A Letter From President Aretz
Welcome U.S. Veterans,
As a fellow veteran, I am happy to welcome you to Mount St. Joseph University. This is an excellent place to begin your college studies or finish your degree. You will find the Mount an institution of exceptional character and support as you pursue your studies.
I have the privilege of serving as the Mount’s president after 28 years of service in the US Air Force, mostly as a professor at the USAF Academy. The principles that I live by and that guide me in my role as a leader are based on the virtues of duty and honor so ingrained in us during our time in the military.
I believe that you will not only benefit from the experience of studying at the Mount, but that you will bring valuable leadership to the classroom and enrich the campus environment for us all. As a veteran, you'll bring experience, honor and integrity to your role as a Mount student. These are qualities that the Mount strives to instill in all its graduates.
