Week 24: Jesuit Residence
More than 50 Jesuits live in the Jesuit Residence, also known as the Jes Res. Built in 1916, the four-story structure was originally the Stratford Arms Hotel. Marquette University bought the hotel in 1962 and converted it into Heraty Hall, a women’s residence hall. After further renovation in 1973, the red-bricked building became the Jesuit Residence.

Make the End of the World Yours: Marquette in Social Media
Tom Pionek and Dave Murphy remember when the world was going to end. Tom and Dave, both directors in Marquette University’s Office of Marketing and Communication, brought today’s #musocial media audience back to May 21, 2011. That Saturday in May was predicted to be Judgment Day. The day after, May 22, was the university’s graduation ceremonies.
Responding to the rapture buzz in social media, Marquette’s Twitter account (managed by Tim Cigelske) tweeted: “The world can’t end before #mu11 graduation. The Jesuits have some influence in this department #Rapture.” In this one-minute audio clip, Tom Pionek explains how Marquette weaved Jesuit themes into a social media meme.
The Jesuit ideal, Cura Personalis, is a Latin phrase that translates as “Care for the Whole Person.” This banner is on display in Marquette University’s Straz Hall, home to the College of Business Administration.

All I really need to know about Ignatius I learned from a Spanish olive. A hilarious video for anyone who loves Jesuit schools. Thanks, Gee!
Start the semester with thoughts on excellence. Marquette President Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J., explains the Jesuit concept of magis, “the restless desire for excellence” (31 seconds).
