Did You Know They Went To Marquette?

Did You Know They Went To Marquette?


We know that each year a couple thousand students from Marquette graduate and move on with their lives to bigger things. The question is, do we ever wonder who these people are and what they've done with their lives? There are many students who graduated from Marquette and became famous that most of us may not have even heard of. The following five people came from different backgrounds and achieved different things in their lives. Makes you wonder who we will be when we graduate.

1. Tom Snyder

You know, the guy who had his own talk show called "The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder." Not only was he a very famous talk show host, but he was born in Milwaukee, too! He was born to be a Marquette student from day one!

2. Rondell Sheridan

Yes, this is not a joke! This man was born and raised in the windy city! If you do not know who this is, you are truly missing out because this is pretty much making my childhood TV shows ten times better. He is the dad from "That's So Raven" and went to Marquette! Crazy, I know. If this didn't at least make you smile, you don't know what you are missing out on!

3. Amy Madigan

You may be staring at that picture and wondering, who is that? Others may look at this picture and think, wow she looks really familiar. Amy Madigan, is most known for her appearance in the movie "Field of Dreams." She also graduated from Marquette with a degree in Philosophy, but then later on became famous for her acting and singing. Does this refresh your mind at all?

4. Chris Farley

Is this not one of the coolest discoveries you've come across?! He was super funny and always known for having a good sense of humor! He's best known for being in the movie, "Tommy Boy." Unfortunately, he passed away early in his years, but he will forever be cherished as a Golden Eagle!

5. Tab Baker

This man has been in many movies and shows, but is most known for "Save the Last Dance," "Gladiator," and "Prison Break." Although he hasn't played huge roles, he has still made a big presence. Does his name ring any bells?

You go, girl.

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds. It's easy to lose hope in these situations and to feel like it would be easier to just give up. However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

"Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."

13. Colossians 2:10

"And in Christ you have been brought to fullness."

14. 2 Timothy 1:7

It's been a long, long time.


This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning. As rumors are running rampant about their getting back together and a possible tour, now seems like a good time to reflect on their past. Specifically, my favorite songs that they've written. And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"

2. "Australia"

3. "Hold On"

4. "Shelf"

5. "Can't Have You"

6. "Turn Right"

7. "SOS"

8. "Sorry"

9. "Black Keys"

10. "First Time"

11. "Hey Baby"

12. "Paranoid"
