Professors are okay, calm peaceful safe college. However, Montreat college does not celebrate ethnic diversity. Most of the people around are conservative white Christians who will not take anyone seriously unless you are like them. Not inclusive for people who are different. People tend to hide their true selves and ideas to fit into the Christian ideal at Montreat.The school is very cliquey, you are either an athlete, Bible major, conservative, Outdoor education camp geek ,or from Florida. No interesting clubs or student life as well as a very small campus and poor dorm conditions, not worth the pay.

I went to Montreat college on a baseball visit to see if it was for me. When i got there i was blown away by all the scenery and the beautiful mountains. When walking around campus everyone was very nice, the campus was stunning! They have a beautiful waterfall in the middle of campus. After being shown around by the coach i knew that this was the place for me.
This college has Intentional people and educators, excellent learning environment and athletic programs. This Christian college is very rigorous and of course, Christ-oriented but a great safe and friendly place. The diversity here is functional, I have met all different types of people. The education system here is excellent, as well as spiritual formation and professional growth. The athletic programs are great here as well as student life. The college as stringent rules for students, so there is not much partying here which results and a pleasant calming environment. However the college is very small, but a great place to be at for an education.
