Class Notes

If you've ever read an issue of The Hill magazine, you know our Class Notes section is uniquely McDaniel. Personal, friendly, and truly connected—as you would expect our community to be. Class Notes keep you connected to your classmates long after you leave the Hill, ensuring that, as our Alma Mater says, "College ties can ne'er be broken."

The Hill's online Class Notes form makes it easy for you to share your news and keep in touch with your classmates and WMC/McDaniel. Click here to fill out your class notes, or reach out to your Class Reporter below!

Class Notes Policies

Class Notes must come firsthand from the graduates who have news, a birth, marriage or union to report. We welcome news that is no more than three years old. Notes are edited to fit available space.

Photo Acceptance Policy

You may email your Class Notes photos to your Class Reporter. Photos can also be emailed to or mailed to Alumni Relations, McDaniel College 2 College Hill, Westminster, MD 21157.

Photos, especially those of marriages, unions and births, must include the alumna and/or alumnus in the image; individual images of alumni children will not be published. We reserve the right to determine the quality of your images. Poor quality images will not be used. Photographs will not be returned, so please send duplicates. Please be sure to include a note identifying alumni in each photo.
