Celebrate With Us!

Iona College is celebrating 50 Years of Women at Iona and we invite you to join us! Share a story from your time at Iona, attend an event on campus or read about how different Gael alumnae are making their mark on the world.

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. See full calendar of event listings here.

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

Read how Iona alumnae have brought the values of service and mission to their careers, communities, and beyond.
