Centennial Celebration

Historic Past, Ambitious Future

In celebration of our centennial, Immaculata looks back on our historic past and forward to our ambitious future. We invite you to join us for some of the special centennial events planned throughout the year, contribute to the Centennial Campaign and reconnect with your alma mater.

Update on Centennial Gala and Reunion

Out of concern for the uncertainties generated by the COVID-19 virus and related procedures, Reunion Weekend will not be held in April 2021. We will combine the 2020 and 2021 Reunions, for class years ending in 0, 1, 5 and 6, and celebrate them during the October 8 & 9, 2021 Centennial Gala and Reunion weekend. Our hope is to have Reunion Weekend resume the usual schedule in April 2022. Questions can be directed to Susan Arnold at sarnold@immaculata.edu.

Campus looked different in 1920

Lasting Traditions

Immaculatans still celebrate Carol Night and many other beloved, timeless IU traditions.

A Legacy of Champions

Our athletic teams are playing in championship tournaments and students are still walking across the stage to receive their diploma.

Decades of Distinction

Distinguishing ourselves through academic excellence has been a hallmark of the past century.
