On March 26, 1922, Mother Mary Cecilia Romen, the Mother General of the Sisters of Notre Dame, wrote a letter to Cleveland Bishop Joseph Schrembs asking for permission to open a college for women.
Ninety years after Mother Mary Cecilia wrote that letter, over 5,500 students, both men and women, have graduated from Notre Dame College.
From Australia to California, Notre Dame College alumni come from and live around the world. They have taken their NDC diplomas to start countless careers as scientists, teachers, journalists, even spies.
To celebrate our graduates, we want to find out what a typical day in the life of our alumni looks like. So here’s what we would like you do to do:
Take a photo of yourself and e-mail it with a brief description to firstname.lastname@example.org.*
Your photo should simply capture what you are doing that day, whether you are on assignment at work, relaxing on the beach during vacation or enjoying retirement with your grandkids.
A selection of the photos will be printed in Notre Dame Today. The rest will be published on the College’s Flickr account.
So grab your camera and capture A Day in the Life of NDC Alumni!
*Preferably, your photo should be 300 dpi and at least 3,000 by 2,000 pixels.
