Our Students Shine

We know our students are fantastic. We want our donors to know you too! Let us know if something exciting happens. Perhaps your favorite professor taught you something you hadn't thought about before or your team came together to win a game or you or your organization did something special for the community like tutoring students, helped rebuild homes, worked in a shelter, experienced your first NYC trip, performed in your first show or your family came to visit. Your donor just wants to know that you are enjoying the college experience.
