Thanks to the support and encouragement I received at Alverno, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and pursue an advanced art class. Then, in sophomore year, I decided to become a part of the Hair and Makeup crew for the plays and musicals. Thanks to Alverno, I was able to discover my creative side.

Congratulation to our new ASU President & Vice President, Afton Okwu and Emma Alvarez. It was a creative and empowering election. With so many qualified and passionate candidates it proved to be a very close race that required a run-off! We thank all the candidates who had the courage to run “virtually.” We cannot wait until next year to begin! #alvernoASU #alvernoelection

Mary's Day court is made up of five seniors who exemplify Mary and have been active members of our community. The Mary's Day Court is selected by the Faculty and Staff. Often times these students are those involved in many activities and in their own communities, going above and beyond their required service hours. These students exemplify what it means to be an Alverno girl. They are giving, kind, spiritual and spread positivity. These selfless students put others first and they have done so much for Alverno and their classmates. We are so grateful to have the chance to acknowledge them today. This honor typically comes with the crowning of our Mary statue on the terrace and recognition at our annual mass. This year the crowning will take place on Mary's Day and the ceremony will be shared virtually. Please join us on Facebook Live Friday, May 22 at 5pm to support our Mary's Day Court and witness the beautiful, traditional crowning of Mary. #Marysdaycourt #alvernomarysdaycourt #honoringmary
