THE REFLECTOR 4? t % ' p ktfp. Rewarding History Recorded Over 60 Years Founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in 1925, Mount St. Mary ' s College has graduated 6,500 students in majors ranging from traditional liberal arts studies to individually designed programs. At the time of its founding, the college was housed temporar- ily at St. Mary ' s Academy, then located at Slauson and Crenshaw in Los Angeles. Two years later, in 1927, the Sisters purchased 36 acres from the Rodeo Land and Water Company at $4,500 per acre. The new site for the college stretched among the foothills of the Santa Monica mountains, 1100 feet above sea level, overlooking Los Angeles and 40 miles of Pacific Ocean. Twenty years later, an addi- tional purchase brought the Chalon campus to its pre- sent 56 acres. At the first commencement exercises, June 16, 1929, baccalaureate degrees were awarded to 10 students in the charter class. In 1962 the college expanded to its second campus on the Doheny Estate in central Los Angeles. The Doheny campus comple- ments the educational opportunities of the original Chalon campus in west Los Angeles by offering ca- reer-oriented Associate degree programs and graduate programs. 1 5- - $$ 1986 ' Reflector 7 Mount -n St. Ma ry ' s College 12001 Chalon Road Los Angeles California 90049 Published by Portrait Gallery Anaheim, California Volume 7 President Guided Excellent Staff President MSMC Sr. Magdalene Coughlin CSJ Exec.

Academic Exploration Encouraged Mount St. Mary ' s college is an academic community devoted to continuing exploration of our rela- tion to God, other persons, and na- ture. This exploration takes the form of programs designed to pro- vide experience in the principal modes of thought by which we reach understanding, and the strengths and limitations of these modes. The objectives are to assist the student to develop a disciplined and continuing curiosity, a recep- tivity to new ideas, and a base for evaluation of these ideas. Within the framework of these same major objectives, the college also offers programs in which the student en- gages in more intensive study ap- propriate to a specific career. In this the college ensures that it will not only directly serve the society that supports it, but will also enhance the student ' s awareness of an ever- changing context within which val- ues of the individual must operate. church dignitaries.

Loyola undergraduates help girl students of Mt. St. Mary ' s clean up the debris in the fire-damaged buildings. Three structures were hard hit by the brush fire, but heroic work at the height of the blaze saved the remainder. 11 Women Top Concern Of The College Several factors emerge from the history and environment of the col- lege that create a distinctive com- munity. A true academic communi- ty becomes possible — the total college — not just the classroom, the academic major of the course — is a learning environment. Histori- cally, the college is a liberal arts institution with a special concern for the education of women; how- ever, men are admitted to under- graduate music and nursing, to graduate programs, and to summer sessions. It is a small college of about 1,000 students on the two campuses. The Chalon campus primarily offers baccalaureate programs in liberal arts and sciences, and relat- ed professional training. The Do- heny campus offers a variety of programs ranging from associate through graduate, in which the me- tropolitan setting is a significant factor in learning.

The new residence was dedicated April 28, 1985, with Car- dinal Manning, Regent Alice K. Aldworth, and Sister Magdalen Coughlin attending. 16 Senior Class Leaders Did Fine Job SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS — Karen Garcia, treasurer; Allison Lunch, president; Shaun Armstrong, vice president; and Patty Corrales, secretary. This quartet was kept busy during the school year conducting the necessary class business and affairs. Mount Saint Mary ' s College class of 1986 was challenged to become the best people they could academically, spiritually, and socially be. Members of the class have grown from the par- ticipation in numerous activities at the Mount. Seniors attended leadership wor kshops, served the college as ASB representatives, Resident Assistants, health advocates, and in the Campus Ministry. The many academic accom- plishments included honors at Mary ' s Day and graduation, overseas study, plus research in- ternships, and sending a delega- tion to the Model United Na- tions. Many of the seniors have grown tremendously during their years at Mount St. Mary ' s College and it is the hope that they will carry on her spirit with them wherever they go. Because the seniors were the upperclass they had an addition- al responsibility for keeping the others informed on matters of mutual or overlapping concern.

' Mary ' s Day ' Highlighted School Year Fifty years ago Mary ' s Day was a celebration to honor the Blessed Mother Mary. The students pro- cessed in long gowns to the statue of Mary enshrined on campus and crowned her with a wreath of flowers. In the mid-sixties, the day included a special Mass and a luncheon, followed by a reception to initiate graduates into the alumnae association. Through the years, Mary ' s Day was highlight- ed by an awards convocation where seniors and underclass peo- ple accepted academic and co-cur- ricular service awards. Today, Mary ' s Day is a time ►vhen families and friends join the administrators and faculty in nonoring all students for their nany fine achievements. 33 34 35 • .£ . e.fP )6 4 f : ill linn 1 1 " • 37 38 Mary ' s Day Holds Great Significance 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 4 48 4t t oJu s$c v e 3
