Casey Thompson ‘04

Casey Thompson’s story at the Mount began in 1997 as a traditional student and football player.  He left after two years and entered the work world waiting tables. Thompson then returned to the Mount in 2003 as an adult student graduating with his B.A. in Liberal Studies in 2004.

Returning to the Mount

After recently leaving Miami University as a residence hall director and obtaining his M.S. in student affairs in higher education, Thompson re-joined the Mount again in October, 2013 as the Academic Exploration Program Advisor. His daily responsibilities include: helping undeclared freshmen with core classes and assisting them declare a major by the end of their freshmen year.

Thompson was drawn to the Mount because of its student centered atmosphere. “I came to the Mount to re-write the narrative of the community who gave so much to me during a stressful time in my life,” he says.
