It may be cliché, but it's true: At Mount Union, you really are a name and not a number. The small size of campus makes it easy to meet people—professors, staff members, and other students—and to really find your niche. Students love the small class sizes, individual attention from professors, and the close-knit feel of campus. If you take advantage of opportunities like student organizations, study abroad, athletics, Greek life, and whatever else interests you, it won't be long before Mount ceases to be just a school and becomes a home. Like its students, the University is constantly striving to expand its own horizons, with new facilities, programs, and opportunities for growth that you won't find at other schools of its size. Mount Union graduates leave with great friends, amazing life experiences, and a strong education, and most go on to become successful and fiercely loyal alumni.
There are a handful of things Mount Union students would change about their college, but when it comes down to it, most of them would still choose Mount if they had to do it all over again. Sure, we'd all like more quesadillas in the dining hall, and it'd be great if there were more to do in Alliance, but those aren't the things that make or break the University. The atmosphere and feeling of community on campus is what brings students to Mount, keeps them there, and makes them Purple Raiders for life.
