Mount Saint Mary College

Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, NY will hold its last Open House of the season on Sunday, November 13 at 330 Powell Avenue.

The road to a career for prospective freshmen and transfer students begins with learning about the college’s 47 undergraduate programs in health professions, business, education, social services, communication/media, and more.

Families are welcome to attend Open House, 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. Sign-in begins at 9:30 am in the Kaplan Family Mathematics, Science, and Technology (MST) Center atrium.

The Mount’s 400 plus internship and co-op experiences offered each year open doors to varied job opportunities and make a Mount education a great value.

The Mount offers the only four year nursing degree program in New York’s mid Hudson Valley and boasts a NCLEX-RN passage rate in the high 90s to 100. Recent nursing graduates are working in hospitals around the country.

Students seeking that highly competitive program will visit the state of the art labs with computerized patient simulators. Clinical experiences in community hospitals and healthcare agencies offer valuable career experience for Mount students as they pursue their bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing.

For students who want more, the Mount’s honors program provides increased lab time and academic field experiences exploring the Hudson River’s historic sites, from Washington’s Headquarters in Newburgh to nearby New York City.

Mount Saint Mary College is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, plus specialized accrediting commissions such as the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

Mount Saint Mary College has made strategic investments with cutting edge technology and was the first college in New York State with a completely wireless campus. Student ambassadors will show off tech advances such as smart classrooms, clickers, ecology simulation software, and digital editing equipment.

With the demand for campus living on the rise, Mount Saint Mary College recently renovated the Garden Apartments near the college entrance and has a master plan to add residential space in the newly acquired Dominican Center. Other residence halls, many with river views and suite-style living, have semi-private bathrooms, kitchens, cable, exercise rooms, movie lounges, study areas, and even solar panels.

The View, the college’s expanded dining hall in Aquinas Hall, has soft-seat booths and round banquettes, with ambient lighting, floor-to ceiling windows overlooking the Hudson River, flat-screen TVs and a new sound system. Along with the recent renovation, the Mount has kicked up the menu, offering students varied meal options and additional dining in Jazzman’s and Henry’s Courtside Café.

Another highlight of the campus tour includes Kaplan Recreation Center with six tennis courts, an all-weather turf field and an indoor pool with a view of the Hudson River. The Mount offers 17 intercollegiate varsity teams.

More than 95% of Mount Saint Mary College freshmen receive some form of financial aid, making the Mount a very affordable choice for its 2,700 men and women.

To facilitate the transfer of credits, Mount Saint Mary College has special agreements with community colleges in Orange, Dutchess, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester counties, as well as graduate schools.
