LMU will honor its past and celebrate its future throughout the centennial year. Join alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends at special events and community service days, and stock up on limited-edition merchandise and memorabilia.
The LMU community is steadfast in mission and unified in our common history steeped in tradition. Whether it's the Lion Fight Song, the rumors of tunnels under Sunken Garden or the life-changing Jesuit education-- we are all unified in purpose.
LMU has evolved significantly in its first century. Keeping up is a challenge, so we've gathered some facts and figures -- great trivia to challenge your friends at your next centennial celebration gathering.
Our story is about much more than facts and dates: It's about YOU. Do you have an LMU story to tell? A special memory you'd like to share? Post it here, reminisce with your fellow Lions, and be part of LMU history.
We'd like to know what you have to say. If you couldn't find an answer to your centennial-related question, we're here to help. We also recommend contacting the university office sponsoring the event and/or subject of your inquiry -- the campus directory is here.
