Affinity Gatherings

What are Affinities?

Affinities are groups formed around a common interest or experience such as faith, ethnicity, academic major or activities. Including affinity groups as part of Alumnae Relations programming allows St. Kate's to honor and celebrate all the connections that Katies make while attending St. Catherine University, not just the bonds formed with members of their graduating class.
