by

In our “Meet the Mount” series, we’ll be highlighting some of the Mount’s people – our students, faculty, staff, and alumni – who make this college the wonderful community it is

One word to describe the Mount: Opportunistic

Isabelle Frank ’20 has been part of the Mount community since a young age – as a child, she attended Bishop Dunn Memorial School, the on-campus K-8 school at the Mount.

They genuinely care about your academic life and will help in any way that they can to make it successful. If you don’t ask the question that you have in your head, you might not understand the lesson and fall behind, so definitely ask!  Continue Reading

KL: What is one of your favorite aspects of being a Business major at the Mount?
