Join us for Founders' Week 2024

Katie DuBoff - April 14, 2024

Founder's Week header

Founders' Week Begins April 15!

This special week is a long-standing Rosemont tradition when we remember the Sisters of the Holy Child who opened our College and all the students, faculty, staff and administrators who followed them and contributed their talents to making the Rosemont we have today. So we honor our past founders and celebrate the Rosemont College community of today-all of us.
