About 60 alumni and friends of Mount Saint Mary College recently enjoyed a fun-filled day at the Saratoga Race Course.

The event has become a tradition for the college. This most recent outing marks the eighth time alumni have enjoyed the annual trip.

This year, the alumni were joined by the college’s new president, Dr. Jason N. Adsit. Dr. Adsit began his tenure at the Mount on June 1, 2018. He joins the Mount family from D’Youville College in Buffalo, N.Y., where he served as Dean of the School of Arts, Sciences, and Education, as well as Director of the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program. 
 
After their day at the races, the alumni gathered for a reception at Gardner Farm Inn in Troy, N.Y., a bed and breakfast owned and operated by Mount grad John Hughes ‘84.

The event was hosted by the Mount’s Office of Alumni Affairs.
