Mount students enjoying Newburgh’s waterfront.
The Mount is blessed to be located in the historic and beautiful Hudson Valley with plenty to do and see. When they’re not busy studying or participating in on-campus events, our students can always find something to pique their interest in the local area. We asked some Mount students where their favorite places to go off-campus were, and here are their answers:
Binnacle Books – Derek O’Hanlon ’19
A quaint bookstore located in Beacon, NY featuring new and used books. Just 1.4 miles from campus!
Target – Kaitlyn Barber ’21 and Carmel Lozada ’20
Who doesn’t enjoy a good Target run? Thankfully, there’s a Target (along with many other essental stores) located along Route 17-K in Newburgh 4 miles from campus). Plus, the MSMC Shuttle will take you there for free 3 days a week! Continue Reading

As you all know, this year is coming to a close. Since I am a commuter, making friends hasn’t always been easy. At times, I have even felt lonely. During my first semester, I made a small group of friends from a few of my classes. However, we only started to become close and talk more towards the end of the semester. We didn’t keep in close contact over winter break and two of them transferred. That was very sad, but it was okay because I was determined to make more friends this semester.
I got to my first class of the spring semester, and one of these friends ended up being in two of my classes. This made me very happy to have a friend and helped to not feel so alone. Throughout the spring semester, I also made a bunch of friends in my Education classes. They are a great group of people, and we all bond a lot over our academics. It has also been easier to become friends with people this semester because I have multiple classes with some of the same people. Continue Reading
