I have enjoyed the time I have spent at UMO. I attend an a satellite location in Durham NC. The instructors are very helpful, and class hours work perfectly for working adults with families. The financial aid department offers students the ability to concentrate on their academics, rather than worry about paying for school.UMO has locations in Jacksonville, Durham with the main campus in. Mount Olive.
Review Your College
My largest class has 25 people. This is a benefit and a drawback. On the positive side, my professors know me. The negative is because the classes are so small, they take daily attendance. So no skipping class!
I like the University of Mount Olive because it is a small, personable, Christian college that cares about its students and makes every effort to insure the well being of all the students. I especially like the Christian atmosphere and small class size. I feel like my professors know me on a personal level and genuinely care about my success.
