Maria Greco ’13 did something very few Mount students take on – she graduated with a Philosophy minor during her time at the Mount, something that she’s still grateful for today.
Back in 2013 during her senior year, we highlighted Maria in the MSMC Magazine, and she touched on how her Philosophy minor made her think about her other course subjects and her faith in a deeper way.

Classes with instructor Justin Chiarot helped her “push boundaries and ask questions about my faith,” she noted in 2013. “It intrigued me and made me want to learn more.”
Now a nurse, Maria still sees the echoes of her Philosophy training in her work and faith.
“I am very happy and pleased with the path that I took,” she said, looking back over the past five years since graduating. “Having a strong faith, I was challenged and strengthened by the philosophical outlook. Having a Philosophy minor has made me more open minded and well rounded in the way I think and act in my career and in day-to-day life.”
