SPARK (Summer Priority Advising & Registration Kick-off)


2022 SPARK

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. This is also an opportunity for advising and start of the course registration process for the fall semester. Sessions 1 to 4 and 6 allow for the students to spend the night on campus and Session 5 will be a virtual session. All sessions will allow students to engage with others in the Class of 2026! 


SPARK schedule for students will be available via the Marquette Guide in May 2022. Download the Marquette Guide app to your phone by going directly to the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play Store and searching for Marquette Guide!
