Your graduate-level instruction on being a College of Saint Benedict alumna

You may not be a CSB student any more, but you’ll always be a Bennie. And there’s lots for you to learn about staying engaged, keeping connected and getting the most from the power of the CSB alumnae network. You’ve come to the right place. Here are a few freebies (who doesn’t love that?) and small reminders of your CSB home. We look forward to seeing you back on campus soon!

Letters From Home

We miss you at CSB, and we think of you often and imagine all the things you're doing to let your light shine. Please enjoy this "letter" from your CSB home.

Dear Bennies, 

We have watched with prayerful concern over the last few weeks as the COVID-19 pandemic has hit us all. Many of us are having to drastically change the way we work and socialize to prevent the spread of this virus.

As our youngest alumnae, coming up on the anniversary of your graduation from Saint Ben's, your lives have likely been on a roller coaster ride of transition since last May. We want to remind you again of the stability of Saint Ben's and our love for you and pride in you. We are with you in spirit (and on Zoom) until we can be together again face to face.

In the meantime, let us share this bit of inspiration from the Sisters from the Order of Saint Benedict that our president, Mary Dana Hinton, captured last year. We share the Sisters’ sentiment:

May God bless you and keep you. May God’s loving face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May God look upon you kindly and give you peace.

Sending you love and light from Saint Ben’s,

Valerie Jones ’94, Executive Director, Alumnae Relations Anne Sumangil ’99, Director, Alumnae Relations Amy Anderson, Assistant Director, Alumnae Relations Lisa Miller, Associate, Alumnae Relations
