One word to describe the Mount: Vibrant
Nicholas Tucker ’21 has only been at the Mount two years and has already made a huge impact on the campus community. Whether it’s his involvement with various organizations on campus or just his bright, upbeat personality, Nick has definitely made a positive name for himself so far.
His love for the school shows each and every day. “Every day at the Mount is filled with so many diverse surprises and exciting moments, which as a result, leads me to cherish the time that I am at the Mount even more.” The Mount has been able to open so many doors for Nick and being able to do everything he does while balancing being a student is a prime example of a true student leader.
Throughout his couple of years here at the Mount, Nick has had many great memories, but two of them stick out to him the most: being chosen for the Honors Program and being selected as a Resident Assistant. “When I was selected for both of these, a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction came upon me,” he said. Once Nick sets his mind to something, he always persists until he accomplishes it. “I set my eyes on the prize and do not stop until I achieve it.”
Going into his junior year next year, Nick plans on staying just as active on campus and will always be ready for new opportunities. He wants to be a role model for other students who are looking to get as much as they can out of their college experience. “Getting involved on campus opens so many doors for people, therefore, I strongly suggest that people get involved on campus while they still have the opportunity to do so.”
If you ever want to know more about life in college, Nick is your guy. He will never deny meeting a new person or helping out a fellow student.
