Marquette Experience is rooted in the Jesuit ideals which shape Marquette as a university community. It provides an opportunity to reflect on one’s college and life experience in light of these ideals. This retreat includes reflections from student leaders on their experience of Ignatian spirituality and life at Marquette. Small group conversations, opportunities to pray, and explore together all lead to a warm and vibrant community on this retreat. This is a great chance to get off campus and spend some time with your fellow students!
Sophomore through senior students of all faiths are welcome.
