Happy Holidays from the College of Science

As we approach the new year, we are reflecting on all the ways your support has helped to further the mission of the College of Science – a mission anchored in the success of our students. More than 4,000 students are currently pursuing degrees in our college. That's 20% of the University's student population! Support at this pivotal point in their lives affords them the opportunity to focus on the college experiences that we believe will serve as fodder for their future scientific discoveries. In addition, your support provides our students with a sense of belonging that we hope will remain through their academic careers and into their professional lives.

Anna Tatarko, Blake Phillips, and Isabel Peñaloza Araujo represent the many exceptional students in the College of Science who have benefited from your support.

Thank you.
