Alumni Gala

  "Go forth and set the world on fire."
— St. Ignatius Loyola


The Alumni Gala is the signature event of Saint Joseph’s Alumni Association and an opportunity to spend an evening with old and new friends.

At this annual event, the University presents the Shield of Loyola, the most prestigious honor bestowed by the University. The recipient is a distinguished alumnus or alumna who has had remarkable success in his or her profession, whose life reflects the values of St. Ignatius Loyola, and who has demonstrated unparalleled loyalty to Saint Joseph's University. See a list of past Shield of Loyola recipients.

This is a great event to enjoy an evening with fellow alumni while we recognize and celebrate those who embody Jesuit ideals and are committed to furthering SJU’s mission.  Proceeds from the Alumni Gala support our students through the Shield of Loyola Scholarship Fund.
