History

Founded in 1934, the Ladies of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College is a non-profit organization administered solely by volunteers. Each year, its activities reflect those of current interest within the University and College community. Some annual events include our Opening Reception, welcoming new members and old friends; a Holiday Tea, to honor new Life Members; and a Spring Reception, to celebrate the end of the academic year. In addition, there are numerous activities planned by the different Interest Groups.
