Alumni Association

Whether you graduated this year or in Emmanuel's first graduating class of 1923, you are a very important part of our Alumni Association. Staying connected to your alma mater and your class members should be easy and fun. Whether you live in Boston, Seattle, places in between or overseas, the Association encourages you to keep up to date with your classmates through the numerous clubs and groups, special programs and events offered, including Alumni Weekend.

The Alumni Association is governed by a Board of Directors, volunteers who are elected by alumni to two-year terms. The Board works with the College's Office of Development and Alumni Relations to provide a variety of ways for alumni to remain connected with each other and our Alma Mater.


Our Purpose

The purpose of the Association shall be to further Emmanuel College’s Catholic mission by challenging alumni to act, lead and give generously to others and to strengthen the bonds between the alumni and the College. The following values will guide the Association’s work: spirituality, service, pride, professionalism, relationships and traditions. The Association will translate into action the strong mission, beliefs and legacy of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and Emmanuel College by building bridges and inspiring involvement within the alumni community.
