Crusader Strong Campaign: Completing Marian’s Outdoor Athletic Complex

During the past decade, Marian’s campus has grown – adding a performing arts center, a front entrance, a lobby and an academic center, while refreshing our classrooms, cafeteria, hallways and labs – all for the same reason: to create the optimal student experience. Crusader Strong – a $7 million fundraising campaign focused on Marian’s outdoor athletic facilities – is now underway.
