The phvsiral appearance of IVloiuit Wrnon is pleas

ing to the naked eye. but improvements

never hurt.

The paths that lead from the .Academic Building to the

dorms were torn up and transformed into level, cement

blocks. Somers enjoyed a fresh paint job. as did Lloyd

white, blue, and

turquoise, found a lutme on the waUs of the gym and

the dining hall.

The resources of Mount Vernon are extended

through the member schools of the Consortium of Uni

versities of the Washington Metropolitan .4rea. Crossregistration,

access to other libraries, and collabora

tion of a calendar of events are a few of the features of

the Consortium. The eleven members are: American

University, Catholic University, Gallaudet University,

Georgetown University, George Washington Uni

versity, Howard University, Marymount University,

Trinity College, the University of Maryland, and the

University of the District of Columbia.

Mount Vernon students can pose as students from

other universities and they wouldn't be lying. This

feature is truly an advantage, especially when you

attend a women's college.

Several students took courses at the various con-

hortium universities this year. Not only did these

students benefit academically, but they also found that

professors and students at the neighboring institutions

greeted them with open arms.

Transportation posed a problem initially,

and those

without cars, resorted to bikes and long hikes. Mount

Vernon, however, attempted to solve the problem by

offering a van service, which made runs to Georgetown

University, M Street, George Washington University,

DuPont ("ircle, and American University.

Located in the "college town" of Georgetown, dubbed G-

town by most students. Mount Vernon is in the cultural ami

historv and

social heart of the nation's capital. ^ ith a long

the C & O Canal, Georgetown remains the center of pubs.

restaurants, and spirits in D.C.

The pubs and clubs are active all week long, but thev thrive

on the weekends. .Mount \ ernon students see one an

always

other in a Georgetown pub of dance club. Furthermore, one

is able to meet many men dashing, young in such establish

ments. The abundance of restaurants gives people a variety

of choices when they are hungry.

.\x the center of Georgetown, there is constant action, and

people are always there. This center is the intersection of

Wisconsin Avenue and M Street. M Street flows into down

town D.C, and Wisconsin Avenue heads for the classy

Washington Harbour.

Georgetown also has an abundance of different stores.

Georgetown Park, a four story shopping mall is a hot spot

for the latest fashions. .As well, many specialty stores can he

found up and down the streets of Georgetown.

The residential areas of Georgetown are comprised of

14 G-town

classic row houses that capture the early .-Vmerican style in

construction. A new development of brick and glass row houses

off Foxhall Road sold for $995,699 last October. The classic

appearance and prime location earned this staggering price.

(-town offers an active night life, fine dining, stylish

clothing, and gorgeous

architecture all of which are

advantageous to the young women of Mount Vernon College.

An underclassman is a student who perpetualK de

sires to be a member of the preceding class until she

finally

reaches .Senior Year. Then, she wishes to be a

Freshman once again, even if repeating the grueling

process is necessary.

The underclassmen of Mount Vernon are a

College

uiufied group of yoinig women committed to receiving a

solid education and having a good time while doing

so. They have their own personalities, goals, and char

acteristics, which distinguishes each student from her

peers.

As the underclassmen of Mount V ernon account for

over 75% of the student body, their presence demands

attention. .Juniors, sophomores, and freshmen do not

merely blend into the background. Their vivacious in

teraction with each other adds to the overall "close"

environment of Mount Vernon. Small ninnbers are

i7iore personal, and this is just one more advantage of

Mount Vernon (college.

The graduates of 1989 were an enthusiastic group of

women bound for success in the professional world. On

May 14, 1989. Mother's Day,

Dr. Jane Evans, Pres

ident of Mount \ ernon College, awarded ninety-six de

grees to the graduates. The ceremony, held on the

(juadrangle, was the climax of every students" aca

demic career. The degree from Mount Vernon College

made each woman even young more accomplished and

distinguished than before.

Mount Vernon will miss the faces of the class of 1989,

Congratulations and good luck. See ya at the next re

The advantage of being located in the nation's cap

ital is the availability of patronage from local busi

nesses. I'atrons and businesses supported

the Mount

Vernon yearbook this year, because we have had a his

tory of association with them. This relationship pro

vided some students with employment opportunities.

The more frequently a student visited a shop, the more

fre(juently a manager or owner recognized her, and.

therefore, the more frequently jobs were offered. The

entire community of Mount \ ernon w ishes to thank the

following businesses, patrons, and organizations for

their support.

Several of us remember the day we

interviewed Kathy Ryan for the position of

Student .Activities Coordinator. We were

overjoyed that she accepted the job. because

we foinid her friendly, ambitious, and

energetic.

But little did we know what she would end

Dedication

up doing for the entire student body. Kathy

has brought life back on to the Mount Vernon

campus. Never before have so many activities

been planned and attended. Advisor to the

Student Government Association and the

yearbook staff, Kathy kept spirits up and

pushed everyone lo do her best. Kathy

at Mount

literally spent 24 hours a day

Vernon (yes, Kath, we all finally found out

that you live in Pelham!)

and we know we

probably drove her crazy.

But who will ever forget chats in Kathy's

office about academics, activities, and/or

men?! One thing for sure, we will never forget

Kathy. Thanks for all of the advantages

you've given us Kath we love you!
