By now you’ve heard about the new core curriculum, and you’re probably aware that these changes could affect you and your time at the Mount. Changes to established processes often bring anxiety and confusion, but the Mount’s dedicated faculty and staff are doing everything they can to make sure these changes are implemented with ease and efficiency.

The new core curriculum will be standard for incoming freshmen, but current students have a decision to make: to stay with the current core curriculum, or to make the switch to the new core.  Faculty members have already attended training sessions in which they received a tool to help their students determine the best decision on a case-by-case basis. However, the final responsibility for the choice lies with each individual student, which is why the Academic Advising Resource Center is holding several student training workshops to ensure that students have all of the necessary information and resources to determine their best option.

Each workshop will last about 30 minutes and students who attend will be given a tool to help them determine their best option.

Workshops will be held in CL 201 on the following days:

  • Monday Feb. 25—11 a.m. or 2 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 26—5:45 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 27—11 a.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 28—10:40 a.m. or 5:45 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.
  • Friday, March 1—10 a.m.
