Meet the Harrison Scholars

With a gift to Anchor Fund, you invest in our students and enable them to pursue their dreams. Students like Amanda Lewis ’17:

About Amanda: Amanda is a double major in Business Management and Human Communications Studies. In addition to her academics, she is one half of the pop duo Turn Life Lunar. “Balancing academic, hobbies, a budding social life, and involvement in campus organizations is a challenge. The University of Hartford has prepared me for the real world in this aspect. Of course there are going to be challenges in life, but here, you are taught how to handle it.”

Campus Organizations
: Secretary of the American Marketing Association; Member and Director of House Management/Archives of Delta Gamma Fraternity

Aspirations: “I want to be a part of something that improves people’s lives. My ambitions are to be successful in music, a business owner and an investor. I want to inspire others to see that taking chances is a crucial part of success.”

Annual gifts, both large and small . . .

add up to something big! Not only do gifts of all sizes work together to make a difference to our students, but participation is key – our percentage of alumni donor support has a significant impact. The more you invest in the University of Hartford, the more valuable a University of Hartford degree becomes.

“We must support those that need it the most.”

—Dorothy Schirow, founding member of the University

“WE were supported by those came before us.
It’s our responsibility to carry that tradition forward.”

—Robert J. Carr ’93, Alumni Board and CETA Board of Visitors


Six hundred gifts of any size move our participation percentage up one point which translates to higher national college rankings and an increased likelihood in receiving financial support from corporations and foundations.

Help us meet this year's goal of $755,000. Gifts of $25, $100, $500, and $1,000 all add up to dramatically increase our financial resources. Make a gift today.
