We chose “Invest. Inspire.” as our latest campaign theme because there is something incredibly powerful about two things happening in the same moment. Two things that inform each other, enrich each other and encourage even bigger actions than each thing could ever do alone.
This unique dynamic defines us as the small school with the huge impact, where even modest gifts can revolutionize an academic career.
In September, alumni from the Class of 1966 returned to campus to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Old friends and classmates re-discovered alma mater and reconnected at events over the weekend. Events from the weekend included campus tours, State of the University Luncheon, a dinner dance, an alumni Mass and a Golden Peacock Society Brunch.
During the weekend, committee chair, William D. Costigan, Esq. ’66, presented the reunion class gift of $211,357 to the University. These gifts go a long way. Help is critical to the University’s efforts to give students a quality, Jesuit education, and continue to make improvements to campus such as the Mac Mahon Student Center and the redesigned Center for Career Engagement and Experiential Learning (CEEL).
