Why do international students come to the Mount?

The Campus Community

With 75% of students living on campus, and a faculty to student ratio of 12:1, this is a small community where everyone helps each other.

Support Services

Our Center for Student Diversity helps to support all students on campus, but specifically underrepresented student populations.


The University offers numerous programs within our Schools of Business, Education, and Science and College of Liberal Arts. In addition, there are many opportunities to study abroad.
