MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- An anonymous benefactor has given Marquette University $10-million to build a new residence for Jesuit priests and support need-based scholarships.
Reverend Robert Wild, interim president, says $7.5-million will be used for the residence and to help renovate the center of campus. An additional $7.5-million will be needed in donations for the project. Marquette hired Kubala Washatko Architects to design the new Jesuit residence.
The remaining $2.5-million will be used for need-based scholarships, which is a priority in the university's strategic plan, according to Wild.
