Mount St. Joseph University Reviews

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.
Review Mount St. Joseph University
I personally love Mount St. Joseph University and I love most of the professors within the school. I am personally a special education major and I am in my senior year. Most of the education professors are wonderful and care about you and your success. There are a select few who are too harsh or do not feel qualified to be a professor. There are many opportunities to get involved on campus. There are endless activities if you live on campus and there is even a Starbucks. If you enjoy being at a small school, you would love the Mount. It is easy to meet new people and to make friends. I love it here, and I am sure most people would too.
Opportunity to play college football, small class size, professors are involved and caring. Student life is good, food is good. Cincinnati is a great town, sports management degree will give me a lot of opportunities to be successful.
Buildings are a little older and could use some refurbishing, especially the dorm rooms. Overall a great college experience.
