Alexis

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!

Scott

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.

Erica

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.

Makenzi

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.

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

    If i could go back in time and talk to myself as a senior i would tell myself to focus strictly on school and not work. I say this because , while i was going to school and working i focused the majority of my time at work and not school . I now realize that school is much more important than trying to maintain a job . Education should always come first. Another thing is that once you move out on your own, life is not as easy as it was when you lived at home. Last but not least is that school is a privilege that not everyone gets to enjoy . So I would tell myself to keep your nose to the grindstone and get a degree in something you love to do.

  5. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    There are only three colleges in my state offering my major, Agriculture Education. The other two are huge schools with huge populations! Here at MOC, students are like family! We all get along (most of the time) and all have a ton of fun together. I find that it's unique for an entire school to support one another; most student's at other universities don't even know that they are alive!
