Mount Marty College has something special to offer — a community of people who care about each other's intellectual, physical, social and spiritual growth. There are countless ways for you to become a part of it.
Our staff and faculty believe our four core values help shape each student that walks our campus. We all strive to provide opportunities for personal growth, which leads to better self-understanding, intellectual ability, and appreciation of the places you live in now and in the future.
Enjoy life on campus
The Mount's beautiful 80-acre campus, built high on the bluffs overlooking the wide Missouri River valley, is the perfect place to live while you go to college. Contemplate your studies or your future during the walks along the river pathways. Put your passions to good use volunteering or playing sports, and make lasting memories and friendships through all of the campus activities like movie nights or playing pool in the dorms. Join one of our many clubs, campus ministry groups, intramurals groups or fine arts programs and meet people who like doing what you like doing.
Yankton: One of the top three places to live in South Dakota
Yankton is directly east of campus and is within walking or biking distance. There's several reasons why it's #3 on the 2016 Best Places to Live in South Dakota list. Things to do around town are abundant. Eat at the unique restaurants and coffee houses and shop at local stores downtown and along Broadway. Take a crew to go bowling and play frisbee golf, or see a play at the historic Dakota Theatre and catch a movie at Carmike Cinemas.
Lewis and Clark Lake: Swim, hike, play
Take advantage of Yankton’s abundant outdoor recreational activities. Canoe or tube the Missouri River. Only a few miles away, swim, wakeboard and waterski, or canoe and paddleboard the waters of beautiful Lewis & Clark Lake or Lake Yankton (yes we have TWO lakes, along with the Missouri River). Hike and bike our extensive system of city and lake paths. Our national archery center is nationally known and welcomes beginners and amateurs.
The Mount and the community that surrounds it is a place for learning and personal growth. Come see it for yourself today.
