Academic Enrichment programs enhance and add dimension to the
academic culture at the College. Enrichment programs present
students with opportunities to challenge themselves at home and
abroad, and through creative, interdisciplinary research, both
independent and faculty mentored.
Academic enrichment at the Mount takes on many shapes from day

You'll see it in our 16 honor societies that recognize and
celebrate academic achievement for undergraduate and graduate

Academic enrichment activities expand on students' learning,
providing dimension and depth to classwork and class time. They
enhance the college experience in both innovative and traditional
ways, and allow our students to apply their knowledge and skill
base to experience.
