The professors are amazing, for the most part. A majority of them are very dedicated, understanding, and flexible with their schedules. However, the school staff (departments such as Financial Aid Office, Business Office, and especially Student Affairs) is extremely unprofessional and inconsistent. Without getting too much into detail, the school cares more about getting as many students as possible and making as much money as possible (without making any changes to the living arrangements, imagine having 300 beds, and already having 200 students, and then recruiting 150 new students, but then not accommodating the new students), over the morale and needs of the students already attending. The tuition raises yearly and with no explanation and zero changes to the facilities, quality of education, or anything. Also, certain members of the campus security have a vendetta to get students in to trouble, simply to make their own life more interesting.

Mount Marty College is a very small college that is growing. Their athletics are starting to improve especially now that they've decided to make an indoor track facility. They also provide a very good financial package for people who are struggling to pay for college which is really nice. Everyone I met there was very supportive and truly wanted to help get the best for you. I think it's a very lovely college that a small town person would enjoy!
It is a great community of people who you can rely on and trust. Everyone knows everyone, and it creates a great atmosphere. Teachers care, which is not always common in other colleges.
