The Mount’s Unspoken Social Etiquette

by

By Mack the Knight

It’s the Mount’s unstated social code.

I’m not really sure how it first started or how it continues to spread, but it seems to be silently communicated to each new class, about the same time as freshman students’ ID lanyards magically begin to stop appearing around their necks and instead get stashed in a bag or pocket.

Maybe it stems from our commitment to service as a campus. Maybe it’s because we’re such a small school and we know everyone else. Or maybe it’s because everyone here is just so nice and generous. Continue Reading

Plan on visiting the Mount soon for an admissions event? Make a day or weekend of it in the beautiful Hudson Valley!

Newburgh Waterfront

Fantastic places to eat like Billy Joe’s Ribworks and Blu Pointe, a gorgeous walk along the water, and even the option for a cruise on the Hudson River, the Newburgh waterfront has it all.

Walkway Over the Hudson

The Walkway Over the Hudson is a former bridge turned walking pathway suspended above the glistening Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, NY, about a half hour from the Mount’s campus. The views alone are worth the trip, and the Walkway society will often hold events over the summer like Movies Under the Walkway, fireworks, and more. Continue Reading
