Dear Member of the Class of 2022,

The seniors of the Class of 2019 hope that you are having a great summer! We are looking forward to meeting you and helping you become a part of the Creighton Prep community, and we are writing to introduce you to the Creighton Prep Big Brothers program.

This program is important to the seniors as well as to you. It gives us the opportunity to share with you the spirit of Prep. During the spring, much work has been done to match freshmen with members of the senior class. These seniors have adopted freshmen as their Little Brothers for the coming school year.

Your Big Brother has received your contact information and should have already contacted you! If your Big Brother has not contacted you, please contact Greg Glenn at gglen@prep.creighton.edu and/or Eric Thompson at ethom@prep.creighton.edu so that we can follow up.

The very first activity sponsored by the Big Brothers is a welcome dance for all Prep, Duchesne, Marian and Mercy freshmen on Saturday, June 30, 2018 from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. This is our way to welcome you to Prep. The dance will be held in the Sullivan Center, music will be provided by a DJ and refreshments will be served. Dress code for this dance is casual and appropriate dress. The cost is $5 and you should enter through the west Sullivan Center doors.

To start the school year off well, we will have an orientation for all freshmen on Friday, August 10, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Prep, and attendance is required.

During the school year, there will be many activities planned for you with your Big Brother including the New Families Mass, Dinner and Orientation on Sunday, August 12, the Freshman Homecoming Dance on Friday, October 12 (semi-formal dress) and the Freshman Christmas Dance on Saturday, December 1 (semi-formal dress).

We also want to remind you and your parents to mark your calendars immediately for the 2019 Freshman Retreat from Thursday, January 31 to Saturday, February 2, 2019. This retreat is mandatory for all freshmen, and begins on Thursday at 6 p.m. and concludes on Saturday morning around 11 a.m. Please do not schedule any conflicts for this time. Failure to complete Freshman Retreat may result in a student not being allowed to graduate from Prep. If you have any questions, please contact the Campus Ministry Office at 402-393-1190 Ext. 433.

Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to seeing you at the welcome dance on Saturday, June 30.
