Marissa - 12/16/2020

I absolutely love attending the University of Mount Union. Both students and faculty are extremely welcoming and friendly, and it really has that small school opportunity to essentially be a part of a community. The academic strength largely depends upon the department, but if you're in the right program, you should have no worries.

Madison - 07/06/2020

I have always enjoyed attending this school since day one. The campus is one of the most gorgeous places to view. A lot of money goes into making the campus a wonderful place to be, especially the outside. The staff are for the most part excellent and always explain things thoroughly.

Connor

The University of Mount Union is a higher education experience that I would consider to be at the forefront of western culture and academics. There is opportunities and diversity for all attendants of any and every background. I believe the University of Mount Union will deliver a unique, comprehensive and tentative plan for any college student who wants to be prepared to be an active citizen in the real world.

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

    You're about to go down a road you'll never see coming, good times and bad. What would you say if I told you, that you like math, and just don't know it yet? In a couple of years, you realize all of your friends are getting ready to graduate, while you are still trying to get through high school level classes at the community college. I know you spent all that time in high school believing that when you graduated, it was over. You're wrong. You need to pull together, work harder than ever before, and please take more math. Math makes you feel dumb, but you get it. You'll find it comes naturally after a while. Don't work at that pizza shop for too long. Get away from the people you call “friends” they are poisonous. You fall into bad times with those folk. Don't get me wrong, you have plenty of good times that won't change. But the life you are heading to demands more out of you than you have ever put into education before. Please, sign up for classes early, get the math done, and enjoy sooner.

  5. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The only flaw that I've found myself to see over and over again, is the student body not taking full advantage of the opportunities that Mount Union provides. I don't understand why some of the students here don't fully exploit all of the chances here on campus. There's always that handful of students who will say that campus life is boring but those are probably the same students who are blind to the life on campus.

  8. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    Mount Union College is a very diverse and original school. It is difficult to express who should not come to this school because the students present are all very unique and different. However, if I absolutely had to choose, I would say a non-spirited and backward person. MUC is like a family. Everyone gets along and everyone speaks with everyone. So, if someone is not willing to put themselves out there and become a part of this family, maybe it is not the school for them.

  12. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    Mount Union has a beautiful campus and I never mind walking to class because the walk is always pretty. I also know the majority of the students who attend there because it's such a small school. The small size is very impressive, as it gives me a lot more one on one time with my professors, most of whom know me by my name. Academics definitely come first, but everyone is encouraged to get involved in extracirriculars.
