While visiting nearby national shrines (Our Lady Mary and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton), we took the time to appreciate this lovely campus. Regardless of the time of year, beautiful scenery are present. Next drive down Rt 15 - we will have time to visit inside the chapel and seminary.

Easily seen from Route 15, this iconic campus and seminary regularly welcomes visitors. The beautiful campus is home to several chapels including the recently renovated Chapel of the Immaculate Conception. Daily mass is available in several locations. The students, faculty and staff are friendly and helpful. A newly added "proudly serving Starbucks" recently opened in the student center!

This past weekend, my mom and I visited Mount St. Mary's University. We both agreed the campus was gorgeous. The sports building was huge! (I was most interested in the pool and the fitness center.) We also looked at the dorms, library, and cafeteria. However, the thing that stood out the most was the cathedral where my mom and I... More

A spectacular collection of old buildings form the foundation of this campus. If you are interested in in old buildings and architecture it is worth a stop.

Maryland history is written all over Mt St Mary's, its neighboring community of Emmitsburg, the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton....visit them all, and you know you are walking on sacred ground.

Mount St. Mary's ("The Mount") is set on the western slopes of the mountains with a full view of the valley below. A series of buildings devoted to academics, residential life and administration dot the hillside while a new athletic complex with a gym, stadium and playing fields fills out the campus across the highway. An imposing statue of the... More

We happens upon this campus driving through the area. We decided to go for a visit and enjoyed exploring the grounds and buildings. What a lovely place to go to school! Just behind is the St. Mary's Grotto of the Lourdes, a must visit also.
