Academy of Notre Dame de Namur: Inspiring Young Women Since 1956


Dear Notre Dame Alumnae,

Greetings from the Academy! We are delighted to welcome you home and invite you to explore the many inspiring events and opportunities happening within the Alumnae community.

With nearly 4,000 living Alumnae spanning the globe, the Academy of Notre Dame is incredibly proud of the success and many contributions of our graduates.

As the Director of Alumnae Relations, I am honored to meet and connect with so many Alumnae of different generations. "How was your Notre Dame experience?" That is the question I have asked Alumnae and students alike. There is a common theme among the responses - a huge smile, genuine happiness, and an appreciation for the educational experience so deep that it is often difficult to put into words. The way in which Notre Dame fosters a sense of camaraderie and everlasting bonds, coupled with its innovation and inspiration is what truly sets the Academy apart from the rest.

It is my privilege to serve the Alumnae community by fostering lifelong connections to the Academy and strengthening your passion to come back, walk through these gates once again, and relive those precious memories. 

In January of 2019, we introduced our new Mind, Body, and Spirit Initiative. The primary goal is to be intentional about the programming we offer so that it is meaningful and brings value to our Alumnae, while also supporting the Academy's Mission and Hallmarks. 

We look forward to connecting with you and hope to see you at any one of the exciting upcoming events. Whether it is a desire to reconnect with your classmates or an eagerness to make an impact on the community, the opportunities await.

Warm regards, 

Lauren Thomer
Director of Alumnae Relations
