The Alumnae Association is looking forward to an exciting year with our graduates, friends and families of Villa Maria. Check out our 2017-2018 lineup of events and mark your calendars. We look forward to seeing you around campus and at our upcoming functions!
The 2017 Great Alum Hunt
July 15th-August 30th, Online Competition
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to help us reconnect with hundreds of alumnae who we have “lost” over the years. The “hunt” runs from July 15 through August 30th. Help us update our records! We have many alumnae in our database with invalid emails from college or outdated mailing addresses. Contact our Director of Alumnae Relations, Dee Ruley Person `95, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-854-6130 with updated information on your missing classmates. The person who provides valid information on the most people will win a $50 gift certificate to the school store. If you are not in the area, you can use your gift certificate online. So the hunt is on; help us reconnect the lost Villa Marians in the world to their alma mater
Villa Storms the Shore
PLEASE NOTE: The 2017 Villa Storms the Shore event is cancelled as the Villa community deeply mourns the loss of Brian Zwaan, a friend and supporter to everyone in the school community. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will join us at another Alumnae event soon.
A casual gathering down the shore with light drinks and refreshments.
