Greetings!

As we near the halfway mark of this academic year, we look back over 2016 with pride in our past and confidence in our future.

We congratulate and honor our founders, the Sisters of the Holy Cross, who celebrated two anniversaries this year: the 175th anniversary of the founding of their order and the 130th anniversary of their having arrived in Columbus in 1886 to administer the then new hospital, Mount Carmel West.

If you have an mccn.edu email, you’ve received information on the new 2-step Verification process. If you wish to continue using this email – which we hope you will – you will need to complete the required 2-step Verification process before December 1 (see instructions below). If you choose to use a different email address instead – please send it to alumnioffice@mccn.edu so you won’t miss out on upcoming news!
