The Alumni Association hosts their annual Alumni Awards Ceremony in the Fall each year. This event honors a very dedicated alumni volunteer with the John J. Finley, ’24 Award, and bestows the Signum Fidei Medal to an individual or group for their contributions to upholding humanitarian principles and the goals and mission of La Salle University and the Christian Brothers. Signum Fidei, meaning “sign of faith,” is the motto of the Christian Brothers.
The Hall of Athletes inducts between three and five athletes, coaches, or teams annually to celebrate. Created through a special partnership between the La Salle University Alumni Association and La Salle’s Athletic Department more than 57 years ago, the Hall of Athletes is celebrated in the spring semester annually. To date, over 163 recognized explorer athletes, including All-Americans, conference champions, and Olympians have been inducted into the Hall of Athletes.
In 2012, the Alumni Association partnered with the Athletic Department to renovate and upgrade the Hall of Athletes display located on the entire first floor of newly named TruMark Financial Center, just outside of Kirk Pool. The redesign of the Hall of Athletes highlights the most important accomplishments of our student athletes and teams and features a timeline of events that chronicles the milestones in La Salle athletic history. It features a touch screen video display, a vintage photo collage of our five original inductees and, of course, the profiles of each member of this special fraternity.
Reunion is a University Event that enhances the life of the University and strengthens the bonds of the University with alumni, staff, faculty and current students. Alumni play a large role in University Life. La Salle has traditionally focused on the five year anniversary classes for reunions, at the same time making an open invitation to all alumni, staff and faculty to attend. In addition, we have partnered with different affinity groups, student organizations, fraternities and sororities to host reunions as well.
Campus tours, liturgies, and large dinner parties with entertainment are a sampling of the activities that we can host. For more information on upcoming reunions, please contact Alumni Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org.
