Mount St. Mary's U. Offers Array of Summer Programs for Freshmen

The MountMount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Md., is offering a choice of five summer programs specifically for incoming freshmen—the Class of 2018—according to the University.

The first program, which has the theme of “Encounter,” is a week-long retreat led by upperclassmen at the University. The incoming freshmen engage in "fellowship, reflecting with your peers, sports, and free time."  The program focuses on helping students "transition from home to campus life" with an emphasis on academics and "living your faith."

The "Urban Ops" program is dedicated to serving the people of Baltimore by building and restoring houses with the People’s Homesteading Group of Baltimore. Attendees also have the opportunity to take advantage of "Baltimore traditions like an Orioles game!"  The fourth program, titled “Serve,” allows participants to gain firsthand experience serving the poor.

The “Exploration” program enables students to spend several days camping, climbing, canoeing and enjoying the outdoors surrounding the Mount. In the "Unity" program, students "spend 5 taking a journey to the many iconic and historical attractions" in the Emmitsburg region.

In addition to the unique offerings, each program is geared to help the freshmen transition to campus life.

Mount St. Mary's University is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
