Graduates of the Last Decade MU_GOLDlogo_cmyk

If you’ve earned a degree from Marian University during the last 10 years, then you’re a Graduate of the Last Decade (GOLD). From the day you graduate until your 10th reunion, you’re part of this special alumni group. Currently, all graduates from the Classes of 2009–19 are GOLD.

Whether you’re around the corner or across the world, you’re an important part of our global alumni network!

We need you to continue our rich tradition of alumni involvement and support by being actively engaged. Enjoy networking and social events, volunteer opportunities, and programs that make a difference in the lives of our students—now and in the future.

Go for the GOLD

Make a gift before December 31, 2019 and watch it DOUBLE THE IMPACT on Marian University students! An anonymous donor has generously offered to match new gifts from Marian’s graduates of the last decade (GOLD) for up to $250. Give now!

This includes rocking your Marian license plate and other gifts designated as you choose (the athletic team of your choice, student scholarships, study abroad, etc.!).

Remember: It all adds up. Your gift, no matter the size, supports students in becoming transformational leaders in the community.

Getting started

Give back and pay it forward! As GOLD, we make an impact through our time, talent, and treasure by:

  • Continuing to exemplify the mission and vision of Marian University.
  • Fostering meaningful connections to fellow alumni and current students.
  • Promoting participation in campus programs and our own.
  • Creating the next generation of Marian University alumni volunteers.
  • Cultivating young philanthropists.
