Mount St. Mary's University Reviews
The food here is quite good as there are many options from salad and fish to burgers and pizzas.
Due to Covid, some activities are not in person session right now, however there are still zoom meetings for clubs so you can still engage with other people about club topics and ideas.
I am in my freshman year at the Mount and I have found much love within the nature. There are so many hiking trails and ponds, so you can explore and feed into your natural curiosity of being human. I recommend a visit and tour of the campus whenever a student can!
