  • DUST OFF THAT NAMETAG: Alumnae/i in class years ending in 2 and 7 are just a few weeks away from celebrating and reconnecting on campus. Reunion 2012 kicks off April 12 with special events for the Class of 1962. It’s not too late to register online (registration open until April 1)!
  • MAKE A REUNION GIFT: Sisters across the ages, mark your upcoming celebration with a gift to the college that gave you so much. Each contribution adds to your class’ participation goal and each dollar raised enables Mary Baldwin to provide the transformational education that we wish for every student. Visit us online or call us at 800-763-7359. Your generosity is truly appreciated!
  • AND THE SURVEY SAYS: If you're an alumna/us, you can let MBC faculty and staff know right now how well they do what they set out to do. Take our online survey — the fifth one in 20 years to poll the entire alumnae/i base — to help the college assess how it is fulfilling its mission.
