OWN A PIECE OF THE AVALANCHE
The Avalanche was a cherished hangout for generations of Marquette students. The faithful have deep affection for the memories of friends and fun at the "The 'Lanche" – memories not lost, but perhaps a little faded over time.
The 'Lanche stood on Wells Street between 15th and 16th Streets, and was closed and razed in 1997 as part of Campus Circle, the urban renewal program that shaped today’s campus. The site is now Campus Town East, home to students making their own Marquette memories.
Alumni can now own a piece of the 'Lanche, with the availability of a small cache of bricks and glass blocks from the actual building. Saved during demolition, these keepsakes will now be turned into more than $100,000 in support of Bridge to the Future scholarship funds for current Marquette students. Supply is limited, so when they are gone, they are gone!
ABOUT THE BRIDGE TO THE FUTURE FUND
The Bridge to the Future Scholarship Fund provides financial aid assistance for students whose family's changing economic circumstances threaten their ability to continue their Marquette education.
