My Nursing Experience at MSMC

by

We caught up with senior Nursing major Nicolette Moustouka to talk about her experience in the Nursing program at the Mount – and how she handles a full schedule of study, Division III athletics, and extracurriculars.

KL: What made you want to be a nurse?

Nicolette: I chose to go into Nursing because I have a passion for caring for others and being there for them. It’s also a career path that I know is interesting and is going to challenge me. It’s a field where you keep on learning new things. And most importantly I know I can make a difference in someone’s life.

KL: Why did you specifically choose the Mount to pursue your nursing career?

Nicolette: One of the reasons I chose to study Nursing at the Mount is because of the small class sizes. Small class sizes allow for individualized attention and that’s something you need in a rigorous program like this. The professors also know their students by names and want to see their students succeed. Every teacher has an open door policy, and if you are struggling, they are always there to help you. What I also love about the Nursing program at the Mount is how close the Nursing majors in my graduating class are. There is always someone you can lean on if you have a question or don’t understand a topic.

KL: What else are you involved in at the Mount?

Nicolette: I am a resident assistant, part of the Women’s Softball team, a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, and a Leadership Scholar. Continue Reading

Being an RA at the Mount

by

My name is Danielle Zaleski, and I am a senior resident assistant for freshman residents in Sakac Hall.

I started my RA journey last year with upper classmen in College Court 16, and I haven’t looked back since. If I were to go back and do this entire process again, the only thing I would change would be applying for this position right after freshman year!

Taking on this responsibility has opened multiple doors including having better relationships with faculty on campus, helping build my leadership skills, and blessing me with a family I like to call Res Life. I wouldn’t say this job is easy and like any other job it has its ups and downs, but at the end of the day, being able to be a piece that helped make a fellow students college experience the best it could possibly be is an honor.

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!

Hey Class of 2021! Did you know that there are only 87 days until move in? Have you figured out how you’re going to decorate your dorm yet? Keep reading for tips from current students and recent alums about ways to personalize your room in Sakac or Guzman!

Steven Juergensen, Class of 2017 – “Conversation starters!! Posters of your favorite bands and photos of your friends and yourself doing something you love.” Wall art can not only help to liven up the space, but can also be a great way to start a conversation with someone new.

Daria Sullivan, Class of 2017 – “Use the space under your bed!!! This additional space is perfect for food, storage, drinks, or shoes (etc). Although it may not look like a whole lot, using that space will de-clutter your desk area and make dorm living easier!” Continue Reading

Life on Campus: According to an RA

by

Hello! My name is Caleb Oliver, and I am an RA in the freshman dorm, Guzman Hall, here at Mount Saint Mary College. Overall, I enjoy being a freshman RA, because I get to be a significant part of my residents’ experience as new students on campus.

Prospective students can expect spacious residence halls that are perfect for college students. Freshman dorms are cable ready, and equipped with a refrigerator and a microwave in each room. There is even a laundry room on the lower level of the building! All of these comforts make it easy for students to adjust to their first year of college.
