Alumnae Association


The Buffalo Seminary Alumnae Association (BSAA) serves as the school "memory" by preserving and promoting the heritage and traditions of the school. It also supports the mission, goals, and objectives of SEM by:

  • Serving as a communication link between the alumnae and the school
  • Encouraging support and involvement by alumnae in the association and the school
  • Providing opportunities and activities for alumnae to meet and remain in contact with one another

Membership in the association consists of all graduates of the school as well as those who attended for at least one year and withdrew in good academic standing. Membership is automatic and does not require formal application or dues.

Let the BSAA be your bridge to old friends, new contacts and opportunities at Buffalo Seminary today.

The Buffalo Seminary Alumnae Association is committed to expanding communications with fellow alums. We hope you will share with us where life has taken you, what your accomplishments and successes have been and how Buffalo Seminary can reconnect with you.
