Introducing The Student Foundation  

mdotThe Student Foundation is comprised of students who educate their fellow students on the importance of giving back to the university through philanthropic events.

Their mission is to build a tradition of philanthropy within the student body and to facilitate leadership in its members.

The Student Foundation will take part in traditional campus events (Founder’s Day, Homecoming, Philanthropy Day) while building new traditions through events of their own.
