Kick off our 100 Hours of Service project
Part of our founding mission is serving the dear neighbor and meeting the concerns of the times. In honor of 100 years, starting in September, the Centennial Committee is launching a 100 Hours of Service project for the entire Saint Rose community.
How to participate
- Log 100 hours of service in honor of Saint Rose’s 100 years. That translates to less than three hours a week.
- Whether you volunteer time on a nonprofit board, knit hats for preemies in the NICU, or embark on a service trip – it all counts!
- Completed projects will be recognized during Reunion 2021 at the culminating Centennial Celebration on June 12, 2021.
NYS and Albany mark Saint Rose centennial with proclamations, citations, resolutions
The College of Saint Rose has been such an instrumental part of the community for 100 years, and our community is not letting our centennial go by without its good wishes.
Recently, the College received proclamations, resolutions, or citations from New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York State Sen. Betty Little, who is also a member of the Saint Rose Class of 1962, and Sen. Neil Breslin, the Mayor of the City of Albany, and the Albany Common Council.
100 Years, 100 Faces of Saint Rose
The College of Saint Rose will tell the story of its 100 years through the people who have made the College special.
We will be featuring 100 stories in 2020 and are asking you to share whom you think should be featured. We’re looking for individuals who made significant contributions to Saint Rose or left Saint Rose to do big things in the world. We’re also looking for “faces” who illustrate an important time in Saint Rose history.
For example, we’ll be featuring someone who represents when Saint Rose opened its doors to men so G.I.s returning home from World War II could take night courses. And, we’ll be highlighting some of the early members of Spectrum, a Saint Rose student group that celebrates racial, ethnic, and other forms of diversity, to highlight the changing demographics at Saint Rose.
We have our own list, and we’ll be sharing those stories with you soon. But we’re counting on you to round out the featured 100 with your nominations.
Share your suggestions using the following form. We also ask that you provide your name and email address so we can contact you with follow-up questions.
We’ll select from the nominations and include those faces among the 100.
