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!

“After high school, along came the Korean War, and I spent four years in the Air Force. My reward for that service was the GI Bill, and I began my long journey through MU’s classrooms in 1954, first in night classes, eventually entering day classes and finally graduating in Arts and Sciences in 1968. Marquette was ingrained in my life by that time, and it will forever be my inspiration to strive for a life well lived. I volunteer because these activities continually reconnect me with Marquette and rejuvenate my life of service to this great institution."

"Marquette opened up my life, spiritually, intellectually and socially. It was for that reason that I volunteered for the university after college and was involved in the alumni clubs in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Cleveland. I became involved in MUAA on a national level as well, eventually becoming president of the Alumni Association board. I love my alma mater" - Patricia

"So why did we volunteer for our 50th reunion? Because we believe in Marquette and the Jesuits. We want to show how grateful we are for the terrific foundation for life we obtained at Marquette. We are so thankful that we met each other at Marquette and were married over 50 years ago and are still able to help and be of service to others!" - David

Gail M. Pearce, PT ’68

"My education at Marquette gave me an excellent foundation for my career as a physical therapist, in which I have been privileged to work with vetarans. I decided to volunteer for our 50th reunion in hopes that I could encourage more of my classmates to attend [than did our 45th reunion]. I was taught at a young age that if you have a complaint about something, then you should offer to make things better.”
