Get Connected for Service
Your resource for locating service and community engagement opportunities in the Bay Area. A great way to give back to your local community and stay connected with Saint Mary's students, staff, faculty and fellow Gaels! Find out more: http://service.stmarys-ca.edu.
Reunion Class Committees
Class reunions are great time to reflect on the impact Saint Mary's has had on your life, remember the good times you had at the college, and reconnect with old friends. Reunion celebrations are also a time when classes focus their fundraising efforts to increase support for the college. Class Reunion Committees help re-engage their classmates with each other and achieve their class' goals to increase giving in support of Saint Mary's students.
