Each year, the Brescia University College Alumnae Association invites local alumnae to campus to join our graduating class as we celebrate their last days as a Brescia student! For alumnae, it is a time to reconnect with campus and our students. For our soon-to-be graduates, it is a time to meet local alumnae, get sized for an alumnae ring and vote for the 2018 Grad Class Speaker. For all in attendance, it is an opportunity to hear from a captivating woman who we should all be proud to call a BOLD Brescia alumna.
