The Mount may not have been my original first choice but when I stepped onto campus, I already felt like I was home. The professors are all so sweet and encouraging and helpful, it made me really feel important really quick. While it does cost a decent amount, the education and the experiences you'll have while you're here are priceless. I could not be more pleased with my first college!

As a first-year freshman, the Mount has provided a home away from home atmosphere that has made me feel welcomed and accepted as I am. Though it is a Catholic University, the school accepts everyone no matter what. I love how small the campus is because it makes it easy to get to classes without having to feel like you have to rush everywhere. The athletics are amazing, and as a member of the Women's Volleyball team, I can say that every sport is fun to watch and we love that the community loves to come support us. Because it is a small campus, the class sizes are smaller, which allows the teachers to really get to know you. The teachers at the Mount really do care about each of their students, and they want to get to know each of them individually. Mount St. Joseph University is truly a campus full of love and support for every individual that steps foot on campus.
My class size in grade school was 90 and because of this I new everyone pretty well. My class size in high school was 340 and I didn't like it. I graduated without knowing most people. I was afraid that going to a big college would mean I would have classes in huge auditoriums and I didn't want this. I wanted to be more than just a number; I wanted to be able to build close relationships with my professors. As a result, I chose to look for small schools. I toured Mount St. Joseph University and immediately fell in love. I liked the close knit community feel. Everyone was so welcoming I still feel this way even now. This was the only school I applied to because there was no where else that I could see myself. I would recommend this school because despite being small, there are many opportunities given to you to succeed.
