Check out the latest issue of The Mount magazine
Mount St. Mary's College is proud to be home to a growing number of students who have served — or still are serving — in the U.S. military. In our latest issue of The Mount magazine, our cover story, “In Service to Veterans,” profiles just a few of the student-veterans on campus who are helping to advance a new brand of service at the College.
Discover how these student-veterans are helping the Mount increase its commitment to military-related students. It's thanks to their leadership and example that Mount St. Mary's now has a Veterans Outreach Association, a dedicated veteran student liaison and a host of new services, scholarships and best practices designed to assist service members as they transition back to the classroom.
