The first time I visited NMH, I was so impressed by my campus tour guide—she seemed to know everybody. But that’s the way it is here. It’s so accessible and you feel you can try anything. For instance, I love to sing, so I’m in the Mount Harmony a cappella group and have been in Concert Choir all four years. I really stretched myself this year and did the Stille Nacht descant solo for this winter’s Vespers concert. I even manage the choir for my workjob requirement.
The classes I’ve taken at NMH have been great, but I’ve also had incredible out-of-the-classroom experiences. Last spring, as part of our Humanities II course, about 17 of us went to South Africa. We went into the townships and it was so powerful to actually witness what we had studied.
