Join us for a celebration over four decades in the making! On Wednesday, April 10 at 6 p.m. in the Oremus Fine Arts Center, we will bid farewell to five longtime professors: Dr. Gail Gehrig (Sociology) - 44 years; Dr. Joseph Gaziano (Political Science) - 44 years; Mr. Robert Dowse (Aviation) - 25 years; Dr. Valerie Vander Vliet (Biology) - 22 years; and Dr. Patricia Vidmar-Scubic (Sports and Exercise Science) - 13 years. That's a total of 148 years of service to Lewis University! All alumni are invited to attend.


Do you have a special note you'd like to share with one of the retirees? Send it to and we will be sure it gets delivered to them!
