We give thanks for Sister Veronica Ann Baxter (1928-2014), remembered for her innovative leadership of Marylhurst from 1974 to 1984, when the university transitioned to a co-educational college of lifelong learning.
Whether to see the sights or serve others, a trip with Marylhurst offers alumni the opportunity to learn more about our world with members of the Marylhurst community. All trips are led by Marylhurst faculty or staff.
