"Before Albertus Magnus College was, we were. ... Although as a student group we were at first nameless, in our hearts there was spirit, forward looking thoughts, and the courage of pioneers."
First freshmen class, 1925
On Founders' Day the Albertus Magnus College community remembered the inaugural day of the college, September 24, 1925. We came together to rejoice in our living heritage as a Dominican and Catholic College, celebrated our present, and looked forward to a future full of promise. We welcomed our newest students at the Candlelight Ceremony and celebrated the 30th anniversary of Dr. Julia McNamara as President of Albertus Magnus College.
