“At two alumni reunions, I was fortunate enough to be present as classmates spoke about their respective class scholarships. The amazing, energizing and exciting part was that after receiving updates on the scholarship progress, both classes focused their attention on how they could do more. It was quite a wonderful and energizing moment to witness and a great reminder on our alumni’s impact on current students!” – Hayden Rahn, Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement

“Not only do I get to learn something new every day, but I also get to help research and science that is literally making the world a better place. How cool is that?
