As you know, our Annual President’s Dinner has become the
University’s premier fundraising event. The revenue generated
through this marvelous evening constitutes a major portion of the
funding, which is directly dispersed to our most deserving students
in the form of scholarships and other types of financial aid.
This past academic year, more than 94% of our undergraduate
students received some form of financial assistance, an economic
reality that makes the success of our Dinner even more vital.
