A Lifetime of MSMC

It’s weird to think I have spent more than half my life on the Mount Saint Mary College campus. I became a Knight when I was 10 and I started middle school at Bishop Dunn Memorial.

Most graduates look back at their years on campus and reminisce about all their “firsts.” Their first all-nighter, their first friend, first write up. And yea, I look at all of those too with a smile spread across my face, but I also look back to my “first firsts.” Like, my first musical debut on the Aquinas stage in sixth grade. My first science lab taught by Dr. Bhalla in seventh grade. My first eight grade dance in the Hudson Auditorium.

I sat down with sophomores Julia Loda and Julia Loprinzo to talk about the misconceptions they had about college.

Loda (left) is an IT major with a certification in Childhood Education, and Loprinzo (right) is a Social Science and History major with a certification in Childhood Education.

A common misconception about their major is that Childhood Education students just color and grade papers about the ABC’s, but that is not the case. Loda says, “Lesson planning takes hours. People don’t realize how much work their teachers put into all their daily lessons.”

Top 6 Things You Need to Know Before Registration

By Dayna Dwyer, Academic Coach

Registration is one of the most nail biting moments of any student’s semester. Waking up at 7:00 AM and making a mad dash toward your laptop, no coffee even in sight yet. We’ve put together some tips to help you through the process with the least amount of stress possible.

  1. Advising Months

During the months of March and November, students should plan to meet with their Academic Coach and their Academic Advisor in their major area of study to formulate a plan for the next semester. The purpose of these meetings is to ensure that students are on the right track per their academic program and are taking all of the necessary and mandatory classes in order to stay on track for graduation. You’ll want to meet with your Coach and Advisor to determine which classes you will be registering for.

  1. Have “Back Up” Classes

Sometimes the classes you want to take are full before you are able to register for them. In these cases, it is smart to have some “back up” classes that you could register for that also meet your academic requirements. For example, “I want to take U.S. History 1, but if it is full, I can take World History 1 instead.” This way, if a class is unexpectedly full and you cannot register for it, you already know what your next option is!
