This year, Saint Mary's University celebrates 50 years of co-education. While SMU's current student population is comprised of nearly 50% women, it wasn't until 1968 that the school was officially co-ed. Hear from alumnae from the late '60s who experienced the change first-hand as some of the first 50 female full-time students. We'll also hear from alumnae from throughout the following decades to discuss how the experience changed over the years. 

This panel is moderated by Bridget Brownlow MA'12 and features Ann MacGillivary BComm'71 MBA'95, Mary Ann Hotchkiss BSc'72, and Kim Squires BA'81 BEd'82 MBA'88. 

Breakfast is included!

Cost: $10
