MIC Alumni

President of Mary Immaculate College, Prof. Eugene Wall, summed up MIC's desire to foster lasting links with alumni when he said that “individually and collectively, all of our students, both current and graduated, embody our College’s mission - ultimately to make the world a better place through our ideas, our innovations and our engagement. They have the ability to develop and shape ideas that will make a positive and lasting impact on the world”.
