Points of Pride

Home » Points of Pride
Mount Aloysius College’s reputation ripples across the state of Pennsylvania, from coast to coast of the United States and has surfed across oceans to make a name for itself across the world. Mounties excel in the classroom, on the athletic field and just last year, donated over 20,000 hours of community service.

There is plenty for Mounties to be proud of, but these are a few of our favorites.
