Our Students

Creative and passionate leaders. A drive to success professionally and personally. A desire to make a different in their communities.

Mount Mary University students are women from a variety of cultural backgrounds who want to create a bright future for themselves, their family and community.

While pursuing their degrees, our undergraduate students volunteer in the community, bring their talents to campus activities and organizations, study hard and have fun. They enjoy interacting one-on-one with their professors and other mentors, as well as building their confidence and leadership abilities to impact
the world.
