My First Year: Q & A with Day’sha Tyson ’22

by

Name: Day’sha Tyson

Entry Year and Status: 2018 (Freshman)

Major/Intended Major:
Nursing

How did you decide on your academic or career path?

I chose the nursing program because of my interest in how things work and because I have a desire to help others. Also, because it’s a great way to provide and take care of my mother.

How did you overcome obstacles during your first year?

I will admit I struggled in the beginning because the transition from high school is very different. But, as time tried, I learned different study methods to help me with my classes. Most of all, I reminded myself that my purpose is bigger than just me.

What advice would you give to first-year students who are struggling?

My advice would be that it’s okay to ask for help.  Half of the students don’t know what we are doing, especially in the first year. Also, focus on the more important things, not just the fun aspect of college but what you came here for. Continue Reading

Habitat for Humanity

At Mount Saint Mary College, there are many clubs that help to give back to the community. One such club is Habitat for Humanity.  The Mount Saint Mary College chapter of Habitat for Humanity has done a lot to give back to communities over the years and continues to grow with more student involvement each year. The president, Katie Hertlein, is a senior this year and has been running the club for 3 years now.

Katie spoke about how the club gives back to Newburgh. “We work with Habitat For Humanity of Greater Newburgh. This organization has allowed us to come on worksites which we attend on Saturdays, working alongside the organization. Many houses have been worked on by our Habitat group. In the spring is an annual Walk for Housing which takes you around the streets where Habitat houses have been completed, or are currently being worked on.” Continue Reading

Love Your Melon

The month of October is in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.  A club on campus that helps those with cancer is Love Your Melon. This organization was founded in 2012 as just a simple idea of putting a hat on every child battling cancer in America. It was actually founded in an entrepreneurship class at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota by two friends: Zachary and Brian. To this day the organization and many colleges, including the Mount, have given 149,738 beanies to children battling cancer. Love Your Melon does not only give beanies out to children, however; they also give 50% of their profits to non-profit organizations that benefit childhood cancers. Continue Reading
