“I can’t explain enough how important it is to find ways to give back to the place that has provided so many great opportunities for students. … If alumni do not remain loyal and engaged, those same opportunities will not be available to future students. … The smallest gifts still make a difference, especially when you direct them towards programs that you are personally passionate about!”
