Marquette Magazine Now Online

The spring issue of Marquette Magazine is in the mail, but you don’t have to wait for the postal carrier to bring a copy to your door. Now the magazine is available online with new options that allow you to submit story ideas for future issues and updates for the “Class Notes” section.

The Spring 2006 issue also offers thought-provoking stories about ROTC alumni who bring their faith to work, a paradigm-changing academic program in commercial real estate, and an article straight from President Robert Wild, S.J., to you about how Marquette is fulfilling its role as a Catholic university.

The 2006 Alumni National Awards

Each spring, Marquette University sets aside one special weekend to honor distinguished alumni from every college and school who represent the heart, soul and spirit of Marquette.

Hundreds of alumni and guests come to campus for a series of celebrations regaling our Alumni National Award recipients — a chance to hear their stories and how they are making a difference in the lives of others.
