Stay Connected to The Elms

Our Lady of the Elms alumnae are a diverse group of leaders in all areas of life.  Elms graduates represent a fabulous group of women seeking academic success, diverse careers, community leadership, and social justice.

As an Elms graduate, you belong to a unique sisterhood.  The Alumnae office welcomes you home and looks forward to working with you to continue your Elms Legacy, connect you with the school and current students, and help you reconnect with other Elms grads.

What can you do to stay connected to your school?  Lots!

Share your email address with the Alumnae Office
 You will receive monthly e-newsletters with updates on your fellow Elms Alumnae, obituary notices for your class, and news about the Sisters.  Send us your email address.

Introduce Yourself as an Elms Alum
With all of the success and poise of The Elm's alumnae community, you are our best advertisement.  You never know when you will meet someone looking for a new school for their children or grandchildren.  Show your pride and shout your Elms story from the rooftops!

Submit Class Notes
We are always collecting interesting facts about our alums.  We use these stories for the Vision magazine and the monthly e-newsletters.  So, let us know what you are doing.  Email your news.

Become a Class Representative
As a small school, we have the privilege of hearing from many of you often, but we aren't in close touch with everyone.  That's where the Class Representatives come in, by serving as liaisons between their classes and the school and keeping the Elms informed about the wonderful things happening in our alumnae community.  For more information, contact Olivia Wakeling.

Help plan your reunion
Class Planners are responsible for their class events during Reunion Weekend.  The Alumnae Office is always accepting volunteer names, so even if your anniversary is a couple of years away, to be put on the list contact Olivia Wakeling.

Send a card to the Sisters
Alums are always welcome to connect with favorite Elms Sisters.  They remember you fondly and love to receive updates on where you volunteer, work, live, or what you miss about the Elms.  Send them a note, family photos, or a birthday card to:  Dominican Sisters of Peace, 1230 W. Market Street, Akron, OH  44313

Wear Elms-branded clothing items
The Elms Spirit Shop carries fun clothing and other Elms products.  Call the Spirit Shop at 330.867.0148 with questions and to inquire about shipping.

Make your gift to the Alumnae Association Scholarship Fund
Please donate to the Alumnae Association Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded to the top four incoming freshman and are renewable for all four years.  The Our Lady of the Elms Alumnae Association Scholarship Fund has generated more than $450,000 over the years and helped many girls benefit from an Elms education.  We need your help in order to continue the tradition.
