Meet the Mount: Professor Scott Russell

by

In our “Meet the Mount” series, we’ll be highlighting some of the Mount’s people – our students, faculty, staff, and alumni – who make this college the wonderful community it is.

Scott Russell- Assistant Professor of Sports Management


Title: Assistant Professor of Sports Management

Years at the Mount: Three

Department: School of Business

Campus involvement: Faculty Athletics representative; representative for the School of Business on the Faculty Senate; and member of the Admissions Committee, the Study Abroad Advisory Committee, the Athletics Hall-of-Fame Committee, the Writing Intensive Committee, and the FYE Advisory Committee.

Favorite spot on campus: His office – He says his door is always open and it makes his day to have a student stop in to chat for a while, whether planning for next semester’s classes, discussing an internship, or just talking about the prospects for an upcoming sports season.

One word to describe the Mount: Optimism

Before coming to the Mount, Scott Russell coached at the collegiate level for 20 years. Coming to the Mount was a similar feeling to being a coach. “My favorite thing about working for the college is having the ability to interact with my students the same way I did with my athletes,” Russell said about working at the Mount. Russell got to know all of his athletes well, and they became close to a family. He believes the same principles apply to being a teacher: “The size of our campus and the number of different classes I teach give me a better chance to have a positive impact on, and provide academic advice to, our students.” Continue Reading

Noah Ginty ’20

One word to describe the Mount: Incredible

 

Noah Ginty ’20 is certain that he has made the right choice by coming to the Mount. “My favorite thing about being a student here is being involved in the community on campus. The relationships and friends that I have gained throughout my time here are invaluable to me,” he explained.

Noah wasn’t always so active and involved around campus though. “Coming to school my freshman year, I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life, or what I was even interested in. I became really good friends with my RA who encouraged me to apply to become an RA myself. I can say this was hands down the best decision I could have made to become more involved in college.”

Besides being an RA, Noah is also a captain on the Mount’s track and field team where he has also had much success. He talked about how one of his greatest memories here at the Mount came while on the track team. “By far the most memorable thing I’ve done in my time at the Mount was when I set the new school record for Javelin my sophomore year. That was definitely one of the most rewarding achievements of my life and it was extremely nice to see all of the hard work that I put in pay off into something so positive,” he explained.

If he had the opportunity to go back in time, he’d still choose the Mount every time. “Choosing to come to the Mount has by far been the greatest choice I’ve made in my life. The opportunities that have been created for me would not have been possible at any other school. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”

You can catch Noah around campus usually either at class, in the gym, or studying and hanging out with friends in the library.

When Alexander Perlak ’20 first arrived at the Mount, he thought he would be pursuing a certification in Education.

After his first semester, however, he realized that being a teacher just wasn’t for him. “The Mount puts their students in the ‘real world’ during their first year to gain experience to make sure this is the right program for them,” he explains, an opportunity he is so grateful for.

He was already a Mathematics major, but after dropping the Education certification, he wasn’t sure how to proceed.

Thankfully, the faculty in the Division of Mathematics and Information Technology knew just how to guide him. Continue Reading

MFY Faculty Flashback: Anthony Scardillo

Every other week, the My First Year blog will be sharing stories of faculty so that our freshman students can get to know their professors a bit better and hear some of their advice for new students.

Anthony Scardillo, DM, MBA, Assistant Professor of Marketing

Division or School: School of Business

Number of Years at the Mount: 1

Hobbies/Recreation: Family; Morning walks; Cooking and Tinkering with my 1966 VW Beetle

What students don’t know about me:
I used to sing in a Barbershop Harmony Quartet

Marketing is about getting your product noticed by the consumer with the intent to sell that product. And the hardest part is getting your product noticed in today’s extremely cluttered and competitive market.

Using that context, if a student wants to “break the ice” with a professor, they need to view themselves as a “product” and determine what attributes you have that would help you get noticed – and ultimately “selected” by the consumer (The Professor). Continue Reading
