Both campuses not only have a welcoming atmosphere that contains friendly and caring staff and students but provides many opportunities to their students. Including advancement toward their education, extracurricular activities to be immersed in, and opportunities to be the best that you can be. Mount Saint Mary's strives to help their students succeed and genuinely work toward improving themselves to cater to students' and teachers' needs. Very community oriented and a great place to pursue an education. With so many opportunities comes a second home with an environment that's peaceful and caring to your needs which makes Mount Saint Mary's one of the few schools that prioritizes for the students, genuinely caring for them.
Review Mount Saint Mary's University (CA)
Overall, my experience at MSMU has been amazing! The instructors are very approachable and helpful. The campus is extremely safe and a very beautiful, serene environment.
I just ended my first year at Mount Saint Mary's, and I can say with all honesty, I have never prospered this much academically. It is an incredibly welcoming campus with professors that look to your needs and are there when you need them. There are many resources available to cater to your academic and personal necessities on campus, from the Learning Resource Center to Psychological Counseling Services. Overall, MSMU, while quiet and small, is the type of university to focus on its students– the type of university to take young women and prepare them to go forth and conquer.
