Guests enjoyed a variety of fine wines and appetizers, and prospective graduate students and prospective adult undergraduate students engaged in conversations with alumni, deans and representatives of the National Alumni Board.   

Alumni shared stories about the significance of the education offered at SXU and the impact that education has had on their career paths. This reception was a collaborative effort by the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations and the Department of Admission to raise SXU's profile as a leader in higher education in the Chicagoland area.

In addition to raising funds to support student scholarships, regional events are important for building lasting relationships with our alumni and friends while advancing the virtues of personal and professional excellence through education at SXU.
