Golden Gaels


Our most cherished alumni...

Our Golden Gaels alumni, those who graduated 50 or more years ago, are about the most cherished of our alumni. For over a half century, these remarkable individuals have carried the torch of excellence and service, embodying the values of our alma mater long after their graduation. They know, perhaps best of all, the rich history and enduring legacy of Saint Mary's College. 

Join us as we honor their achievements, reminisce about cherished memories, and forge new connections that span generations. 

Join a special event honoring the Gaels celebrating 50-plus years since graduating from Saint Mary's!

Last Year's Luncheon

In June 2023, we hosted more than 60 alumni and spouses for a Golden Gael reception at Saint Mary's College. We started by celebrating mass, enjoying a reception and lunch, and hearing from classmate Robert Hass '63.
