A great thing about Mount Union is that they provide education not only in the classroom, but also through real life experiences. Whether it’s in the exercise science department and you have to act as their personal trainers or if you’re in my American Family course and you have to volunteer for a certain amount of hours throughout the semester. Tomorrow, I’m working at the food pantry downtown to help some needy families gather the food they need.
There’s a lot of ways to get involved in the community. And, not just in the city, but in the entire Northeastern Ohio region, including Youngstown and Cleveland. The faculty members at Mount hook you up by sending out weekly emails – Ennouncements – with information about opportunities to volunteer, available scholarships, internships and even chances to study abroad.Being a little smaller (in student population) than other schools allows for a greater concentration on the individual, and it’s really special here how professors get to know you and will personally help you get involved in whatever it is you’re trying to get involved in!
