Mount Aloysius College isn't the largest school nor is it the most well known, however, once a student is officially in and is walking on campus, it's a world like no other. Every building, every stained glass window, every carving in every fireplace, every statue, tree, bench, or even plant has a story and a tie to the school. The culture and history of this school are mind-blowing and they can sometimes overwhelm people. The fact that it is religiously affiliated might make some people turn away, but I can proudly say that the school celebrates its religion without forcing it down their students' throats! I was scared that attending this college would make me feel ashamed of who I am but it's helped me learn to not only embrace myself but others, as well. It isn't without its faults, but this college definitely has a lot of benefits of attending. If I could go back in time and be a high school senior deciding on what college is best for me, I would probably be a little bit more open-minded. For me, the process was dreaded and avoided. I didn't want to look at a lot of schools at the time. Now, I wish I had at least traveled to see more schools or gone away. I would have still chosen the Mount, but it would have been nice to have exposed myself to other campuses first, just so I wouldn't feel so biased when I say that my campus is the prettiest or best kept. Overall, my two years at the Mount have been interesting. College is more than just a learning experience where education and degrees are concerned; college is all about finding yourself, finding where you belong, and becoming comfortable with the decisions you make. Throughout these past two years, I've made a lot of decisions and I've learnt a lot about not just myself but also those around me and the place I live. My college has been serving its purpose thus far and it has educated me in many, many fields of life. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Review Mount Aloysius College
Due to medical reasons, I deferred my first year of college. However, I am attending Mount Aloysius this year, and majoring as a Physician Assistant. Mount Aloysius is a very old school with a beautiful chapel on campus, and a lot of history. Almost every professor works that history into their lesson plans. The faculty and students are very accepting and accommodating. During my visits to the school, my counselors and professors really seemed to want me to attend Mount Aloysius. But, they wanted me there for my personal strengths and attributes, not just to gain more money. Mount Aloysius is just an all-around friendly, quaint, peaceful college.
The director of the physician assistant program at Mount Aloysius is very personable. You can meet with her at almost every hour- one on one, or with other students. Also, it is a 3:2 program, so students will attend Mount Aloysius for three years, then transfer to either Chatham University or Mercy University in New York, for the last two years. I love this about Mount Aloysius' program because it gives students a chance to see other universities and get other experiences from them. The professors will also help you apply for those last two years of the program, as well as finding job-shadowing experiences. Work study programs are available on and off campus, which is something that really helps students majoring as a PA.
