1971 time capsule found

Discovered: a 1971 time capsule in an O’Connor residence hall lounge wall! The student newspaper called Nazareth a “dynamic institution” and award-winning actress Dame Judith Anderson was starring as Hamlet in a national tour, onstage at the Nazareth College Arts Center.

Connections magazine now available

In this issue, you will get to know Caroline Tolbert, the new director of alumni and constituent engagement, read essays by President Beth Paul and Assistant Professor Wendy Norris, and learn how an anti-racism class spurred Andrew Wicklum ‘24 to action.

Nazareth partners with PeerForward 

Nazareth is partnering with PeerForward — a national nonprofit that uses a peer-to-peer model to guide students in under-resourced schools to pursue college degrees — to provide transformative training at Naz. Several hundred high school students from more than 70 schools across the country will be on campus this summer for workshops that will allow these young leaders to inspire and assist their friends, as well as themselves, to pursue higher education.
