During the summer of 1809, a friendship was born in Emmitsburg, Md.
between St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and Fr. John DuBois, S.S. That bond
lives on, renewed and strengthened, decade after decade, by their
successors and by students from St. Joseph College and Mount St. Mary's
Elizabeth and her small band of sisters accepted Fr.
DuBois' hospitality and lived for six weeks in his mountain cabin while
their first home in the Valley, the Stone House, was readied. In July
2011, some 202 years later, something strikingly similar took place.
Mount St. Mary's University welcomed the St. Joseph College Alumnae
Association (SJCAA) to our campus. The SJCAA headquarters is located in
the Mount's Advancement and Alumni Relations Office, in Bradley Hall.

"There are hundreds of Mount "guys" who have married St. Joe's "gals," and some would argue this partnership has been in the works since St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and Fr. John Dubois arrived in Emmitsburg in the early 1800s. We are pleased to be working with the SJCAA and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship."

"We are not joining our merging into Mount St. Mary's Alumni Association. We are, and will continue to remain, an independent association for the Alumnae of St. Joseph College"
