Please settle in and make yourself comfortable. This is your new home for all news, events, groups, conversation, and networking for Barnard Alumnae. We hope you like it. But before you tour the website, let us tell you some of the things you can expect to find here.
My Profile, which is a link you will find under your name once you log in, is where you can edit your alumnae profile, view your list of friends, upload photos, view your groups, create a blog, and add class notes. Here you can choose how much or how little information about yourself you want to make public for other alumnae to see. No one except Barnard alumnae and staff will see this information.
