Marianapolis is committed to maintaining a strong and vibrant alumni community for our graduates through regional events and the annual Alumni Weekend celebration. Alumni connect with current students through the Lunch & Learn alumni speaker series, athletic events, and bi-annual concerts, art shows and dance showcases.
We make these efforts with hope that Marianapolis will continue to feel like home.
An integral part of alumni relations at Marianapolis is the Alumni Association. The Association was formed in 2012, in the hopes of reconnecting lost alumni back to Marianapolis. The Board currently has 12 members, ranging in class years from 1968 to 2016.
