Carondelet Alumnae e-News l July 2020


In recent alumnae communications we shared our plan to offer a survey to learn more about your student experience at Carondelet as it relates to inclusion, diversity, and equity. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey if you haven't already done so.

Carondelet graduate, Bella Orantes '13 , works at USC Medical Center and welcomes the newest members of society safely into this world. Thank you Bella for your dedication to your profession. Blessings of safety to you and all frontline workers in the battle against the pandemic.

Wishing you and your loved ones continued health and happiness
College Connections
"Which College?" Do you remember asking yourself that question?

What if you had the chance to speak with an alumna about her college experience before deciding?

They want to TALK to you!

If you are a current college student or a recent graduate (2018-2023), our students would love to speak with you! They're curious about college and campus life, your academic path, sorority life, athletics, clubs and organizations, etc.

Virtual calls will be held on Wednesday afternoons this fall during Carondelet exploratory.

Reunion Year Donation
Their Future is in Your Hands
One of our goals for the coming double reunion in 2021 is to reach 100% participation in alumnae support for Carondelet. Your contributions to the Alumnae Scholarship Fund, Annual Fund, Capital Campaign, and a wide range of other areas throughout campus make a HUGE difference for our students and fill a critical need at Carondelet.

Last year, the Alumnae Scholarship Fund distributed $8,000+ to students in need. This year, the need is greater and we are hoping to push our collective assistance well beyond $10,000.

Please consider a donation to Carondelet in honor of your anniversary year. Every gift - no matter the amount and whether outright, through a multi-year pledge, enhanced by corporate match, via appreciated stock, or bequest - makes an immediate impact. If you have recently given, please accept our sincere thanks and warm congratulations on this important milestone in your alumnae experience.
