Students bond in small groups during Orientation at the Mount each summer. Here, a pair of teams from the Class of 2020 gather for a photo at Chalon Orientation.

The Mount meets the Class of 2020

The countdown to a new school year at Mount Saint Mary's University has officially begun.  

Members of the incoming Class of 2020 have completed their summer Orientation sessions at the Mount's Chalon and Doheny Campuses. Nearly 1,200 students and parents took advantage of the opportunities to tour campus, learn about University resources, and meet with faculty members and academic advisors. Incoming Athenians also had the chance to get to know their fellow classmates, as well as older students serving as Orientation leaders. 

The events were organized by the Mount's Women's Leadership and Student Involvement team with support from staff, faculty and returning students. University alums also welcome the newest generation of Athenians by hosting a mixer that featured an alum "mugging" — ice cream floats in mugs adorned with handwritten notes of encouragement from alumnae. 

Move-In Weekend is Aug. 20-21 and Welcome Week kicks off Mount Saint Mary's fall semester Aug. 22-28. The University will share news and pics from the school year's opening week on Twitter and Instagram: @MSMU_LA and #MSMUnstoppable.
