Kick-Off Celebration

Join us on Saturday, September 21, 2019 for the official Kick-Off Celebration honoring 50 Years of Women at Iona College.

Event Info

In the fall of 1969, Iona College began welcoming female students into the full-time student body. That historic moment triggered a sweeping change at the traditionally male institution. To commemorate 50 years of women at Iona College, the College will embark on a celebration beginning in September 2019 and culminating in May 2020.

This campus-wide celebration will include lectures, exhibitions and special events hosted by the LaPenta School of Business, the School of Arts & Science and various campus organizations. Programs will highlight women and their contributions to the College and the larger society.

A calendar with event listings is currently being developed. We hope that alumnae will use some of these campus events to organize mini-reunions with friends throughout the year.

We invite everyone to participate by attending special events, visiting the Share A Story page, and providing photos to
