Golden Sages

The Golden Sages is an affinity group of Bryn Mawr College alumnae/i who have celebrated their 50th reunion or are graduate school alumni over the age of 72. Under the organization of a planning committee, this cohort gathers several times a year for lectures and special outings—often with Haverford Scarlet Sages and Swarthmore Garnet Sages.
