This upcoming academic year will serve as a back drop for the celebration of 50 years of women's varsity athletics at Springfield College. Throughout the first and second semester, a series of programs and activities will be woven into the fabric of co- curricular life.
We look forward to honoring and and thanking those women whose wisdom, time, dedication and persistence made an impact on girls and women in sport on an international stage.
Please keep an eye out for updates on events on the Springfield College Athletics and Alumni websites, as well as on Facebook and both mail and email correspondences.
