Mount Saint Mary's College, although a small campus, is packed with beautiful scenery, incredible faculty and important career opportunities. The small, inclusive atmosphere of the school makes making friends an easy task! It also benefits teacher/student relationships greatly as standing out as an individual rather than just a number in class is almost guaranteed. The campus here at Mount is well kept and clean, overlooking the Hudson river which always guarantees an incredible view! Life as an on-campus resident is never dull, as faculty does a great job of keeping a consistent schedule of fun events for students to participate in! From petting zoos, to bingo nights there is never room for boredom. Mount has become a second home to me and I would recommend this institution to anyone who is looking for not only an amazing education but a comfortable, fun, inclusive college experience all around!

When approaching my senior year in high school, I had to make a life changing decision in choosing a college. After visiting various colleges, I was most impressed with what Mount Saint Mary College was able to offer me. In four years, I will be graduating with a degree in Education Technology, which is second to none and have a wonderful job on campus. Throughout my time here, I plan to stay active and meet new people from all over the world. I believe that the career center will help me get a great internship, which will give me more experience into the field I'm striving for. If you want to come to a small liberal arts college where you can gain a quality education and have four years of fun, Mount Saint Mary is the place to be. So why not come here when the tuition is affordable and is located halfway between Albany and the city? It will make it a whole lot easier to commute!
The second I stepped onto the Mount's campus, I fell in LOVE. The scenery, academics, and atmosphere are what influenced me into choosing a school like this. The Mount is a small community, which allows students to form connections with each other, giving each student a special bond wth one another as well as their professors. The professors work with you and they're extremely approachable whenever you need help; they will never turn you away. Overall, the Mount has become a second home to me and it gives me the support I need in order to succeed.
