NEWBURGH, N.Y. -
High school students learn more about Mount Saint Mary College at the Sneak Peek Summer Barbecue on August 14.
Summer days are waning, but Mount Saint Mary College had some fun in the sun with high school seniors-to-be at an informative barbecue on Wednesday, August 14.
Dr. Jason N. Adsit, president of Mount Saint Mary College, enthusiastically welcomed the students and their families. He noted that students at the Mount develop important skills that are useful in every career, such as critical thinking, analytical writing, teamwork, public speaking, and more.
“We are not in the business of preparing students for their first job,” he said. “We prepare our graduates for an entire career.”
As the smell of fresh burgers and hot dogs drifted through the air, the students and their families toured the campus, led by Mount student ambassadors. They visited residence halls and classrooms, and were wowed by the college’s breathtaking views of the Hudson River.
By meeting with current Mount students, faculty, coaches, financial aid experts, and admissions staff, students and their families learned about the diverse array of majors, courses, and athletic opportunities offered by the college.
There’s still time for interested students to see what the Mount has to offer. The college will host an Open House on Saturday, October 19.
At the event, prospective students can:
- Tour the Mount’s state-of-the-art facilities
- Speak with faculty and coaches
- Learn more about academic programs
- Visit residence halls
- Talk to current students
