    Tell us about Mount Aloysius College
    Personally, I have enjoyed my experience through mostly all aspects. However, one issue I have faced is the campus is based a 15-20 drive away from the nearest city and as I don’t have a car this has sometimes caused myself issues. Accommodation has been average. Living in the first year’s dorm it is rather basic and old. However, something I do like about this is that all the freshmen are together, making it easier to get better connections

    Facilities are great for such a small sized college. Campus life is a bit quiet compared to other universities, yet i enjoy it and think it suits me.

    Andrew Clouse says

    The closeness of our campus community makes it a great place to learn and take the next steps in life and careers. We are very career-oriented and I think the individual attention students receive shows in their success later in life.

    The individuality and attention we give our students especially on the international side is one of the best things about Mount Aloysius College. We have a strong and robust group of international students that you don't find everywhere.

    Mount Aloysius offers a range of facilities for international students including career services, tutoring, and counseling - all free for the students to take advantage of. We also help with transportation and getting everything they need to be successful.

    There's a wide variety of career prospects for our graduates due to all of the majors that we offer. Students are well-rounded individuals when they leave this special place.
