“The Mount was my #1 college choice after visiting it just once,” says Angelica Rolka ’20.
“I was very shy when I first started out, avoiding all the freshman activities and keeping to myself in the dorm room,” she reminisces. “My freshman roommate, now best friend, Emily Fricano, was the first Mount person I talked to and connected with. Now you can see me sitting in the View chatting away with Father Greg and many other Mount students.”
