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!

The University of Mount Olive is a small Christian based school in a rural area. Applying online is simple and finding out your acceptance comes back quickly so you don't sit around waiting to find out. When going to orientation people are always willing to help you. It is easy to contact anyone when needed and they are willing to help by responding quickly. On campus there is a always a diversity of students. Athletics are always going on so there is always something available to go support fellow students. There are so many opportunities for people to succeed here.
It is a very flexible school. I was able to go to class on base, on campus and online. The military affiliated personnel on staff had great communication skills and acted swiftly when it came to issues. I appreciated the professionalism and respect for my time. The classes were tough. If you take a 5 or 10 week class, do not expect a freebie. There will be 16 weeks work of work done in that time. If you cannot learn fast, I suggest you stick to 10-16 week classes so you have more time to absorb the material. Lastly, the professors all seemed to be willing to help and work with you during and outside of office hours.
