Time-honored traditions at the Mount

Two of Mount Saint Mary's time-honored student traditions took place again this spring on each of the University's campuses.

At the Mount's Chalon Campus, Athenians participated in Mary's Day, the annual end-of-year ceremony and awards for students in the University's traditional baccalaureate program. This is a tradition that dates all the way back to 1933, when students and some of the University's founding Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet led a procession and ceremony at Mary's statue on campus.

And at the Mount's Doheny Campus, students and faculty gathered for Mount Saint Mary's annual Laurel Awards - a day that has celebrated students in our Associate in Arts program since 1974.

Each of these traditions feature student awards named for prominent leaders, sisters and alums from the University's past. Check out a photo album of photos from this year's ceremonies on Mount Saint Mary's Facebook page.
