September 2011 – November 2012
Welcome to the Madonna University 75th Anniversary website. Please visit the site often for news, special events, photos, or to share a memory. We hope you’ll participate in as many anniversary events as possible.
When Presentation Blessed Virgin Mary Junior College, a liberal arts institutuion, was established in 1937, the Felician Sisters could not have foretold how their commitment to Catholic higher education in the Franciscan tradition would have resulted in 75 years of spiritual enrichment, technological advances, campus enhancements, tremendous successes and accomplished graduates. The first full-time student body were 18 students living at the Felician Motherhouse. Today, some 4,200 Madonna University students pursue rigorous academic programs world-wide, engage in service learning projects that change lives, and set records and good examples as scholar athletes.
75th Anniversary Mission:
Engage the entire Madonna University community including, students, faculty, alumni, staff, benefactors, friends and community leaders in our 14-month celebration. It’s a mission we hope you will accept.
75th Anniversary Goals:
- Highlight the achievements of the Madonna University community
- Celebrate our growth and success
- Bring together the Madonna community through a series of events that celebrate our heritage. These events include lectures, alumni gatherings, athletic contests, performances and exhibits, signature events, and a community birthday celebration.
