Mount celebrates creativity this spring

A message from Sr. Catherine Walsh, Division of Arts and Letters Chair

The Pact
Creativity is blossoming this spring at the Mount

Congratulations to Dr. James Phillips, the cast and crew of The Pact for a moving performance. They provided the campus with the experience of seeing a play developed from a popular novel, and allowed the community to interact with the playwright, Jeannette Angell. Students were provided a discussion of the issues of the play with the playwright and a mental health provider. 

"Open Mic" began the annual April Poetry Series co-ordinated by Dr. James F. Cotter. Students, faculty and staff did readings and the Keys to the Soul, the annual literary magazine, was released by its Executive/Editorial Board. Congratulations to Dana Conroy, Giuseppe Conte, Djamilia Iagia, Danielle Kearns and Dr. Peter Witkowsky on a very fine publication.

Our library celebrated National Library Week in grand style with presentations from the college community and presenters from the local community. Corn dogs in the library, bravo!

Our poetry series continued with a reading by Margaret Gibson on April 20th in the library at 4 pm.  Eamon Grennan joined us for a poetry reading on April 29 at 4 pm in the Villa Library. We thank Dr. Cotter for seeing that we celebrate poetry month each year.


Dr. Entrekin and the Mount Saint Mary College Choir brought the songs of Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore to the MSMC stage on Friday, April 23 at 7:30 pm. It was a great evening for all in attendance. 

On April 27 at 7 pm, students featured their videos in the Annual MSMC Film Festival. Thank you to all of them and Dean Goldberg for providing this opportunity.

Creative people are the heart of MSMC. We celebrate them and continue to support them.
