School’s Comments:

Institution: Mount St. Mary’s University is proudly and joyfully Catholic. We fully embrace the letter and spirit of Ex Corde Ecclesiae. This teaching is embodied in our governing documents.

President's Oath: President Tim Trainor will make the public "Profession of Faith" and take the "Oath of Fidelity" at his inauguration on Oct. 23. He will not have taken those steps at press time for this publication.

* Coed Dorms: In reference to our residence halls, students are divided by secured floors, with women on one floor and men on another — or they are in separate, private apartments. Additionally, we enforce a strong visitation policy wherein students and guests are not allowed on opposite gender’s floors after midnight on weekdays and after 2am on weekends. This policy allows the Mount to successfully develop students capable of living in an adult community while practicing the highest moral standards.
