June 2018
Summer Is Here!
With a successful Baccalaureate and Commencement 2018 behind us, the residence halls are empty and the campus is quiet. But for many of us here there is still much to be done. Over the next few months, we will host a number of alumni events, begin renovations to the Bishop Flanagan Campus Center, welcome a new group of students during summer orientation and the Esther's Dream Program, and host a series of summer camps. We look forward to keeping you up-to-date on AMC happenings on and off campus, and gearing up to begin the 2018 19 academic year.

Princesses & Superheroes at AMC
The 2017-18 Student Organization of the Year was awarded to the newly created Campus Princess Program . This group brings our talented students, dressed as superheroes and princesses, into hospitals and support centers to brighten the days of critically ill and disabled children.
Alyssa Banks '22 , a first year student at AMC, started the Campus Princess Program on campus in the fall because she wanted to make a difference in the lives of children battling serious illnesses. The program quickly grew to comprise 20 students and is advised by alumna Brooke (Denver) Brigham '13, '14. This year our students made several visits, among them Boston Children's Hospital, Why Me and Sherry's House.
