Let's Get Social

@CreightonPres: The @Creighton Get Blue event was spirited! #GoJays @BluejayMBB

@MayorGallego: The only way forward is together—innovation cannot happen in silos. Thrilled to see this landmark partnership between @ASU and @Creighton to boost health education opportunities to ASU students, while also addressing our health care professional shortage.

@reillycosgrove: I love Jesuit education that’s it that’s the tweet :’)
