The Alumni Association met for the first time after Commencement exercises for the first graduating class on June 18, 1919.

According to class historian Julia Warner, this was the first, last, and only time that the Alumnae Association had 100 percent attendance. The women initiated the process of writing a constitution and by-laws for the new Association.

  • Since those early beginnings, the Association has greatly increased in numbers and programs. The first Reunion was held in 1924. Publication of the Alumnae Annual also began that year. It became a quarterly magazine in 1926.

Today the College boasts more than 30,000 alumni living in all 50 states and in 98 nations around the world. The percentage of men has grown steadily since 1971 when the College graduated the first coeducational class. Today more than 31 percent of alumni are men.
