Q: What is an “Affinity Group”?
Being a McBride Scholar is technically an affinity, not a class designation. The year in which you graduated will remain your class year for the College’s purposes, but in order to gather, operate and be identified as a unique BMC group, we operate under the Alumnae/i Association Affinity Groups.
