Be involved with Stritch

Cardinal Stritch University is stronger when families are engaged in the Stritch community. We are as excited to have you join our Stritch family as we are about welcoming your student.

Whether you live nearby or are one of our international parents thousands of miles away, there are many ways to be involved in the life of Stritch and serve as a resource for your student:

  • Orientation
  • Parent website
  • Volunteer opportunities

Available resources

Your student needs your support and so does Stritch, and you might need a little too. That is why we encourage you to connect with other Stritch families. You can connect at formal events like orientation, or casually while enjoying on campus events like performing arts and athletics.

Funding your student's education

We believe that cost should never be a barrier to a great education. Counselors in our Financial Aid Office are dedicated to helping you with each step of the financial aid process so you can easily find ways to help fund your student's education.
