If you thought maybe being just a number wasn't your thing UMO is your place. Never have I visited a school where more than one adult could remember my name and information about my personal life. The involvement faculty has in students life is absolutely amazing!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a fairly small school that almost everybody knows everyone. In a way, it's both a benefit and disadvantage for the school. I used to hate small classes because it put a lot of focus on us students individually, however, as I've grown accustomed to this school, the small class sizes arent that bad after all. All of my professors know me pretty well (and I'm fairly shy so I don't talk very much), and they are accessible outside of class on most days. The school is VERY disorganized which frustrates everyone to no end, but they do have generous scholarships that they offer, especially to international students. It's nothing fancy or great. The urban setting can get to you sometimes, and the teachers can sometimes be dull or weird, but the students are pretty decent. Academics can get quite hard as the workload starts to pile up. I haven't had a chance to breathe since classes began in January, but I survived. I may not be doing as well as I thought I would but I'm just glad that I'm even getting a B to a B+. Standards are pretty low around here that I have classmates who aren't bothered by their 39's in a 100% scale

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school's VERY generous with their financial aid. A lot of us are actually on some type of aid, which is a huge advantage. Other than that, there's really nothing else to rave about. The system is very outdated, most of the staff are extremely unwelcoming and obnoxious. The campus feels like a correction center rather than a university. It's in a rural area so there isn't much outside of campus. Also, the whole administration is BEYOND DISORGANIZED. You have to constantly stay up to date with every single thing because these employees could not be relied on. I wake up and go to sleep triple checking every single thing, from financial aid, to classes and requirements. The registrar messed up my schedule and if I hadn't found out about it, they would have never told me. Also, their registration process is laughable. Worst school I have ever been to. If I had the means necessary, I would never have enrolled here. A vast majority of the people I talked to on my first month here all told me they were transferring out after this semester. I completely understand why and don't question their decisions one bit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is a great place to go, especially if you want a small college with a family vibe to it. food is good and buffet style which is amazing, Cost could be lower, but its less expensive than most private colleges. they are religion based, but dont shove it in your face or demand it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Mount Olive can feel like an extension of high school, which can be boring at times, but it is better for educational purposes. Everyone on campus has respect for one another, and the professors tend to be really understanding and flexible. We feel safe, connected, and respected. Some students feel as though they miss out on college 'party scenes,' but it makes our school that much safer. We rarely have incidents of injuries or attacks, and that is because we have such a close-knit community that doesn't party like animals. We value and prioritize education and have several resources available to help with that, and those who feel that they're missing out on partying usually go to the nearby universities to party, which keeps us safe. UMO feels like a home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mount Olive College is now the University of Mount Olive and I love it here. I was struggling to find a college where I felt like I belonged and I found that here. The professors are extremely friendly and even if you do not have them for class, they try to get to know you and usually remember your name. The Resident Assistants are amazing. It is a small campus so almost everyone will know your name by the time you graduate. You can even email the Chaplin and have prayer requests sent to the student body!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been here for one semester and I visited the University last year around this time and fell in love with the campus. Everyone here is so nice and its a small campus so you will usually know everyone in your class. The school is a D2 school and there are plenty of sports and recreational sports as well. There is a gym and all equipment like an actual gym. It's a great private University and if you have the chance to go there you definitely should attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mount Olive is perfect for those that prefer a small school with mostly athletes. Class sizes start at around 35 people at most and as you move into more major specific classes the class size gets smaller. There is absolutely nothing to do in Mount Olive itself however it is only an hour to ECU and then Goldsboro is about 20 minutes away.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

What once was Mount Olive College is now called the University of Mount Olive. Professors are always an email away, classes are small, there are not only students from a crossed the country but from a cross the world. The people at the University want to see you succeed in and outside of the class room.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very good people and are very friendly to get along with. You do not have to hesitate to ask them questions if you need help. You can always have study sessions with them and they are usually willing to help. If you are sick and miss class then there are some good people that can help you out and let you know what we did. There are always those good people in class that know what you are doing and you can ask them and they do not mind at all, myself included.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The University of Mount Olive is known for "the pickle school" because the brand of pickles "Mount Olive" is about 3 minutes from the campus. Mount Olive is also known for the athletics since most of the school is made up of athletes. They have 10 womens sports teams and 10 mens sports teams, most of which are pretty good. I participate on the Softball team.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Well in high school, I knew how to time manage, stay organized, and get my assignments turned in on time. Time management came from all my honors and AP classes along with the sports that I played after school. I stayed organized by having color coded binder for each class I was in so that I did not get any one mixed up. I also turned my assignements in on time so that I would not have then counted as late. If I had any advice to give to my high school self, it would probably be to stay focused and make good deisions. Even though college has not changed me in any way, I just think that this is good advice. Knowing now what happens in college, making good choices is definitely an asset to learn. Also, at the end of the term, staying focused is what it is all about, because this is when you have all your papers due and it gets really crazy. You just have to learn how to time manage, stay organized, and turn your assignments in on time and you will be set to go!
