“I got to know my instructors, not just in the lecture but in our clinical classes, too. I appreciated that they set up labs for us to practice in – it was a lot of fun.” It would have to be the instructors. I think Mount Royal has a lot of great instructors with industry experience combined with great education who are willing to support you through your years at Mount Royal to be successful.”

“My lasting memory of Mount Royal will be all of the wonderful friends I made. I met my best friend here and now we work together in the same company too.”

“My lasting memory will be my free Danish this morning! I finally get something for free. Apart from that I met the love of my life, so relationships generally will be my lasting memory.” “I like the smaller class sizes ... it’s more a family place atmosphere. You feel it’s easy to go to an instructor’s office and talk to them. And the other students were a lot of fun!” “Meeting all the people will be my best memory. I’m from a small town so my graduating class was 30 people. I’ve made plenty of friends here and enjoyed the smaller class sizes and one-on-one time with instructors.”

“I was able to attend an international criminal justice conference where I heard a lot of speakers from different professions talking on various issues. The highlight was seeing Dr. Bruce Perry talk about neglect and how it affects young people’s developing brains.” “To graduate from my program, I had to do a one hour jazz concert and perform with a band. It was a pretty special evening and we had a great turn out – lot of good friends there and family. That was a highlight.” "One day in our 17th Century Culture class, Cliff Werier was trying to give us a positive reading of a poem by Robert Herrick. The entire class, which was mainly female, was just not having any of it. We told Cliff, “Herrick is a pervert – he’s disgusting!” It was a really fun class!”

“I would say the interaction with professors. I like the small college feel that I experienced in the past four years.” “I played on the women’s volleyball team so getting second at the Nationals this year was a highlight for me and a lasting memory.”
