“Navigating The Job Market” Available on Youtube
Earlier this week, the Stanner Alumni Center hosted Part 2 of the Stanner Talks Series: Navigating the Job Market. We were delighted to welcome back six young alumni professionals from a variety of fields including finance, accounting, real estate, engineering, and homeland security. The focus of the event centered on younger generations navigating the job market as they look for jobs and promotions within their industries. Discussion topics ranged from how to make yourself stand out in the hiring process to discussing the importance of internships, and more. We are so grateful to all who attended as well as our panelists for such an insightful and interesting evening.
Missed the panel? Want to hear all the great advice? Don’t worry, you can view the recording of the event on Youtube (video player above). We encourage anyone who wants to network further and connect to reach out to Rebecca Wagner ’14 at firstname.lastname@example.org. As the panelists pointed out, networking never stops!
Ash Wednesday Marks Beginning of Lent
On Ash Wednesday, March 2nd, ministers visited all homerooms to distribute ashes to Stanners and faculty in celebration of the first day of Lent. Mass was live-streamed to all homerooms, while a few students and faculty participated in the Chapel. To make Lent more meaningful, Molloy has chosen to practice the theme of solidarity all through the season. The Catholic social teaching principle of solidarity is about recognizing others as our sisters and brothers and actively working for their good.
This season, our focus is to be in solidarity with our fellow Marist schools in Venezuela. We will work with Ayuda a Educar, a non-profit acting to help teachers in underprivileged schools, as well as contribute to the upkeep of those schools and provide benefits to students in need.
Additional opportunities for solidarity are a sneaker drive for people in the Dominican Republic, a breakfast run for people without housing, a baby drive for mothers in need, and daily prayer services. Molloy will also host activities and events to raise awareness of the challenges faced by the people of Venezuela, and we will pray together for the people in Ukraine. Click the blue button below for more information about all of the initiatives planned for this Lenten season.
We love like Mary; we feel another person’s struggle, and so we continue to practice our Mission.

Students Lead During Black History Month
Each year, Black History Month is a time to reflect on and lift the inspiring and impactful voices and work of historical and contemporary Black leaders. While February is now behind us, every day can be used to educate ourselves about Black History. Seniors Ava Aimable ’22, Autumn Hill ’22, and Loyca Jean ’22, members of our Afro-Caribbean Club as well as our Student Diversity & Inclusion Committee, are leaders at Molloy. Together they planned and implemented many initiatives to create a special celebration for our school throughout February!
Kicking off the month, Ava, Autumn, and Loyca edited and narrated a Black History Month introductory video that was played during the morning homeroom broadcast (this video is on Molloy’s Instagram feed). Each week of February, the Afro-Caribbean Club presented Black History Month trivia during homeroom and on Instagram, and they also created a series of biographical videos highlighting inspiring Black leaders. The Afro-Caribbean Club decorated Molloy’s first-floor hallway with signage and photos of prominent Black leaders, and the club also sponsored a screening of the film Hidden Figures in our theater on February 17th.
On February 28th, upon our return from Winter Break, Molloy held a dress down day in support of a fundraiser for Marist Missions in Haiti. Also on February 28th, Afro-Caribbean Club sponsored a homeroom parade, which saw club members and friends flying the flags of many nations throughout the halls of Molloy!
Special thanks to Ava, Autumn, Loyca, the Afro-Caribbean Club, moderator Mr. Edwidge Turenne ‘98, and the Student Diversity & Inclusion Committee for their hard work!
Students Virtually Visit MIT’s Quantum Lab
by Gisele Habibulla ‘25
“Super Bowl Sunday” wasn’t the only thing Quantum Computing students had to look forward to on February 13th. Qubit by Qubit organized a virtual tour of MIT’s labs for all the aspiring computer scientists in the program. Just before our weekly lecture, everyone had the opportunity to take part in this interactive visit led by Ph.D. research fellow, Sarah Muschinske. Here, students received insight on what a day at MIT looked like for a quantum computing researcher, as well as how some of the laboratory equipment worked and how the scientists used them. For instance, the downstairs lab contains all the physical computers, stabilizing, and cooling systems, and links to the lab upstairs which converts all the data into standard computers. This allows the researchers to work with the collected information in a more office-like setting….

“Lolligram” Sales Raise Money for Homeless Women
In February, in celebration of Valentine’s Day, students supported two fundraisers benefiting homeless elderly women in Queens. The first fundraiser was a dress down day, which encouraged students to make a donation to earn the dress down day. The second fundraiser took the form of lolligram sales. Students raised money by purchasing and gifting lolligrams, lollipops accompanied by special messages. Through these fundraisers, Molloy students raised over $4,000 for Thomas Berry Place, which serves elderly homeless women by providing housing at the Bishop Molloy Retreat House in Jamaica, Queens.

Investment Club’s Recent Success
The Beehive would like to give a shout out to Molloy’s Investment Club! Back on February 15th, our Stanners were on a roll, outshining hundreds of teams in the region. At the time, Team B was ranked 13th of 761, and our coordinator ranking (or the average of both Team A and Team B) was 22nd of 1,333! With about a 6% decrease in the S&P since the start of the competition in early February, Stanners managed to still be in the black. Pictured: Senior Joe McGowan ‘22 representing the Investment Club.

Last weekend, this group of Stanners found themselves celebrating the 30th (+2) Anniversary of “dSb” die Schlauberger – a German Alpine Rock band – at Villa Roma Resort in Callicoon, NY. Three of the band’s members are Molloy alums: Rob Rom ‘86, Klaus Staab ’84 and Tom Staab ’87. Together with about 10 other bands, it was a fun, fully packed weekend celebrating German & Austrian culture. A mixture of family and friends, this group finds themselves together multiple times a year – but finally remembered to grab a group picture! They are looking forward to the next “fest” and to hopefully seeing more Stanners there.
