Do you remember?  Of course you do…


Typing class with Mr. Flavel.  Going up to the 5th Floor.  Decorating Homecoming floats.  Your Prom date. 

Your first date.  The best Spring Musicals EVER.  Regional champion basketball teams.  Milkshakes in the cafeteria.

Mass in the chapel.  Dissecting a frog.  The haunting nun.  The Crazy Cru.  Giving your first speech.  

Dress code violations.  Marquette vs. Ottawa.  Interim trips.  Your senior retreat.  Your big brother or sister. 

Friday night football.  Bus rides.  Morning prayer.  Skipping class.  Pickleball tournaments.  Making lifelong friends.

Many of these memories and more were made during your years at Marquette.  It is hoped that they were all good ones for you.  Students today and in the future are making memories, because at Marquette, “traditions are embraced”. It is important that these traditions and excellence in Catholic education be kept alive. 

Only with the continuing support of all of our alumni, benefactors and friends including you, is this mission possible.

Please consider making a contribution this year to our Annual Gift Fund.  In exchange for your generous donation, we promise to do all we can to continue to provide a great value-based education to the students who are the future of our world. 

The funds will be used to:

  • Maintain a clean, healthy, safe environment at our campuses
  • Keep up with current technology trends and updates for our faculty and students
  • Provide financial aid to families in need
  • Supplement the general fund where the need is the greatest

Your assistance and generosity is very much valued and appreciated.  Thank you!
