Mount has been very academically inclined, especially with the professors. I also found my internship with the state government through a presentation that was given during my accounting class. Morale of the school isn't great, except around Mountie Madness. It would be nice to see a day the school could bring in dogs for the students, such as bringing the dogs into the library and let students play with them as a break during midterms or finals. To add to that, a food truck on campus would be an excellent idea, even if it's only for the weekends. Bingo is a success among the students at Mount. Another idea would be like an activities day where there is a cornhole tournament, four legged race, or kan jam.

The campus has its perks and some downfalls. For one the campus really can be beautiful especially when you are walking back from the library on the downward slop. The college also offers multiple options to help you succeed. They offer free tutoring, your advisors and some of the offices really try to help you succeed and help to point you in the right direction when you yourself are feeling lost. The college even offers free counseling. Even if you are just having an off day or had a big fight with some friends or family, they really help you get through your problems and help make you feel as though you are becoming a better person dealing with some things and being the bigger person. The few down sides of going to the Mount, are for one its pretty pricey. The weather although has its nice days, the snow is awful.
So far, I have had wonderful experiences during my time here at MAC. The professors are wonderful, and they are very willing to help you one-on-one and in class. The dorms, especially St. Joe's could be better; however, for Freshman Living, they serve their purpose. The food is iffy and only seems to have quality taste when there is a major event on campus. The Campus Ministry and MAC's strong adherence to the Catholic faith and the Mercy Values are my favorite part of living and studying here. Overall, the campus is beautiful and the academics are superb. I really do love it here.
