Fr. Jim DonohueFr. Jim Donohue, chair of the depatment of theology, has been named the 2016-17 Delaware Valley Collegiate Hockey Conference Coach of the Year.

His longstanding work with club sports and the ice hockey team has been well documented and his ability to help shape the lives of Mount students is quite evident through the team’s numerous community service efforts.

Now the conference the team plays in has also recognized his efforts in a much deserved award. Congratulations Fr. Jim!

Five undergraduate students from the Mount presented their research at the 2017 Eastern Communication Association (ECA) Conference held in Boston from Wednesday, March 29 to Sunday, April 2.
Students were from the Media & the Catholic Church class of Brian Gilchrist, Ph.D., assistant professor from the department of communication.
These students had their research papers accepted by the Undergraduate Scholars Conference at ECA. What's even more impressive is that out of 165 undergraduates that submitted papers, the acceptance rate was less than 30 percent. Gilchrist noted that other conference attendees were very impressed by Mount students.
Congratulations to the following Mount students accepted to present:
