Cresson, Pa. — Looking for a fun place to spend time outside? The Mount Aloysius College campus is filled with opportunities to explore the outdoors. The outdoor trail offers a 1.9 mile pathway in the woods just to the right of campus.

MAC professors understand the importance of utilizing the beautiful surrounding campus to help students become well balanced graduates. Dr. Sara Rutledge, professor of education, has improved the Mountie Trail with her education students this semester.

For the ED290 class project, mailboxes were installed on the pathway that contain family-friendly scavenger hunts and pencils. During the hunt, participants will observe and identify living and nonliving objects throughout the trail. This is a great activity to do with small children or big kids at heart!

Students at Mount Aloysius pick from over 70 academic programs which statistically earn good jobs or a ready pathway to graduate school. Mount Aloysius College’s NCAA Division III athletic status and the developing campus continues attracting students looking for a “next level” college experience.  Mount Aloysius students compete in 14 NCAA Division III sports.
