The main thing that I loved about Mount Ida College was the student to teacher ratio. It was smaller classes and every single one of my teachers was very dedicated to teaching and wanted to make sure we were not only understanding the topic, but ENJOYING it. I'm very grateful for the professors that went the extra mile and I will never forget them. They even continue to give me great advice and I gradated 6 years ago!
The only thing that I would have liked to see change was the dorms and living conditions. Some of them were very outdated but I know they were working on that.

Mount Ida definitely makes you fee like everyone can be a part of the school no matter your race, grade, or major. Most professors put in a lot of effort to make sure you understand the material and are happy to have 1 on 1 time with you to help you if you are falling behind on something. It is a great school!
The school has an extremely friendly staff and students that make you feel like family. The campus is surrounded by a lush forest and feels like it's own little village. There is tons of wildlife running around including baby bunnies and turkeys everywhere. There is lots of space to go for walks or study on the grass, it is a very calming place. As for education, the teachers are seen as not only someone you love to see every morning but someone you feel you can trust.
