    For over five decades, graduates of our former historic campus have gathered for an annual Lewis Avenue Alumni Reunion, reminiscing about old times and catching up with great friends. 

    About Us

    St. John’s University was established in 1870 in a small farmhouse in Brooklyn. That early location evolved into the Lewis Avenue campus, located at the intersection of Lewis Avenue and Willoughby Avenues. Alumni from this cherished former location remain an integral part of St. John’s today, and the Lewis Avenue Alumni Association is their way of staying connected to each other and the University. 

    Goals

    Notre Dame College became a part of St. John’s University in 1971 and, since that time, the Notre Dame College Alumnae Association has kept the legacy of their beloved institution alive and well on the Staten Island campus. 

    About Us

    Notre Dame College became a part of St. John’s University in 1971 and, since that time, the Notre Dame College Alumnae Association has kept the legacy of their beloved institution alive and well on the Staten Island campus. Notre Dame College served the community as a premier women’s college for nearly 40 years. During the 1960s, when it became difficult for small colleges to survive, St. John’s University integrated Notre Dame College, thus establishing the Staten Island campus.

    Goals

    Graduates of Notre Dame College are proud of their degrees and, through this Alumnae Association, ensure that they keep their legacy alive at St. John’s. Through events, programs and scholarship support, NDC graduates have a wealth of ways to stay connected.

    Sister Helen Flynn Scholarship Fund

    This was established to benefit close relatives of a Notre Dame alumna or an alumnus from the University’s Staten Island campus, a graduate of an un undergraduate program on St. John’s SI campus, or a former scholarship recipient. After serving a life of ministry, scholarship and intellectual challenge of the highest degree, Sister Helen Flynn’s remarkable faith and devotion to God, Gospel and community influenced all who came to know her. The scholarship was established with the belief that those who choose to study at Staten Island campus would do so in an environment conducive to Sister Helen Flynn’s ideals of service, education and faith. Applicant must be an incoming freshman accepted into a three or four year undergraduate program at the Staten Island campus who is a close relative of (son, daughter, brother, sister, nephew, niece, grandson, granddaughter or first cousin) a Notre Dame alumna or alumnus of a four year undergraduate program from the University’s Staten Island campus. Applicants must also have been accepted to St John’s University no later than Saturday, February 15, 2014.

    The St. John’s University Jubilarian Society is an exclusive group reserved for alumni who are celebrating or have already celebrated the 50th Anniversary of their graduation. Each year the University hosts a dinner to honor these senior alumni as they commemorate this significant milestone. They’ve celebrated numerous anniversaries of their graduation, and share a deep affection for all that St. John’s has meant to them for more than half a century.

    The members of the Class of 1965 are particularly invited to take advantage of this special opportunity to reconnect with their former classmates. As St. John’s newest Jubilarians, we recommend that, if you have not already done so, you become a member of the St. John’s Alumni Online Community and update your profile with your most recent personal information. Membership ensures that you will receive mail and e-mail about this and other University events, and will allow you to make your reservations and pay online.

    As is traditional, the celebration begins with campus tours and a reception, the Alumni Anniversary Mass in St. Thomas More Church on the Queens campus, followed by cocktails, dinner and a dessert reception in the D’Angelo Center. The evening will continue until 10 p.m., making this is a great way to get together and share memories with former classmates whom you may not have seen in years.
