Comments: What a wonderful site this is and like many of you I also stumbled through time (so to speak). I would love to hear from all of my alma cohorts. Just a little bit of news - I too am married, no children, however... although I was married in London, Ontario in a picturesque backyard by none other than Scotty herself. I won't tell you what sermon anecdote she plugged although it certainly brought back good memories. Take care.

Comments: I was just recently in St.Thomas with my 2nd oldest daughter and showed her Alma College. I was dumb founded by the wreck Alma is in. I call this school my home when I talk to my kids about it. What will it take to preserve the building?Dosen't anyone care about the building! Sure we have a lot of fond memories, but wouldn't it be nice to have reunions at the actual school like some of the other schools do? I would like to see a lot of these alma students collect again and stand for Alma just like we did for the school when the teachers went on strike. Where has all the spirit gone. I am diappointed with St.Thjomas and how they treat their buildings that hold a lot of their history!

Comments: I do remember so many times at Alma good and bad … the events, the proms, the get-togethers, side store .. the St. Thomas 'left overs' ... not to mention our beloved resident ghost Angela, the friends and the once in a lifetime experences. I am re-connecting with all those I can from Alma … it was a such a special time for all of us. Now I look at the photos and it hurts my heart. If you remember me drop me an email, loved to hear from you!

Comments: A message from Mrs. Masur Leitch, Hello again Alma Girls and friends of Alma College,WE need your help again. The October rains have started here and soon there will be the winter snows. St. Thomas City Council was brave enough to stop the demolition of the College in August but not much was done to take the next steps of protecting the College from the upcoming winter. WE NEED YOU to blitz them again. Email to the Mayor: and a copy to Steve Peters: When you sign off, tell them -student, staff etc , and where you are from.THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION. THE SPIRIT OF ALMA NEEDS YOU.........

Comments: i resently watched Silent Hill, a scary movie. when after i learned that some seens from it were filmed in the vary building i see almost everyday. after reading this guestbook i relise how globally big and important to the stupents that went there. after reading thats girls from south america. I never really understood that. i thought it was just a local college. My Great Grandma went to Alma her name was Elsie Laurine Corkill Wilkinson . i dont really know anything else about her years at alma like her friends, her roomies or what years she was there. But if anyone on here knew her id love to hear from yu. P.S.- i was just wondering if there was any murders or deaths in the school?

Comments: I would love to hear from anyone who would remember me. I was only at Alma for a half year in Grade Nine. I have my yearbook somewhere and I should dig it out for some names. It's so sad that that beautiful building is in such terrible shape. I was sent to Alma because I was such a "wild child". Can't say Alma tamed me too much, but I was too young to appreciate much. Had tons of fun though!

Comments: just found this web site thanks to Jane Ann MacDonald who had signed onto the website Classmates.conm. Would love to go to the reunion this year, I have never been. The last time I was at Alma was in 1968 when we were married in the chapel. It will be a real shame when the school is not there anymore. Would anyone happen to know where Miss. Landimore is (not sure of the spelling) she was the french teacher in 65-66. Would be glad to hear from any of the gals I went to school with 65-67
