Immaculata News

Commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Immaculata University by joining us for the Centennial Gala. We will honor the legacy of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in appreciation for their vision, devotion and service to Immaculata University for over 100 years.

The Centennial Gala “Through the Decades” revisits Immaculata’s first 100 years and celebrates these unique eras through music, cuisine and cocktails. Think big band, jazz and pop music; Beef Bourguignon, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Whiskey Sours and much more. You are invited to dress according to your favorite period, so feel free to break out the saddle shoes, bell bottoms, dress or a vintage Mighty Mac uniform.
