Then and Now: Joe Henain ’14

When asked about his future as a senior, Joseph (Joe) Henain ’14 remarked that he felt ready for the next step – medical school – because of the Mount’s preparation. “I feel incredibly bless to be part of this incredible institution,” noted the Biology major on the Pre-Med track in 2013, “and the Mount has definitely prepared me for my next step in life and to fulfill all my dreams to become a doctor.”

Now, four years later, Joe has accomplished that dream.

In May, Joe graduated from Albany Medical College with a degree in medicine, and is already preparing for his next challenge, pursuing training in the field of Vascular and Interventional Radioloy at Emory University in Atlanta, GA.

“(The Mount) gave me a great pre-med program,” Joe said. “Every single faculty that I met here has gone above and beyond to help me succeed, not just here at the college level, but teach me lessons about how to succeed in the real world. They’ve given me every opportunity that a big university could, and some more.” Continue Reading

Dear Class of 2018,

As you are looking ahead to your future, the Class of 1968 is looking back as we anticipate being on campus again for out 50th reunion. Fifty years has flown by, filled with jobs, marriages (and some divorces), children, grandchildren, deaths, travel, retirement, volunteering, and all of the other factors that are a part of life. For some of us the path was straight; for others there were bumps in the road as well as twists and turns. But for each of us who are returning this September, Mount Saint Mary College is a part of the foundation of our adulthood.  Continue Reading
