Thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends of the U of S, last year's campaign efforts raised over $848,000. All donations throughout the campaign supported a variety of student-centered initiatives, such as awards and bursaries. Funding from the campaign also provided funding for travel opportunities and extracurricular activities related to a student's area of study.
The theme for the Campaign for Students is Dream Big! Students come to the U of S in pursuit of achieving their big dreams. Donors like you play an important role in allowing students to realize their aspirations and ease their financial burdens.
