A Letter from a Mountie

Hello fellow Mounties, My name is Jacob Pasley and I am another proud Mount Aloysius Alumni.  I wanted to reach out to share my experiences and what I realized about the time I spent at Mount Aloysius College. I earned my Bachelors of Science Degree in Medical Imaging and Radiography at Mount Aloysius College in December of 2018. I left college uncertain of where my degree would take me, what opportunities I would have, and [...]

A Desire to Help People

When Dr. Megan Chicoine, ‘15, was a student in the pre-chiropractic 3+1 program at Mount Aloysius, she participated in two service trips, one to Camden, New Jersey, and the other to Guyana, South America. Through these trips, her eyes were opened to the rest of the world, and she was able to help others.  This desire to help people continued into her career, as she was recently hired as a chiropractor at North Carolina-based practice, [...]

‘Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Do’

When Elizabeth Ditty, ‘16, was in elementary school, she was determined to be a teacher at Tyrone Elementary School in Tyrone, PA.  Why that particular school? It was the school she attended, and she loved it. Now, after spending three years teaching preschool at The Goddard School in the State College area, Liz is returning to Tyrone as a kindergarten teacher. And she credits her teachers--from Tyrone Elementary to Mount Aloysius--for helping her to succeed [...]

Leaving the Comfort Zone

As a business administration major, Julianna Wright, ‘20, wanted an internship that not only challenged her, but also helped to expand her skills and knowledge. When she learned about the internship opportunity at JWF Industries, she was interested. “I knew it was out of my comfort zone,” Julianna said. “I had no prior knowledge or experience in the manufacturing industry, but I was up for the challenge. I also felt confident in the company’s ability [...]

Helping Others Succeed

Van Lanzendorfer, ’18, always wanted to help people, but he wasn’t certain about what he wanted to study until his girlfriend, now his wife, showed him the physical therapist assistant program at the Mount. “I signed up right away,” Van said. Now, as a stretch therapist and trainer at Revival Fitness and Rehab in Altoona, PA, Van says he uses the knowledge he gained at MAC every day. He works with clients of all ages [...]

Let’s Get Digital

Like most young millennials, Alex Way ‘18, ‘20, developed an interest in video editing, recording, filming, and photography in high school. The rise of social media and prevalence of digital media-based assignments in class created a spark that would grow and develop as Alex transitioned into life at Mount Aloysius College. “Finding out that there was an entire dedicated branch of student workers at Mount Aloysius for maintaining the college's communications and social media presence [...]

Dental Inspiration

When Brady Wright was growing up, he had “a really cool dentist.” “He was highly interactive, always explaining everything he was doing step-by-step, talked to me about personal life, and just kind of planted the seed that the dental profession was a good one to be in.” Brady, ‘16, followed the seed planted in him by his dentist to Mount Aloysius, and then to Lake Erie College of Medicine (LECOM), where he is studying to [...]

Discovering a Future in Criminology

During her time at Mount Aloysius, Brenna Wright was a starting libero on the College’s volleyball team. Liberos are valuable members of a volleyball team’s back row defense, and among the best passers on the team. It is perhaps this instinctive defensiveness and protectiveness that helped her find a career as a probation officer. She took an internship at the Cambria County Prison, where she was able to interact with inmates and other corrections [...]

Superstars On & Off the Field

While it's far from uncommon for Mount Aloysius athletes to be equally as dedicated to their time in the classroom as they are to practicing their sport, it isn’t every day that you get two consecutive conference award winners from the same major. Emily Goldyn, ‘19, who played singles and doubles tennis, double-majored in criminology and psychology and won the 2018-2019 AMCC Woman of the Year award. Katie Mirance, ‘20, majored in criminology and minored [...]
