August 24, 2011

Newburgh, NY -

Mount Saint Mary College is already gearing up for the fall 2012 class. An Open House is planned for Sunday, September 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., 330 Powell Avenue, Newburgh.

Mount Saint Mary College currently serves around 2,700 degree-seeking students: traditional undergraduates, continuing and transfer students, and master’s degree candidates.

Prospective freshmen and their families can learn about the Mount’s 47 undergraduate programs which prepare students for careers in health professions, business, education, social services, communication/media, and more.

During Open House, counselors will provide information about opportunities such as the college’s honors program, and robust internships which open doors to careers in the Hudson Valley, New York City, Capital Region and beyond.

Student ambassadors will lead tours of classrooms, updated residence halls (including one with solar panels), new athletics turf field, and The View dining hall (named for the campus’s spectacular outlook over the Hudson River) in Aquinas. The college also has an indoor pool with a view of the river and six tennis courts with new lighting.

Some 457 freshmen move onto campus August 27 from the Northeast, California, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. Most incoming freshmen receive some form of financial aid, making the Mount a very affordable choice.
