The Mount Reflects: Living On Campus

Class of 2021!! There is exactly one month until move-in day. As you hurry around collecting dorm essentials, we thought we’d share with you some of the reasons Mount students love living on campus!

Danielle Petricca, Class of 2020 – “Being able to have fun with your friends whenever you want and being so close to school that you can wake up and be in class in 10 minutes. It’s a new experience to live away from home and it brings out independence that you might not even know you had. It creates a huge difference between high school and college.”

Christina Mistretta, Class of 2019 – “Getting to know people and making close relationships, and Late Knight events!”

Megan Torpey, Class of 2018 – “Being close to your friends 24/7!”

Nicole Laghezza, Class of 2019 – “Being so close to your classes. It’s only a 5 minute walk!”

Men’s Baseball Team – “Tons of campus activities, always around your friends, and accessibility to everything on campus (food, athletic buildings, study spaces).”

Ashley Lane, Class of 2018 – “The best part of living on campus is definitely always having friends around. Living with your friends provides constant entertainment and they are also a great support system. Another great aspect of living on campus is that it makes getting involved and going to events so much more enjoyable, since they’re within walking distance from your bedroom.”

Amanda Greenwood, Class of 2019 – “Living on campus is great because your friends are never too far away when you need them!”

Alex Perlak, Class of 2020 – “Everything is right here. Everything is in walking distance and you don’t have to drive looking for food or something to do because there is always something happening at the Mount. I also loved living on campus because I got to have a roommate and experience one of the greatest parts of being a college student, autonomy.”

So there you have it – 8+ reasons why living at the Mount is great! As you start to pack, make sure you check out our handy “What to Bring to Campus” list for more information. We’ll see you in a month, Class of 2021!
