Immaculata College Class of 1939

An excerpt from the 1939 Gleaner:

” The graduating class of 1939 has forty-nine members, and the ‘beautiful place on the hill’ is the beloved Alma Mater of a great number of Catholic young women. It is the site of many happy memories, and the object of many grateful prayers. And no wonder. A school with such lofty ideals, such loving kindness, and such great ambitions for its students cannot help but merit the love and gratitude of those under her care. may her greatness ever be superlative, and the love of her children ever the pure, wonderful love that she has inspired.”

Immaculata College Class of 1944

Immaculata College Class of 1944

An excerpt from the 1944 Gleaner:

In every home, it seems, there is a spot dearer than all others – an indefinable something seems to cling to its very atmosphere. How true this is of The Green Room, Immaculata’s social hall. It is there we gather to exchange a word, to dance a few steps, to sing a song, or just to be an intimate part of its cozy friendliness. Just as this hall is so much a part of our college memories, so too, our motto, so prominently displayed on its wall, should be an enduring part of our lives.”
