  • I loved my time here at the Mount. It was the perfect blend of college life for me: remote enough to feel isolated from the outside yet close enough to get anywhere in a short distance; competitive athletics that brought out student support; and academics that prepared me for my career after graduation. The scenery of the campus and surrounding area was beautiful. I spent plenty of time (but also not nearly enough) biking, hiking and otherwise enjoying the outdoors. There were plenty of activities to keep you busy. I personally enjoyed the small campus, although for some there may not be enough "action" to keep you excited. It worked well for me. The campus is geographically located in a superb place, within a stone's throw of DC, Baltimore, even Philly and south Jersey weren't that far away. I'll always remember my time at the Mount and will look forward to returning to campus for years to come.
  • I can't say enough the Mount. It was an amazing place to spend four years!
