The Office of Alumni Relations welcomes our new director, Christina Camardella. Christina comes to us most recently from  Yonkers Partners in Education, where she oversaw all development and volunteer engagement activities for the organization whose mission it is to help low-income students ensure that they are ready for, enroll in, and successfully complete college.

Krystyna Henke '84
Concentrating on Alumni

Krystyna Henke '84 has been building the alumni community in Toronto for the last year. "My favorite getting to know such unique and interesting individuals and seeing them enjoy meeting each other in the context of an inspiring event and hearing them exchange stories about their time at Sarah Lawrence and also their current lives. Even though many didn’t know each other at Sarah Lawrence and graduated in different years, a connection is there." Read Krystyna's full feature.

Halloween costume
Trick or Treat Throwback

Guess who our student worker, Sarah Almeida '21, was for Halloween? An alum! She rocked her mom’s vintage jeans, groovy sunglasses, and tie-dye. Books by Gerda Lerner, who founded the Women’s History graduate program in 1972, were the final touch, inspired by Sarah's current courses. Spending time with alumni or sporting some College merch?
