Happy Birthday, Marian!

Last Friday, we celebrated the birth of Marian!

Marian University opened as Marian College on September 8, 1936, with eight faculty members and 17 full-time and 25 part-time students. Sponsored and staffed by the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes, a teaching order founded by Father Caspar Rehrl, the Sisters were inspired to found their own university when the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction barred religious attire from public schools.

Here’s to many, many more!
