SPARK (Summer Priority Advising & Registration Kick-off) offers students and their families the opportunity to prepare for their upcoming transition to Marquette University. Students will learn more about Marquette's Jesuit mission and what it means to be a member of the Marquette community as they prepare to go forth to set the world on fire.
