They should require psychology and education majors to withhold internships in the psychology department. The career development office needs a bit of revamping. They should offer more to the students as far as job opportunities and internships. Networking among the students is great but there isn't much networking outside of the school. If a professor "likes" you then you are in good shape as far as using him or her as a network. Every department is different though!

It has so many clubs for students to interact and also achieve new experiences and learning methods. The clubs aren't only for interacting but also for learning, and making learning fun. The teachers there are great! They are truly dedicated to their students and help in any way or form to make sure we understand what we're being taught. Every worker there is always ready to help guide us. My favorite experience so far was being able to spend a whole week on campus for the Trio program. This program is one of the best programs they have. It truly helped me have a better understanding of college and made me feel so welcomed.
I love the Mount! I think it's a great school with a lot to offer! The school is small so you get to make a lot of friends easily and you don't feel lost. Also you're teachers get to know you very well and try to help you succeed as much as they can. We're also a quick train ride away from Manhattan, which I love!
