Your Athletic Teams

The College’s 15 NCAA Division III athletic programs seek the development of the whole person—mind, body, and spirit, and are designed to develop confidence, work ethic, communication skills, cohesion and unity. These skills and qualities enable students to pursue excellence in the classroom, in the arena of competition, and in their chosen profession. In fact, student athletes at the Mount affirm national studies that show academic performance is greater during a sports season; more than 50 Mount athletes earned conference academic honors for earning grade point averages of 3.3 or better.

In addition to academics, the Mount’s athletics programs promote character and leadership. During the 2013-14 academic year, the Skyline Conference, which is comprised of 10 colleges and universities in New York State, recognized 47 athletes for exceptional sportsmanship—14 of them were Mount Saint Vincent students.

Gifts to athletic teams enhance the impact of these programs, exposing students to new competitive opportunities and learning experiences. Gifts from alumnae/i, friends, and family allow student athletes to participate in regional and national competitions and tournaments. Contributions can be made in support of any Dolphins team.
