastic friends, I love the athletic teams on campus, and I know for sure that every single professor and member of the administration wants to see their students succeed and will do whatever it takes to help that happen.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I got an engineering internship my junior year of school because of my professors. The alumni network is ridiculously good. The school raised $20 million in cash for new buildings in ONE YEAR purely from alumni donations. In addition, last year Mount was ranked #1 in the Great Lakes region for return on investment, which is pretty great.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: People are all really cool and friendly.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Health center is close to campus.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks do a lot for the community. There is no hazing on campus.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Mount was ranked as the best D3 athletic school in the state of Ohio and the 9th best in the nation. There's definitely good reasons behind that. Getting to watch our sports teams destroy almost every other school they play is fantastic.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are some pretty nice, low-rent options for students that are in good neighborhoods close to campus.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Jaliscos, Victorios pizza, and Doug's Classic 50's Diner are some great local favorites.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Fraternity houses, off campus athletic houses, and townhouses often throw some pretty great parties. While Mount isn't a party school, there's definitely some fun to be had around town on the weekends.

5 College Junior

Administration: The CEs (our version of RAs) do a good job of making sure that nobody breaks anything in the dorms, but will for the most part let you do your own thing and are definitely not looking to get people in trouble. They are very approachable and will help with almost any problem.

Campus security helps if there is an emergency, but otherwise 90% of their time is spent writing parking tickets.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

It may be cliché, but it's true: At Mount Union, you really are a name and not a number. The small size of campus makes it easy to meet people—professors, staff members, and other students—and to really find your niche. Students love the small class sizes, individual attention from professors, and the close-knit feel of campus. If you take advantage of opportunities like student organizations, study abroad, athletics, Greek life, and whatever else interests you, it won't be long before Mount ceases to be just a school and becomes a home. Like its students, the University is constantly striving to expand its own horizons, with new facilities, programs, and opportunities for growth that you won't find at other schools of its size. Mount Union graduates leave with great friends, amazing life experiences, and a strong education, and most go on to become successful and fiercely loyal alumni.

There are a handful of things Mount Union students would change about their college, but when it comes down to it, most of them would still choose Mount if they had to do it all over again. Sure, we'd all like more quesadillas in the dining hall, and it'd be great if there were more to do in Alliance, but those aren't the things that make or break the University. The atmosphere and feeling of community on campus is what brings students to Mount, keeps them there, and makes them Purple Raiders for life.
