Applying to UMO was a very short and easy process. They contact you within a short period of time to welcome you into the prospective Trojan family. I was invited to tour the campus as soon as I could, at my convenience. My Admissions Representative was extremely nice and informative. Every question or concern was answered. I was highly concerned over what UMO could offer me financially due to having a family that cannot easily support me. The Admissions Representative promised to try to get as much help for me as possible so I would be able to attend. Within a week of applying, I was accepted with a financial package! I toured the campus and it was absolutely beautiful! I would recommend this University to anyone interested in a private school with a beautiful campus and amazing staff!

I transferred from my local community college to the University of Mount Olive in August 2016. It was the best college decision I ever made! The people are extremely nice and helpful, the college has so many things to offer, and the way they accommodate my busy life and schedule is amazing. I am able to continue being a wife, Mama, full time dental office manager, and go back to school to get my bachelor's degree in accounting! All because of the support from UMO! I could never give enough thanks and appreciation!
Mount Olive is one of the nicest schools I have been associated with. It has that warm southern charm, a beautifully kept campus, and tons of activities. I would love to see the sports games more attended though!
