How will you lead?

“My day is much better when I have already been to a working fire before my first class of the day,” says Ingrid Hazbon, C’21, who loves serving the local community as a firefighter and emergency medical technician (EMT). One morning the emergency didn’t come early enough, and Hazbon, dressed for class in sweatpants and slippers, had to leave class and respond to the call from a bad accident with somewhat inappropriate footwear.

One Goal at a Time

"I had some of the best times of my life at the Mount and soccer was a big part of that. Being able to play Division I soccer has been a dream since I was a little girl and allowed me to travel to places like England and Sweden. Most importantly, Mount soccer gave me some of my best friends that I’ll have for the rest of my life."

What will motivate you?

Mercedes Fuentes, C’19, a transfer student who came to the Mount two-and-a-half years ago, was caffeine-fueled for all of them. “Coffee became my best friend and something I couldn’t live without because of all the late night studying.” Passionate about cellular biology and microbiology, she’s hyper-focused on paying attention to the little things and is interested in how small organisms can do so much good and harm to our bodies.

He shared his music with crowds at clubs, shoe stores and bars.

Running the Race

Mount St. Mary's University Director of Cross Country and Track & Field Jay Phillips, C'05, MT'08, teaches student-athletes to learn from everyone they spend time with—to pay attention, listen and keep taking steps toward their best selves. In 2018, the men’s outdoor track and field team won their first Northeast Conference Track & Field title in 21 years, and Phillips and his staff were voted by colleagues as NEC Coaching Staff of the Year.

What will you create?
