New Ways of Reaching Out

Saint Mary’s has launched several new initiatives in the last few months to help alumni stay in closer touch with the College and with each other. The Jerome Web portal, a new electronic newsletter, and Saint Mary’s online magazine all deliver College news and alumni connections in timely and convenient ways.

The jerome web portal, officially launched September 23, has already garnered a great response from alumni, according to the alumni relations office.

“It’s a great way for Gaels – particularly recent grads – to stay in touch,” says Courtney Carmignani ‘05. Test groups of alumni have also offered constructive suggestions for improvement, many of which have been slated for implementation.

The online version of Saint Mary’s magazine offers a convenient alternative format for reading or sharing favorite magazine stories. The SMC Update e-newsletter, launched in August, will now be distributed monthly.

The alumni office is interested in hearing readers’ comments about these new initiatives; please send your suggestions to
