Mount Saint Mary's University - California Reviews

All Categories
Mount Saint Mary's University is an amazing place to receive your education, but you MUST take full advantage of ALL the services it provides to students. It is a small school with 20-30 students per class (usually less for more specific classes). These class sizes make it possible for you to be acquainted with your professors. Students may be hard to get along with in certain groups, but once you find your niche, you're A-Okay! IT is EXTREMELY expensive, so please find ANY free money you can. You WILL pay for everything not included in your academic package (meal plans - even with housing, parking [you'll save $50 with the semester package], books [some business classes REQUIRE online supplementals costing about $100], etc). With all the money you are spending, there are free services (peer-tutoring for specific subjects, professional tutoring, resume help, career development planning, psychological services, borrowed calculators, etc).

Mount Sait Mary's provides the perfect environment for students who are career focused. Professors and Administrators are good at helping students figure out what they want to do in life and learn how to apply their skills to realistic careers. The class sizes are small compared to other universities, and the students are constantly setting up small community building events on campus. MSMU offers a variety of services for their students at times that fit with their busy schedule. One of the most valuable experiences I have had at MSMU was the Commuter Mentor Program. This program allows for you and another student to be paired up as an intro to college help. The mentor is typically a second or higher year student and is always available for questions and concerns an incoming freshman may have. Overall rating 4/5!
Well, where can I start! Mount Saint Mary's University feels like home away from home. I am live at home still but it feels like a safe place where I always feel welcomed! You can trust any of the staff or campus security if you're having any issues around. There are many resources to help with your classes and work. There are jobs available on campus. If you have any financial issues the offices are glad to help you. This school is for anyone and everyone trying to create something greater in life. I am really proud to be an MSMU student!
