President's Message

David A. Kennett, Interim President of Mount Saint Mary CollegeWelcome to Mount Saint Mary College! We are delighted to share our school with you and hope that you will visit us on our beautiful campus with breathtaking views of the Hudson Valley.

Are you seeking a close-knit community in surroundings of great natural beauty? Are you looking to make friendships that will last a lifetime? Do you want to establish relationships with outstanding professors and mentors that will prepare you for a successful life? If so, Mount Saint Mary College is just the place for you.

At the Mount, you will benefit from a wonderful education in the liberal arts that will also prepare you for a satisfying career. Our nursing, education, and business programs have long been known for the outstanding quality and professionalism of their graduates. The Mount also offers excellent programs in mathematics, technology, English, communications, philosophy, religious studies, natural sciences, social sciences, and more.

All of our students learn to think critically and act conscientiously. The Mount comes from a strong Catholic Dominican tradition that, for more than 700 years, has emphasized service, community building, and teaching. Today the Mount is a diverse community that continues that tradition while readying you for the rigors of the modern world.

Here you will meet students, faculty, administrators, coaches, and counselors from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our entire community is committed to learning and sharing, and our strong alumni base testifies to the value and durability of a Mount education.

I invite you to browse around our website and look at our facilities and our academic programs. We are proud of them and hope that you will come and visit us, and be impressed too. I hope that you will find the Mount as exciting and enriching as I do. From the trees bursting with color in the fall and spring to the glimmer of snowcapped mountains in winter, our campus is attractive and hospitable any time of the year.

I hope to meet you soon.

David Kennett
