My favorite memory at the Mount is when I was selected to present a paper I had written on the English Reformation at the Humanities Symposium and again at a regional conference.
What is your favorite vacation destination?

Why did you decide to join the Admission team?
After working in the television post-production industry for a few years, I chose to change career paths. I decided to join the Admission Team at the Mount because I see it as an opportunity to give back to the school and community that helped shape me into the person I am today.

Network as much as possible. It does not matter what year you are, it is never too early or too late to make new connections on and off campus.
