Review Mount Saint Mary's University (CA)
The Mount is a very accepting university! Although it is generally an all girls school, it also accepts males into the nursing program specifically. The community is very welcoming and there are many events dedicated to both residents and commuters. No one ever feels left out, and I feel like the school is more of a family due to the acceptance of the community.
I love Mount St. Mary's University is great it's like it own little community. It is a liberal arts college so students get the chance to have more in dept teaching and understanding of their majors. Even take part in conversations about social and political issues around the world and within school. Professors are really passionate about teaching and creating a safe learning environment, while also changeling student to think outside of the box. I like that it's mostly an all women's college because it allows young women to feel empowered and strong about themselves and become more confident. This school is small and doesn't have a great scene of partying and social groups, like greek life, but that is also great it allows because to really focus on human interaction and connection with each other.
Mount Saint Mary's is a university strictly focused on your career later on in life. This university has one of the best nursing programs in California; as soon as you graduate from this place hospitals line up waiting to offer you jobs. If you want to finish your schooling in 4 years, this is the school to attend. MSMU does not necessarily have a typical college party scene, but the level of academics makes up for it. Each and every professor on campus wants to help us as students get where we want in life; they always offer office hours and encourage students to ask questions and seek help. I personally really love MSMU and the relationships I made on campus.
