Welcome Alumni

We take great pride in our alumni and hope that you take that same pride in your alma mater. This is your link to friends, memories, services, events and opportunities — past, present and future.

Mount Carmel alumni are vital members of the Mount Carmel College of Nursing family. The College Alumni Relations Office collaborates closely with individual alumni and the Mount Carmel Alumni Association (MCAA) to provide opportunities for interaction between students and alumni while fostering a lifelong connection to MCCN. Our more than 6,500 alumni around the world make a difference every day, reflecting our core values of academic excellence, respect, compassion and social responsibility. We invite you to participate in our alumni events and student/alumni activities to:

  • Foster and strengthen lifelong relationships between alumni and students and fellow alumni
  • Support and promote the future of nursing at Mount Carmel College of Nursing

Your involvement and assistance is always needed and welcome. The Alumni Relations Office, in conjunction with the MCAA, is seeking alumni volunteers for the following activities:

Class representatives serve as liaisons between the College Alumni Relations Office and their classmates to help us keep in touch with our alumni. Would you be interested in maintaining your classmates’ names, addresses and emails, and encouraging them to send information to Alumni Relations for the Classnotes section of the Lamp? As a Representative, you would be the “go-to person” for your class information and be the glue that keeps them together through the years. The Alumni Relations Office will provide contact information and suggestions for contacting your classmates. We currently need class representatives for the following years: 1960, 1967, 1968, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1976 through 1981, 1983, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1990 through 1996, 1998, 2000 through 2013 and 2015.

This is a project of the Alumni Relations Office in collaboration with Admissions. Alumni are needed to write letters to students who have been accepted to MCCN. Self-scripted, your short, handwritten letter will express your own heartfelt reasons for choosing Mount Carmel, as well as welcome students to the Mount Carmel family. This is a great project for those who live miles away but want to volunteer time and share their memories.

This program offers our alumni the opportunity to work with students as facilitators at various community partner service learning sites. Activities will vary with location. The time commitment for alumni may be approximately three to five hours per month. The times and days vary, and we will provide this ongoing program to students in September, October, November, January, February March and April. Orientation to the program and sites is provided.

Be a part of the alumni team that welcomes new students as they arrive for orientation. Numerous alumni are needed to assist with two shifts offered 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.. This year’s orientation will be Monday, August 8, 2016. Remember your first day?

Alumni assist admissions with recruiting events across Ohio. Who better than alumni to share information on the excellent foundation and educational growth opportunities that Mount Carmel offers to those seeking a nursing career or who want to further their career in nursing? Orientation is provided by Admissions staff. Volunteers are needed from the end of summer to early fall each year.

Alumni guest lecturers are invited to provide guest lectures at student “lunch and learns” or other student and/or alumni events.

Several alumni are needed to assist with the planning and implementing of the Alumni Association Annual Meeting and Homecoming celebration, which is scheduled for Saturday, October 21, 2017.

Honor classes are those with graduation years ending in a 2 or 7. The class celebrating its 50th anniversary is the class of 1967. We are in need of one or two alumni from this class to be class representatives and help us locate your missing classmates.

Please contact the Alumni Relations office (alumnioffice@mccn.edu or 614.234.5681) if you are interested in serving on the Committee or are a member of the class of 1967 and would like to assist in contacting classmates.

The Mount Carmel Alumni Association awards scholarships to MCCN students through the Alumni Association Scholarship Endowment Fund to help defray the cost of education. Alumni are needed to serve on the scholarship committee to assist in the creation of the essay question and to review scholarship essays. This committee is chaired by MCAA Board member Sandy Gehres Parker ‘97. Participation may be by phone and email so alumni may participate wherever they reside. Service on this committee takes a few hours spread out from January to May.

The Mount Carmel Alumni Association offers a continental breakfast to all students on the Monday and Tuesday of finals week from 8 to 11 a.m. These events occur in May and December. This is a great opportunity to visit with the students. As alumni we remember the stress of finals week!
