Please join us as we honor a group of extraordinary alumni and friends!

You’re invited to our annual Evening of Honors, in which Creighton President the Rev. Daniel S. Hendrickson, SJ, PhD, the Deans of each school and college, and other University leaders present the Alumni Achievement Citation, Alumni Merit Awards, Friend of the University Awards and Recent Alumni Award.

Ahead of the awards ceremony, family and friends of the recipients can enjoy drinks, appetizers and camaraderie at a cocktail reception.
