You Belong Here

Whether you have been away from the Sheil Catholic Center for 6 years or 60, we hope that you will always feel that you belong here. For many Northwestern University alumni, the Sheil Catholic Center played a pivotal role in their undergraduate or graduate experiences. Likewise, our alumni have played a fundamental part in developing Sheil as a community.

Stay Connected

We encourage you, as a Sheil alumni, to keep in touch and come back to visit whenever they are in the area. Whether you’re still in the Chicago area or have moved on to another state or country, please keep us posted on your life! Register with us so we have your updated information and can keep you posted about alumni events and other gatherings. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you!
