Founders Week

We invite you to join us March 27-April 1, for our SUU Founders Celebration, as we salute our rich past and promising future with a variety of events. Importantly, we will pay tribute to the steadfast and visionary men and women who sacrificed greatly to establish the institution and the enduring spirit of modern-day founders who have devoted comparable service to the building of the University over many decades.

A Message from Your Alumni President

"It's easy to see what lies in front of us. It's harder to understand how it all came to be. What if we could turn back time and see the world through the eyes of those before? Would we have more appreciation for what we have? At SUU, we are celebrating 125 years since our founders caught a vision of what 'could be.' They saw the privilege future generations could have if they acted on opportunity. Through sacrifice, their future sits in front of us now. Join me this year as we celebrate them, through a historical Founders Week from March 27-April 1."

-Caytee Wankier ('08)
