  • Happy Thursday, Mounties! What do you think of this beautiful fall day before break starts tomorrow?
  •  #Mountiepride  for our incredible Board of Trustees who are such wonderful stewards of our mission and institution. They were masked up (Mountie-style) for a meeting on campus this morning.
  • Though he's been a Mountie for over a year now, we are proud and honored to finally (officially!) welcome President John McKeegan to his role as the 15th President of Mount Aloysius College. His love and appreciation for this campus, its community, and the Mercy values they represent are already palpable, and we cannot wait to see where his guidance takes us in the future. We've had an awesome two days of celebrating this campus and its heritage. Go Mounties!
  • Can we call this “wading for grading?” Mountie Water Ecology students took advantage of the beautiful weather with a sampling project off-campus.  #badjoke
