Thank you for supporting Valpo students through the University Guild!


When my son graduated each level of school (elementary, middle & senior high) I always found the contacts broken with the women I’d met there. With the Guild, he graduated but I stayed with the friends I’d made!

"As a Valpo student of yesterday, I grew not just in matters of education but in matters of faith. As a Guild woman today, I can use my passions, finances, and prayers to encourage tomorrow's students to grow in the same ways."
Christine Bateman, Bellevue, WA

"When I was at Valpo, the only thing I knew about the Guild was that we had to vacate our dormitory once a year. After I graduated, my mother got involved in the Guild. Her excitement for it made me want to join as well. When I moved to New Orleans and then Houston, it became a place of connecting to other lovers of Valpo, and to do some good for prospective and future students. "
