Sister Tess Wysolmerski, CSJ, Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences gave birth to this new idea to reconnect science alumni professionals who are Doctors of Medicine, Doctors of Philosophy, in specialized areas and Doctors of Veterinary Medicine and Dentistry. The purpose of the Guild is to act as an association of professionals formed to reconnect with college friends, former staff and faculty and to learn about the new advances in the sciences at The College of Saint Rose. Members will network so as to advance and exchange ideas among themselves and to communicate and foster friendly relationships with undergraduate and graduate students of The College of Saint Rose.
