One word to describe the Mount: Vibrant

Nicholas Tucker ’21 has only been at the Mount two years and has already made a huge impact on the campus community. Whether it’s his involvement with various organizations on campus or just his bright, upbeat personality, Nick has definitely made a positive name for himself so far.

His love for the school shows each and every day. “Every day at the Mount is filled with so many diverse surprises and exciting moments, which as a result, leads me to cherish the time that I am at the Mount even more.” The Mount has been able to open so many doors for Nick and being able to do everything he does while balancing being a student is a prime example of a true student leader.

In our “Meet the Mount” series, we’ll be highlighting some of the Mount’s people – our students, faculty, staff, and alumni – who make this college the wonderful community it is.

Madison Herley ’19


Class Year: Senior

Major: Media Studies

Concentration: Production

Minors: Journalism and Art

Reason for picking that major: My favorite thing about studying Media Studies and Production is that it’s so hands on. Our professors allow us to work in groups and go out into the community to capture video work. I’ve always seen myself working in the television industry as a producer. Being in this profession there is never a dull moment and every day there is something different to do.

Campus Activities/Jobs: Resident Assistant (RA)

Reason for getting involved: I chose to get involve on campus because I wanted to be apart of something. Freshman year you got to see that people had each other already. They all had a second family at the Mount. I wanted to have a second “family” that I could count on and that’s what being an RA did for me. This has shaped my campus experience because I got to be there for residents, too.

Favorite spot on campus: Dominican Center hill

One word to describe the Mount: Beautiful

Above: Madison Herley ’19 recently coordinated the Mount’s A.R.T. Show Part II in spring 2018.

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.

Life on Campus: According to an RA

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.
