Welcome Mount Alumnae,
I am delighted to welcome you to the alumnae website. We are the Mount -- a sisterhood of women who met on a lovely Hill in Watchung, New Jersey. The Office of Alumnae Relations serves as a liaison between students and programs at the Mount today and yesterday’s graduates.
A Mount graduate becomes a member of the Alumnae Association on Graduation Day. The Alumnae Association is comprised of women from hundreds of disciplines and a variety of cultures, who together create the Mount tapestry. The Alumnae Association is directed by a dedicated group of volunteer leaders and exists to:
- provide strong ties to each other and to today’s Mount students
- serve as a networking opportunity for graduates, both professional and social
- assist in keeping The Mount strong and viable and in carrying on time-honored traditions
are a vital component of the Alumnae Association and serve as an integral link between their respective classes and the Academy.
The Office of Alumnae Relations, the Alumnae Association Executive Board and the Mount Saint Mary Academy Class Agents help connect more than 6,000 Mount graduates worldwide, with each other and with the Academy, through initiatives including events, career fairs, reunions, an emerging affinity group program, online and printed publications and young alumnae events, both in-person and virtual. The goal is to support Mount traditions, continue to demonstrate our love for the Sisters of Mercy and the Mercy core values, and ensure the continued bond of Mount sisters and family members.
The Alumnae Association meets 4-5 times a year. During the pandemic, meetings are being held virtually, via Zoom. All alumnae are welcome.
