Alums have been entrepreneurial community builders since the Alumnae/i Association (AAVC) was founded in 1871.

Most everyone is familiar with Classes, which focus on building and maintaining community between classmates and peers. Vassar Clubs focus on building communities where people live and work, while Multicultural and Affinity Groups focus on strengthening ties among alums who share identities or undergraduate activities, such as athletic teams and singing groups.

Vassar Classes

Everyone who matriculates at Vassar is a member of a Vassar Class. Classes plan reunions and mini-reunions, manage social media pages, reach out to one another about supporting the College, and enjoy each other’s updates in the Class Notes section of the Vassar Quarterly magazine. Classes last for a lifetime and represent the largest organizing alums community.

If you are interested in participating in Class activities, reach out to Diana Jedlicka at or (845) 437-5398.
