Why mount vernon..

Four main reasons why I would go to this college is-

  2. It's not a super big college, as in population
  3. Job placement is great, and great major programs
  4. Good art and teaching program

  • The Saturday before all exams they meet up at the eternal flame at midnight and scream to let go of all the stress they have.


This school shocked me the most about how much they get you involved when you first come as a freshmen. They make sure that you don't miss home or anything. When I went for subs weekend, everyone there was so nice and it made me feel at home and i don't go there. I am definitely considering this college and would recommend it for anyone that wants to be semi close to home and want to feel at home.
