I graduated from MSMC in 2006 with a BA and in 2008 with an MSEd. My primary reason for choosing the Mount was due to the positive reviews shared among adult graduates and career changers. I was told that the Mount has the resources "to help to get you through". As a mother of 3 children living 45 minutes away, I had to be very organized and hustle. I took advantage of the resources offered and the wide variety of evening, weekend, and interim classes and I did it! The graduate program was exactly what I needed and I had a lot of working, supportive classmates to keep my positivity running. I have fond memories and am forever thankful.

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!
Absolutely loved MSMC! I knew the moment I walked onto the campus that I was meant to go there. I met my best friends and I l truly became a part of the Mount community. I had so many wonderful experiences there and I believe this school helped me grow as a person. I wouldn’t change my decision of attending this school for anything. I feel lucky that I was given the opportunity to attend for 4 wonderful years!
