The people you meet during your time at the Mount will likely have a lasting and immeasurable impact on your life – from best friends, to great mentors, to everyone else here to help you succeed. You can’t put a price on a community of people who are ready to encourage and support you and are completely invested in helping you pursue your passions.
Our faculty don’t just teach you in the classroom; they double as academic advisors who can teach you how to stay on track to reach your goals. Your professors will be your go-to resource when you need help figuring out which courses to take, setting goals, and then exceeding them.
RAs are helpful neighbors who are a few steps ahead in their Mount experience and live just a few steps down the hall from your residence hall room. They’re there to help you feel right at home in your new community and are usually only a knock away when you need them.
Counselors at the Career Center will work with you to design a personalized, four-year Career Action Plan that will take you from creating your first resume to finding internships to accepting a job offer. They can also help connect you with Mount alumni who help with internships, job shadowing, and more. And considering that about 93% of Mount students are employed or in grad school within a year of graduation, the Career Center must be doing something right.
The staff in Learning Services supports the academic development of all students – regardless of disability or academic challenge. They operate our internationally-certified peer tutoring program, teach study strategies and skills, and support all Mount students with disabilities.
You’re going to have a lot more on your mind than tonight’s homework assignment or where you see yourself in five years, and we get that. If you ever need to talk to someone, our Counseling Center staff is available Monday through Friday to lend an ear and help you put things in perspective.
When we say we are “one big Mount family” we mean it. You’ll be part of a network that numbers more than 23,000, and stretches from Maryland to California and almost everywhere in between. You’ll see them on campus too, sharing their experiences after the Mount as part of a class, or dressed in blue and white and cheering on the Mountaineers.
