Overall wonderful school. I had the opportunity through this institution to earn my associate's degree while I was still in high school. the staff made regular attempts to contact me and see how I was doing with the additional workload. The classes were fun, enjoyable, and I learned so much that prepared me for my current college endeavors.
Personally I love the Mount. Yes there may be some things they can work on, but no college is perfect. So far i have loved all of my classes and professors. All of my professors have been extremely helpful and willing to teach even with the circumstances we are experiencing in todays world.
Overall, I think that Mount Aloysius College is a nice school! It is a very safe, and small campus. If you want small class sizes, and a lot of one to one attention this is a great school for you. If you are going to major in anything other than a medical field, criminology, ASL, or accounting... reconsider your choice. While the faculty and staff are very nice and helpful, but the other major's are not taken into as much consideration.
I feel Mount Aloysius has everything a student looks for. Yes, it may be a smaller school but it is very safe. There is always campus security on the school and at times Cresson cops on campus. The dorms are great and you share a bathroom with the people next to you when you are a freshmen. Any student would prefer sharing with two other people over a floor of students. Mount Aloysius has a great job placement rate as well. Overall, Mount Aloysius has so many qualities within it that makes it such a great school.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Mount Aloysius College is 58%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
First consider your personality, values, goals, and career interests. Start by investigating schools that seem to fit your personality: whether you like sports, large class sizes, or technologically advanced equipment. Visit the schools that interest you the most, talk to current students and alumni as well as advisors, professors, and admission staff. Ask questions! You can never go wrong by asking questions, and if you think of them later always give the school a call or email. Picking a school is much like picking out a new outfit. When you get the right one it just feels right! Please also consider this is an investment for your future, dont base your choices soley on the wild social atmosphere or that your friends from high school are attending there. Take it seriously, take a breath , relax, and go for your dreams.
My classmates are al very intelligent and determined to succeed.
The most popular student organizations on campus are the Men's Basketball team and baseball team. Everybody loves to go watch the basketball games in the winter.. The gym is always full during every home game and the school shows tremendous pride for the mounties.
The academics at Mount Aloysius are very good because the class sizes are very small and this allows your professor to know you by name and get to work with you one on one. Another great thing is that the professors always have there office doors open and encourage you to go see them if you are having trouble with anything.
My overall opinion of Mount Aloysius College is it is a great school with a very small tight knit atmosphere unlike any other school you could attend. Everybody knows your name at Mount Aloysius you are not going to get lost in the shuffle as a student.
Just like any other school, you have the typical stereotypes of jock, geeks, etc., but most of them jsut blend together. They are not all seperated like some places. No on ever really fits one specific stereotype.
Great For Most People, Just Not Me.
The best aspect of my school is the different classes one can take. I love the major I have chosen and love the diverse classes I take. I feel we can discuss anything in these classes, and that is something I feel all college students have a right to. College is very much different than high school, not as conservative and strict on the things students can learn in the classroom as well as out. I also enjoy the professors I have, and how focused they are on their careers and making a difference in the lives of students.

This school focuses on academic success. There is rarely any parties, if ever. The college is made up of traditional students, and about just as many non-traditional students. The campus is a great choice for those with children. There is even a daycare on campus.
I have met a lot of people since I became a college student here at Mount Aloysius College and I believe that there really isn't one specific kind of person here. There is a large variety of people here and I would encourage anyone to go here if they are looking for a school with a small campus and small class sizes.
There is one thing that I don't like about the school, and that is Mount Aloysius is located on top of a mountain. In the winter time, it is a whole other world on campus. No matter how much snow is falling at the time, they never cancel classes and I live 45 minutes away and can't make it up the mountain at times due to the weather.
The seats in the classrooms. Old fashioned desk. Would rather see tables and chairs.
Don't want to sit in lecture hall with 150 strangers listening to someone lecture on material that's not even on the test? Mount Aloysius had a 14:1 student to faculty ratio, and most classes have under 25 students enrolled per semester. Professors and students are usually on a first-name basis, and it's easy to catch up on notes and ask your professor for extra help outside of the classroom. If you show initiative and effort, you will succeed. Warning: professors take attendance and it does affect your grade! But, that shouldn't be a problem for students that take studies seriously. If you're paying for it, you might as well endure it!
Many of our resident students live less than an hour away. Many go home during weekends, but that doesn't stop the activities on campus! Many weekends, we have Friday night live performances from bands, comedians, hypnotists, and the latest movies, as well as sports and other activities.
It's important to get that college dorm experience your freshman year. The Mount offers a variety of dorms to residents, however space is very limited! I live in a single room in a dorm located in the main building. A couple of our other dorms have 2 person rooms with shared bathrooms, and one dorm is an apartment suite style living space with 2 bedrooms and 4 people sharing a bathroom, common living space and kitchenette. The Mount can house around 500 students, and the rest of the 2,000 students commute.
Mount Aloysius College is a private school tucked away in the mountain range, located in the tiny town of Cresson, PA. Many people who have never heard of Cresson know where are neighboring towns of Altoona and Ebensburg are located. Our school is always well-kept and flouishing. We have woods surrounding the campus, lots of trees and old brick buildings, it's very pretty! As far as everything else, we don't have a huge student population, but kids are always out and about. You'll always be able to find someone you know nearby. It's a wonderful school :)
We're normal people!
Here at the Mount we have two standard meal plans: 15 meals a week or 19 meals a week. 19 meals a week allows you to eat on weekends, which is great for resident students who don't get to go home on weekends, or even residents who think they might eat on one of the days of the weekend. The food is all you can eat! We have a great variety. Very good salad bar, sandwich bar, set up like subway where the staff will make it how you want it. We have about every kind of cereal you can think of if you don't like whats for lunch that day! I personally LOVE breakfast food for any meal. We have a large variety of desserts and ice cream choices also!
If you don't want to eat in the dining hall, there is also a place called the MAC Shack. Here you can get a quick on the go meal. They have amazing chicken salads btw ;). You can also buy little snack foods, and again, everything here is made as you order it. It allows you to grab a meal and head off to class if needed, take the meal back to your dorm, or even just go outside and eat at the picnic table on a nice day :).
For commuters, either meal plan is available, but we also have commuter meal plans, where you can purchase a 50 block plan or 35 block plan for the semester, which is good when you decide you want food on one day you're up on campus.
And then, for the people who don't want Mount food at all, Cresson is loaded with food places, whether it's Chinese, Italian, pizza places, or Sheetz!
We have a large number of sports to choose from year round. MAC has indoor women's volleyball, men and women's basketball, baseball, softball, cross country, and tennis. Basketball is the big thing right now. Our teams are doing awesome! Lots of people come to support. It really shows how much pride our school has :)
