Welcome from the President

Welcome to the 2016-2017 academic year at the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s college.

We are looking forward to another great year for the Ladies of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College, the oldest women’s organization affiliated with the University.  Saint Mary’s College has been a women’s organization for 172 years, and I am a proud alumna of the College.

I am your president for the 2016-2017 year and am proud to represent this organization.  The purpose of the Ladies of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College (LND/SMC) is to promote the educational, social and cultural welfare of its members, to foster friendship within the Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s family and to encourage service to the University and College.  We are a non-profit organization administered by volunteers.  All women with any connection to the University or College (other than undergraduate students) are eligible for membership.  We encourage you to join us for our opening reception on September 27 at 7:00 pm in Club Naimoli, Joyce Pavilion, to learn about our programs and interest groups.  We welcome your participation, special interests, and passion.  I look forward to greeting you in person that night.

Thank you.

From the President . . .
