Mountward Bound: Making the transition to college life fun and rewarding

Emmitsburg, Maryland - Hear and see from members of the Class of 2017 taking part in Mountward Bound - a tradition at Mount St. Mary's University where incoming first-year students have the opportunity to participate in pre-orientation trips with their new fellow classmates.  These trips involve exploration, engagement and discovery with the Mount Community and new classmates.
