Celebrating Stritch through 85 images

What better way to celebrate our first 85 years than to enjoy a visual stroll through history, remembering some of the pivotal milestone memories as well as some of the treasured everyday moments that made Stritch the beloved community it is today? Each week, we will add new images and historical tidbits so that, no matter where you live or how long it’s been since you’ve made a visit to campus, you can partake in this celebratory year as it unfolds.

If you see a photo that’s particularly significant to you, please let us know! We would love to hear additional details about the images we’re sharing and to provide you with a digital copy as a keepsake.
