TRW Interviews

St. Kate's students interview alumnae about "composing a life" as part of the introductory core curriculum course entitled The Reflective Woman, taken by all first-year students. Interview questions will vary, depending on the student you are paired with. Don't worry, there's nothing you need to do to prepare for the interview, just be willing to talk about your life's journey with a Katie.

Fall 2017 interview dates are September 25, 26 and 30.

Friendship Families

Become a Friendship Family to a new international student!

Would you like to support and mentor a future international Katie? The Friendship Family Program is a mutually beneficial program helping to develop relationships that often foster an appreciation of how others live and look at the world, along with helping participants learn more about their own cultures. There is no financial obligation, and both families and individuals are encouraged to participate. The Multicultural and International Programs and Services (MIPS) Office administers the Friendship Family Program and staff are available as a resource for any questions participants may have.

We are always looking for new Friendship Families! If you are interested in becoming a Friendship Family, please complete an interest questionnaire.

  • Carry out the mission, vision and goals of St. Catherine University and the Alumnae Relations Department through the work of the Council committees.
  • Bring to life the spirit of the University in ways that increase alumnae engagement
