Scholars & Donors Reception 2013
One of the most important, if not the most important, reasons that CCSU’s loyal alumni contribute to the University is to make a difference in students’ lives, to help a student just as someone had helped them. Near the end of September, the University celebrated that dynamic connection by bringing together many of this year’s scholarship recipients and some of the generous donors who helped make the scholarships possible.
For many CCSU students, the gift of financial support is the crucially important margin
of excellence without which a university education would be impossible. For others,
it’s the critical resource that frees them from hours of part-time work and enables
them to focus on and excel in their studies. For still others, alumni generosity provides
the means to join faculty in scholarly research that enriches their education and
genuinely advances our knowledge.Sc
This was the second year of the Scholars and Donors Reception, and nearly 300 student scholarship recipients were on hand to meet and share their gratitude with donors and representatives of the endowed scholarship funds.
