Welcome to Our Family!

As your student begins his or her college career you too become important members of our community. You have worked hard and made sacrifices in order to instill in your son or daughter values that you hold dear. During their four years at Mount Marty, they will have many opportunities to incorporate these values in the classroom, campus life, community services, worship and student activities. For all these things to happen we must work together and support each other. We want to do all that we can to assist you with your student's transition through college.

Your student is receiving a high quality education at Mount Marty in an environment that promotes values, principled ethics, leadership and community service. The Benedictine tradition of academic excellence is demonstrated through the career-oriented programs and strong liberal arts foundation at Mount Marty College. Educational essentials for professional success are enhanced by opportunities for personal growth and development through a variety of campus activities, internships and service learning projects available to students. Mount Marty's close-knit community quickly becomes students' home away from home. Their "family" grows to include their RAs, their advisor, people in their classes, and faculty and staff, some of whom will become lifelong mentors and friends.
