The Mount will hold an Open House for prospective students on Sunday, January 29 from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm at 330 Powell Avenue, Newburgh, NY.

High school students, prospective transfer students and their families can learn about the college’s 47 undergraduate programs and strong internship connections, opening doors to careers in health professions, business, education, social services, communication/media, and more, and making 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 in the tri-state region, and elsewhere in the Northeast and around the country.

Students seeking that highly competitive program will visit the state of the art labs in the Kaplan Family Mathematics, Science and Technology Center with hospital-like wards and computerized patient simulators. Clinical experiences in real world settings also offer valuable career preparation for Mount students as they pursue their bachelor’s or master’s.

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 enjoyed by today’s 2,700 men and women: highlighting smart classrooms, clickers, and digital editing equipment.

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.

With the demand for campus living on the rise, Mount Saint Mary College recently renovated the Garden Apartments 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 kitchens, cable, study lounges, exercise rooms, and even solar panels.

The View, the college’s recently renovated dining hall overlooking the Hudson River, has flat-screen TVs and offers students varied meal options and additional dining in Jazzman’s and Henry’s Courtside Cafe.

Another highlight of the campus tour is 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 freshmen receive some form of financial aid, making the college a very affordable choice.

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.
