Alumnae

Welcome

Welcome!

Welcome, Xavier Alumnae!

I am so happy that you have stopped by to learn about the many opportunities available to our alumnae community. In this section of the website, you can find links to our social media pages, learn about upcoming alumnae events and reunions, update your personal information, and check up on your classmates in our Class Notes page. I also send out several e-mails throughout the year with information on upcoming events, recaps of alumnae events, and exciting campus news. If you are not receiving those e-mails, please be sure to click here and ensure that the e-mail address that we have for you is accurate. We don’t want you to miss anything!
 
I also ask that you consider supporting Xavier with a gift to the school. You can click here and read about all of the wonderful giving opportunities available. Our alumnae community has been incredibly generous over the years, and Xavier would not be what it is today without this support.  
 
Finally, if you have not been to campus recently, you must stop by for a tour! This year marks Xavier’s 75th anniversary - and many changes have been made to campus over those 75 years.  Please feel free to call or e-mail me anytime with questions or to set up a tour of our beautiful campus!  
 
Sincerely,
Polly Bayless Fitz-Gerald ’68

Xavier is a beautiful supportive community that is full of faith and sisterhood. I love serving my Alumnae community because I am able to continue the friendships I established so many years ago, I get to see the faces of the scholarship recipients who we help, and I always leave Xavier full of hope for future XCP graduates. My Xavier sisters are helping change our world and I am happy to be a part of that.
