Plan your own Marquette alumni event
Each year the Alumni Engagement & Outreach office receives numerous requests from alumni across the country for events in their area. We greatly appreciate the enthusiasm of our alumni and always want to encourage those connected to Marquette to get together.
In an effort to meet the needs of Marquette alumni, we have created the Event in a Box program, which works as follows:
1. Twelve weeks in advance, the alumnus/a requesting the event submits an Event in a Box Application Form;
2. The Alumni Engagement office then reviews the request and, if the event is approved, works with the alumnus/a to promote the event;
3. In turn, the alumnus/a organizes the event and takes reservations;
4. Two weeks prior to the event, the Alumni Engagement office will send the alumnus/a an "Event in a Box," complete with everything he or she needs for a successful gathering.
