This program welcomes the freshman class into the tradition of Marquette men's basketball and helps our new students learn what it means to be a true Fanatic. From "Ring Out Ahoya" and "Hail Alma Mater" to Marquette cheers and the "Jump Around guy," be a part of this early lesson in Marquette Nation pride.

Last year, nearly 27,087 donors helped Marquette students obtain their dreams. On Love A Donor Day, we encourage students to take the time to stop by Westowne Square and show their appreciation for our Marquette donors by writing them a thank you card.
