Studying is something that every college student has to do but never ever wants to. It is usually extremely stressful and can make you feel like it will never end. A great way to help you survive the endless and torturous hours of studying is with music. Music can make studying go by quicker and help with maintaining your focus. The type of music you should listen to completely depends on your interest, and what kind of work you are doing!

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
