    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!
    The Mount, while it wasn't my first choice, felt like the best choice and two years later.. I couldn't be happier. It's a community on campus like I've never seen anywhere else. Many of the teachers are regionally renown, a good portion are nationally renown, and even a few are globally renown, especially in the science departments. It's big campus education on a small campus. Individualized attention balanced with enough students to not have all the pressure on any given student.
