Alumni Mothers' Club

After their sons graduate from U of D Jesuit alumni mothers can’t imagine walking away from all the amazing women they’ve called friends for years; nor do they want to stop their support for such a great school. And so, the U of D Jesuit Alumni Mothers’ Club (AMC) was established over 27 years ago. Every year since, the Alumni Mothers’ Club welcomes moms from the most recent graduating class. The AMC includes moms whose sons graduated decades ago, and some whose sons just recently left U of D Jesuit. They are a diverse, supportive, and a welcoming community.

The Alumni Mothers’ Club mission is to be a service and social organization. They sponsor activities to bring U of D Jesuit alumni mothers together to maintain a strong community as they continue building camaraderie, fellowship, friendships, and connections. Of course, the Alumni Mothers' Club always strives to enhance the alumni support and connection to our school.

The best way to stay connected to the U of D Jesuit community is to become a member of the Alumni Mothers’ Club and participate in a variety of activities throughout the year. As a member you’ll receive a monthly email providing you with upcoming event details, and you’ll receive the annual Membership Directory.
