Eagle Watch – May 18, 2018

After the storm that touched down in Newburgh on Tuesday, many of you were asking us if the eagles and eaglets made it through. As of this morning, we were finally able to see that all four made it through! This photo was taken this afternoon, May 18. Photo by Lee Ferris.

1968-2018: A Letter to the Class of 2018

Dear Class of 2018,

As you are looking ahead to your future, the Class of 1968 is looking back as we anticipate being on campus again for out 50th reunion. Fifty years has flown by, filled with jobs, marriages (and some divorces), children, grandchildren, deaths, travel, retirement, volunteering, and all of the other factors that are a part of life. For some of us the path was straight; for others there were bumps in the road as well as twists and turns. But for each of us who are returning this September, Mount Saint Mary College is a part of the foundation of our adulthood.  Continue Reading

We didn’t keep in close contact over winter break and two of them transferred. That was very sad, but it was okay because I was determined to make more friends this semester.

Throughout the spring semester, I also made a bunch of friends in my Education classes. They are a great group of people, and we all bond a lot over our academics. It has also been easier to become friends with people this semester because I have multiple classes with some of the same people. Continue Reading

Congratulations class of 2018!!!

The day that you have been counting down to, dreading, and patiently waiting for is right around the corner. The long nights of studying, chatting, and raiding The View have ended, but that does not mean it is over. The uneasiness of the future might be creeping up, but don’t sound the Sakac fire alarms yet.

As a recent Mount alumna, I remember feeling like “Now what..?” the day after graduation. I soon found my way, working part-time jobs and enrolling full-time in graduate school. Continue Reading
