If you're looking to attend a small school where the professor to student ratio is on average 1:6, this is the perfect school for you. I love CMSV. I have one more year until I graduate and it feels like time has flown. The professors are all amazing; most of them very mature in age and filled with so much wisdom. Even the food is good and is made by order. I've lived on campus since I was a freshman and have been a Resident Assistant for 2 plus years. It has created such an inclusive environment for me. You really find not only classmates and friends, but people you can call family when living amongst each other. This is not much of a party school which can get boring at times but it definitely gives you no other choice but to really focus on your studies.

The College of Mount Saint Vincent is a small liberal arts school near New York City. There are only a couple thousand students enrolled. This allows for relationships between teachers and students. Not only is the school focused on studies, but it also focuses on the life of students outside the classroom. There are countless clubs to join. Almost everyday it seems like there is an activity for students to take part in, whether it's a ride to the city, or bingo.
The accelerated nursing program really sets you up with the tools to pass the NCLEX as soon as the first semester. Every class encorporates ATI testing into their curriculum. The reason I gave it only 3 stars is due to the fact that the financial aid office is terrible. They are unresponsive I called every day once foe a week and left multiple voicemails and never got a response. They also misplaced stuff I sent them and made me resend it, and I always had to follow up multiple times before something got done. Very frustrating when you’re getting ready to start a program and meet all your other deadlines.
