The Women's Guild of Duquesne University was founded in 1928 with the blessing of
the University Chancellor, Bishop Boyle, to work with the Dean of Women in sponsoring
activities. In the 1940's, the group joined with other alumni groups to help promote
the Student Loan Fund. Their efforts led to an annual Pink Geranium Card Party. Proceeds
went to the development of the University. The group also began honoring the mothers
of the freshman students each Fall by hosting a tea.
These traditions continue today as women from all walks of life and associations with
Duquesne University join together and continue to sponsor activities that benefit
Duquesne University and our students. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
