Congratulations, Graduates of the Class of 2015! We've uploaded 10 videos to our Video Gallery and 555 photos to our Photo Albums, chronicling your last few days at Fontbonne. We wish you nothing but the very best as you start your new journey as alumnae. A special thank you goes out to Cassandra Burrell '17 and Samantha Fernandes '17 for recording these wonderful memories.
On Thursday, June 4th, we started a new tradition at Fontbonne - wearing caps & gowns at the Baccalaureate Mass. Students, parents, and alumnae voiced their support for the new tradition, realizing that our graduates now have the best of both worlds. Michelle Powers, an alumna of Fontbonne & reporter for NET NY TV, did a segment that you can watch by clicking on the icon.

As highlighted in a news article above, we've started a new tradition at Fontbonne with the wearing of caps and gowns at our Baccalaureate Mass. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle posted an article, highlighting both graduation & the mass - they've also highlighted our Valedictorian, Michel Fallah, and our Salutatorian, Andrea Arcadipane.

For the second straight year, a group of Fontbonne students attended YWCA's Potential to Power Girls Symposium at John Jay College. The Women's Empowerment Club attended the event, one which promotes honest conversation about gender equity. The goal of the Symposium is to develop a network of advocates to advance policy, intergenerational relationships and opportunities for the next generation of women leaders.
