Jesuit Universities have rich athletic histories. Students and alumni across generations have built bonds over touchdowns, baskets, and goals that live on collective memory. But St. Ignatius put a great weight on the value of the arts in the life of a Jesuit university. The Society's first schools were rich in the arts. Today, we remain distinct for our emphasis on the value of a well-rounded, liberal arts education.
It makes sense that this love of culture would extend past the point of graduation. Identifying notable cultural pieces and filtering them through a University prism can create an impactful experience for alumni, parents, and friends of the school. Donors remember these programs as positive interactions with your university, reminding them that the humanities require lifelong engagement.
The alumni and faculty of Fordham University and Loyola Marymount University proudly boasts a wealth of artistic talent and intellectual expertise. At Fordham, Mike and Jake effectively transformed a repetitive program by engaging alumni and faculty to share their expertise of cultural institutions throughout NYC. At LMU, Michelle took over successfully maintaining a rigorous Southern California program and, with the input of a small task force, created a flourishing regional branch in New York, and soon in Arizona.
