MU CONNECTIONS - The Official Marquette University Alumni e-Newsletter
 October 2005 


On October 11, 2005, MU Connect will celebrate its first birthday. To date, almost 20,000 of you have registered and are taking advantage of all the great features of our online alumni community. In the year ahead, the Marquette University Alumni Association is planning a new design, improved features and more opportunities to stay connected with your fellow alumni and your alma mater.


Show your Marquette pride with an "MU" magnet!

Marquette would like to reward you for supporting our students with a cool MU monogram magnet - perfect for the car, fridge or file cabinet. It's your gift with any online contribution made by October 31st in support of the Blue & Gold Athletic Scholarship Fund, the Marquette Fund, or the Scholars Fund. Gifts to these funds are making a tremendous impact on students' lives. Last year individual gifts of $250 or less provided enough funds for approximately 40 full-time scholarships!

Make a gift to get your FREE magnet!
