Celebration honors Alumni Awards recipients, Hall of Fame inductees and Jubilarians

Close to 200 alumni, friends of Stritch and Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi celebrated the 2018 Alumni Award recipients and Athletic Hall of Fame inductees at a ceremony on June 9, 2018. The annual event also honored members of the Class of 1968, who spent a reunion weekend reminiscing, reuniting and becoming the newest class of Stritch Jubilarians, a society which includes alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago.
