Last week, students showed their appreciation for Saint Michael's donors in an outpouring of gratitude during Alumni Appreciation Week. Institutional Advancement and 40 student volunteers put on a three day Thank-a-thon in Alliot Lobby. More than 350 students wrote thank you postcards to donors, and an even greater number sported "I Like Saint Mike's Alumni" stickers around campus.
One student from the Class of 2015 wrote, "Thank you for making my education at Saint Michael's College possible - it has truly changed the way I think and express myself." A senior expressed her gratitude for scholarship support by saying, "My merit scholarship drew me here and the wonderful magic of the community, academics and opportunities on campus have kept me here."
Support from alumni, parents and friends help to make each student's Saint Michael's experience possible. On average gifts provide $7,000 per student per year to bridge the difference between what is paid and the actual cost per student.
A big thank you to everyone on campus who participated!
