Mount Saint Vincent Welcomes Alumnae/i to 2015 Reunion Weekend
Riverdale, N.Y. – Almost 300 alumnae/i celebrated their alma mater at the College of Mount Saint Vincent this past weekend. The three-day Reunion Weekend was attended by classes ending in “0” and “5” (from 1950 to 2010), with special tributes to the Class of 1965 and 1990. The Class of 1965, who celebrated their 50th reunion, welcomed more than half of their graduating class at this year’s festivities.
Last weekend’s first-ever Fall Reunion featured a welcome BBQ, campus tours, a Reunion Mass, a performance of Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Red-Headed League by one of the College’s in-residency arts organizations, Red Monkey Theater Group, and an off-campus event for young alumnae/i at the Norwood Club in New York City, among many others. There were class gatherings and presentations, including a discussion on how to negotiate by author, expert negotiator, and alumna Carol Frohlinger ’75. Additionally, there was a panel on human trafficking, featuring James Donius, Ph.D., following the dedication of the College’s new Fishlinger Center for Public Policy Research.
This year, the Mount combined the annual event with Homecoming and Family Weekend. Alumnae/i were not only joined by fellow classmates, but by faculty, administrators, current students, and families, where they cheered for the Mount’s athletic teams, attended a festival on the Great Lawn, and learned more about the College’s wonderful and expanding programs, among many other activities.
