“For some students, unexpected circumstances may arise that jeopardize their ability to successfully continue their education. Within our student body, financial hardships happen. Sometimes an emergency can cause a student to question whether they can finish the semester, or even graduate. These life events can interfere with a student’s ability to attain their goals, both inside and outside the classroom. The Student Emergency Fund provides emergency financial support to currently enrolled students who are unable to meet essential expenses due to a temporary or unexpected hardship. Gifts from alumni, faculty and staff, parents, and friends of the institution make the Student Emergency Fund possible. With your support we can ensure that these unexpected events are addressed swiftly in the best interests of our students. Please make your gift today and help our students so they are able to continue to focus on their studies when unanticipated circumstance occurs.”
