While taking this course, there was an eight-page essay that needed to be written, and Mount Saint Mary College graciously allowed us to use their library database. While researching for the paper, we were also given a tour of the campus, and I knew this was where I belonged. Everyone was very nice, from the teachers and staff to the students we saw walking from class to class. Plus, the campus is beautiful and right by the Hudson River. Continue Reading
