I went to Mount Olive College from 2004-2007.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I went to Mount Olive College from 2004-2007. During that time, I received both academic and athletic scholarships and was extremely involved in campus organizations (e.g. Fellowship of Christian Athletes, founded Mount Olive College's Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Chapter, and led fundraising for ACS). The college is quaint, quiet, and in a very small town. The students are friendly, mostly hailing from the region, but there are also international students. The academics were challenging, but I double-majored in business and HRM. There is plenty of opportunity to make something of yourself at the school. The professors there always gave me 1:1 advice, and I'm in regular contact with many of them. After graduating I was accepted in to American University's Kogod School of Business, where I obtained an MBA and specialized in Social Statistics. I'm proud of my accomplishment of this tiny gem of a college and thought my education was a good value.

I attended the MOC New Bern campus.Not so brightCriminal
I attended the MOC New Bern campus. The location was very convenient and the course set up (accelerated, night program) fit into my schedule almost perfectly. There are ALWAYS negatives to ANY academic institution; MOC's were minimal. Overall, I had instructors with "real world" knowledge in addition to the proper academic credentials which provided a wealth of knowledge and made lectures interesting. A couple instructors enjoyed hearing themselves speak, but they were a small minority. My advisor was VERY helpful and supportive in regards to the administration aspect of attending college. I was fortunate to have a great group of people in my cohort (who became my friends! I love them!). While there were a couple negative experiences, I ENJOYED my time a MOC New Bern and would not trade it for anything!I would recommend attending MOC at one of the extended campus locations. If you NEED to have online courses to get a degree, then do it. Otherwise, I HIGHLY recommend doing a seated program. Further, the main campus location offers more majors and is cheaper, but be aware that the town is pretty small.

I believe I received a good education fromQuite BrightAccounting
I believe I received a good education from Mt Olive. I was accepted early into a master's program. There are going to be teachers at every school that are nasty. I deffinitely had one at Mt Olive! But, when I needed oral surgery on registration day, they actually held my classes for me until I was well enough to come back. Most other schools would not make an exception for someone not showing up on registration day. I lived off-campus and never interacted with the other studends or did school things, so I can't comment. But, everything is what you make of it. When you come to visit the school, you know it is in a SMALL town. This shouldn't shock you! The classes are small, so you get more attention if you need it. I happen to be pretty smart, so I mostly kept quiet in class waiting for it to end! But, overall, I had one horrible teacher. That's not bad!
