Our Traditions

As you explore and learn about Mount Mary, discover campus traditions that date back nearly 100 years.

  • Academic Investiture—Since 1931, new students have been formally welcomed into Mount Mary University by the college president. This fall tradition features the “cap and gown pledge,” written by Dr. Edward A. Fitzpatrick.
  • Christmas on the Mount—Dating back to 1935 when the junior class hosted students and faculty at an old-fashioned Christmas party, this program is now hosted by Student Affairs and highlights the season for students, faculty, staff and administration.
  • Starving Artists Show®—Held yearly in September, this show—sponsored by the Mount Mary Alumnae Association for the past 44 years—features local and national artists. It’s been named one of the top 100 fine arts fairs in the United States by Art Fair Source Book.
  • Step Singing—The Student Leadership and Service Awards are presented at this event, held in conjunction with Mount Mary’s baccalaureate and graduation activities.
