"I want to volunteer for this reunion because I'm interested in seeing not only how much the campus has changed, but how much it has retained its charm."

Ann Kolshak, Nurs '79

"We taught our children that giving back is something that makes you realize that everyone is not as fortunate as you are and there are always times when a person needs a little help. I have participated in the Marquette alumni board and have been reminded how lucky I was to have values instilled in me from my homelife and Marquette education."

Mary Komorowski, Bus Ad '79

"My time at Marquette provided me a path to independence, a quality education, and a great number of lifelong friends. Any way I can give back to the institution that has given me so much is something I am happy to do."
