Reunion + Homecoming volunteering

A reunion celebration is only a success if your classmates come back to celebrate with you. We need a strong group of volunteers who are willing to help create a buzz leading up to Reunion + Homecoming. No matter the amount of time you are able to commit, we have an opportunity for you!

"Marquette served as a critical component in my professional and spiritual development as a young woman. I was drawn to serve others and be thankful for the gifts I had been given. I realized that these gifts were not mine to keep but rather to be shared to help others. My 40th college reunion is not only a time to reflect, but another opportunity to give back, to contribute in appreciation."

Patrick J. Cronin, Jour ’78, Grad ’87

Timothy P. Hanley, Bus Ad ’78

"My experience at Marquette was very important to me, and has provided me not only a great education, but perhaps even more importantly, many lifelong relationships. It is also a strong tie with my extended family, my father, my brothers, my wife and my two sons, who are also graduates. This is why I was happy to volunteer at this 40th reunion."

Susan S. Harnett, Sp ’78

"I re-engaged with Marquette when I returned to the U.S. after living and working abroad for 10 years. A dear friend from Marquette got me engaged. I have many friends that I met at Marquette and have many fond memories of my days there. Being on the Dean's Council for the Business School has been tremendous. Anything I can do to help, I will."

Barbara D. Newby, Nurs ’78

"I wanted to say 'thank you' by helping with the reunion."

Gary F. Seno, Bus Ad ’78, Grad ’86

Ralph A. Weber, Arts ’78

"I have benefitted for 40 years from the way Marquette’s faculty shaped my thinking on the most important life issues. I wanted to say 'thank you' by helping with the reunion."
