Be the Spark
Set the World on Fire
A Chance To Shine
What do we mean when we say that we're a service-based institution? At the Mount, we encourage students to "Be the Spark" — to use their talents, knowledge, and drive to create change. In the classroom, on campus, and out in the community, we challenge our students to be the best they can be and provide opportunities to use their gifts to help others.
That's why it's our goal to become the most community-service oriented college in the nation. You don't have to wait until graduation to start making a difference. Let us show you how to spark change today!
Learn. Lead. Make a Difference.
Gaining Knowledge & experience
You could just learn from a textbook in the classroom, or you could make a difference as you learn. Seems like a no-brainer to us.
We put your newfound knowledge and skills to work helping others, and it’s a powerful combination. That’s why you’ll find Nursing students working in hospitals during the pandemic, teacher candidates supporting after-school enrichment programs, and Business students providing tax prep help for local residents.
We develop students with the courage to step up and create change. In the classroom, on the field, and in the community, Mount students work towards solutions and get things done. You'll find them working with Special Olympics athletes, helping to beautify the community, and mentoring the next generation. From there, the possibilities are endless.
This is what it's all about. We share our time and talent to make a positive impact whenever we can. Combatting hunger, bringing joy to the holidays, and making health education fun — it all adds meaning and depth to the college experience.
