Father Wild Appreciation Night Feb. 19 Includes Bobblehead
Dec. 2, 2010
In recognition of the career of Marquette President Robert A. Wild, S.J., the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will hold a ceremony in his honor during the Saturday, Feb. 19, men's basketball game.
All fans in attendance will receive a commemorative bobblehead of him at the game, 8 p.m. vs. Seton Hall at the Bradley Center. Tickets are available online and by calling 1-800-745-3000.
Father Wild, an avid basketball fan, championed Marquette's membership in the BIG EAST Conference in 2005. Fans can catch a glimpse of him at home basketball games, where he is known for establishing the Marquette gold sweater vest as preferred fan apparel.
The university will have completed more than $375 million of construction, renovation and beautification projects during the presidency of Father Wild, who will retire next summer. Those projects include the Al McGuire Center, Raynor Library, School of Dentistry, Zilber Hall and Eckstein Hall.
