For Alumnae

A Network of Support

As an Ellis graduate, you are part of an extraordinary network and sisterhood that lasts a lifetime. We encourage you to be an active member of the alumnae community and connect with fellow graduates across class years, careers, cities, and countries.
Whether navigating a career change, exploring higher education opportunities, or simply wanting to reconnect with former classmates, Ellis offers a variety of opportunities to meet, communicate, or interact with fellow Ellis alumnae.

Oh Ellis School, Dear Ellis

A time to show your appreciation to your alma mater, Reunion Weekend celebrates important class milestones and lifelong friendships while strengthening ties among the passionate, fierce, and kind women we are lucky enough to call alumnae.

Ellis After Fifth Ave.

While Ellis alumnae choose many paths after they leave our Fifth Avenue campus, they continue to share many common ties: a fierce commitment to their careers, a lifelong love of learning, and a desire to uplift and support fellow women. With honed intellects and broad experience, our alumnae use their power to create space for themselves and others—and now they’re widening their reach in our new webinar series, “Ellis After Fifth Ave.”
Designed to celebrate and highlight the diverse experiences and expertise of our alumnae community, “Ellis After Fifth Ave.” will have rotating alumna hosts discussing topics ranging from baking to negotiating. These masterclass sessions will offer a chance for those within the Ellis community and those outside of it to learn new skills and find common ground with each other in a welcoming, inclusive space.

At Ellis, we know it’s not just our students who are lifelong learners—it’s our community members, too. The Ellis After Fifth Ave. series is open to all adults, not just our graduates. So invite your friends, share on your social feeds, and save the date!
Calling all writers, playwrights, and sci-fi lovers! Whether you’re working on your first novel, fighting writer’s block, or simply want to start a new hobby, you’re invited to join Andrea Hairston, novelist and playwright, for a free webinar all about the power of creative writing and diverse storytelling on November 19. A 1970 graduate of The Ellis School, Andrea has published three thrilling sci-fi novels (with her fourth, Master of Poisons, out in Fall 2020) and has received numerous awards and art grants for her creative, imaginative work. 

During her session, Andrea will give attendees insight into her own writing process, speak about her experiences publishing books and plays, and share how she finds creative inspiration for her stories. If you’re interested in learning more about writing as a career, the world of publishing, or science-fiction, register today for The Science (Fiction) of Storytelling on November 19!
