"Throwback Thursday" is a weekly feature in the Social Summer Series

Today's Throwback Thursday takes you back 10 years to the unveiling of the architect's rendering of the Al McGuire Center on February 18, 2002.

Marquette President Father Wild, S.J. introduces plans for the new on-campus facility as Athletic Director Bill Cords and women's basketball Head Coach Terri Mitchell unveil the design.

As part of the unveiling, Marquette alumnus Steve Michels announced a gift of $1.5 million to the project. With Mr. Michel's gift, Marquette had raised $19 million for construction of the facility. The McGuire Center opened in October 2003 at a cost of $31 million.
