Why Marquette

I guess you could say I've grown up at Marquette. All of my adult life has been spent here, first as a student and now as an educator/administrator. I know first-hand the quality of the educational experience offered here. The seriousness of the students and the commitment of the faculty and administration keeps me contributing all that I can.
