Marygrove College Alumni Association


The Marygrove College Alumni Association has served for over 90 years as a volunteer board representing Marygrove alumni. Our purpose is to foster unity and loyalty among alumni members, to support opportunities for lifelong learning, and to promote the legacy of Marygrove College. We continue to be united in our experiences and memories of Marygrove, and the friendships and opportunities that Marygrove made possible for us. We value the ongoing support of the IHM Community and Leadership team, especially since the College closing in 2019. We now look forward to a strong partnership with the Marygrove Conservancy.
