I attended Mount Vernon as a post secondarySuper BrilliantHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I attended Mount Vernon as a post secondary student. I earned a 32 on the ACT and had a 4.0 in high school, so I consider myself fairly intelligent. I had high aspirations for my tenure at Mount Vernon and was grossly unimpressed. The best I can say about the school is that the faculty is usually very interested in helping their students (while not always capable) and the grounds are maintained well. Its not the most beautiful campus and hardly has the student resources other $25,000+ universities have.

The students were given a nickname by the students at surrounding colleges, namely, "nazholes". This is because they have the precepts of being nice and friendly, but will have nothing to do with a person who is not a republican protestant (and sometimes even a Nazarene). They are very close minded and usually only interested in superficial qualities of appearance.

Academically, the school is lacking substantially. I don't feel like I learned anything at the school, and if the state wouldn't have paid for my tuition, I would have felt like I wasted my money. If you want to learn something, go somewhere else.

Basically, if the school was cheaper (like in the financial realms of a community college), I could recommend it. I am now a Junior at the University of Akron and attended their branch in Wayne county. Even Wayne, Akron's "community college" (which is frequently made fun of) was millions of times better than Mount Vernon. For $27,000 dollars, you could attend schools much better, like Case Western Reserve, Ohio State, and even out of state schools.

If you are thinking of going to Mount Vernon for religious reasons, please reconsider. Go to Cederville or Indiana Wesleyan. I had a theology professor who would interject f&^% whenever he felt like the class was not paying attention to him to rein them back in. The infallibility of the scriptures is disputed among the professors. Some professors go so far as to say the Old Testament is irrelevant. In short - AVOID MOUNT VERNON
