Mount St. Joseph University Reviews
The Mount has a strong feeling of community, however many of its departments, including Liberal Arts, are incredibly underfunded and have felt the hurt of budget cuts. The Mount has a lot of potential, however I feel as though it has many departments and clubs, outside of the D3 athletic department or the nursing department, that need to be fostered and provided the opportunity to grow. The inability to specify whether you want to have an English, History, Philosophy or Religious Studies major, has hindered the education of those who have had to settle for Liberal Arts. The education at the Mount has a foundation of a Liberal Arts core curriculum, thus leaving its majors feel as though they are left with general study.
Mount St Joseph University is an exceptional institution overall and is worthy of praise in many regards. First and foremost the university prides itself on the achievement of academic excellence for its entire student body. The curriculum is varied, interesting and is engineered to maximize the character and well roundedness of its students. This quality of academic achievement is made possible only by an attentive and caring faculty of professors, many of which are expert in their respective fields. Student life at the university is also exceptional. All incoming students are welcomed warmly. The helpfulness of the staff is remarkable considering the fact that each professor is ready and willing to sit one on one with students for discussion. One shortcoming of the university, however, is that, even with its veritable course selection, it offers but one foreign language, that being Spanish. Personally I would have enjoyed a more wide ranging selection of languages.
I like the atmosphere and how friendly everyone is, as well as how approachable and helpful the professors are. I would enjoy the university much better if there was a larger variety of food choices on campus!
