Letter From the Alumni President

By Maroon & White | spring 2014

Welcome to our newly designed issue of the Maroon & White. We hope you enjoy the fresh new look.

The spring issue is published when our graduating students are about to cross the stage to become our newest alumni. It seemed fitting to highlight a few of our outstanding students-it was a tough choice but we think you’ll enjoy the four we chose. We wish our new grads all the best and welcome you to the alumni family of over 42,000 all over the world. Make sure to stay in touch and let us know about your accomplishments and milestones.

We’re excited to tell you that in the near future M&W will be available in an upgraded digital format. Research shows that increasingly younger alumni prefer digital content more than the traditional printed magazine. The digital M&W will also be friendlier to the environment, resulting in a reduction of almost 800,000 printed pages per year.

Whether you prefer to read your magazine via smartphone, tablet or in print, we hope you will continue to enjoy reading stories about the successes of our students, faculty and alumni, and maintain your connection to Saint Mary’s.
