Rare Opportunities That Can't Be Found at Other Schools

Grace Puglisi '25
My experience at the Mount has been nothing short of amazing. I am extremely grateful for Mount Saint Mary community. It has helped me to form lifelong relationships and has provided me with rare opportunities that can’t be found at other schools. For example, my Euro Challenge team competed in the national competition and came in first place this year! We are one of the few schools in the area that participate and we won a trip to Washington, DC to visit the International Monetary Fund, the Italian and Latvian embassies, and the Treasury.

As a three-sport athlete who also participates in many extra-curriculars activities, I am very involved at the Mount. Through these activities, I have engaged with many faculty members and students. In all of them, the teachers and coaches have been supportive, encouraging, and truly want their students and players to succeed. The Mount has also pushed me and helped me to develop. The plethora of courses offered at Mount means there is something for everyone and has allowed me to explore different areas that I may be interested in pursuing later in life. Through Mock Trial and Euro Challenge, I have improved exponentially as a public speaker while bonding with my classmates. Overall, my experience at the Mount has been fun, formative, and unforgettable, and I am very grateful that it is not over yet.
