Why I Give

Gratitude for a Life Saved

How do you ever pay someone back for saving your life? If I could help in some small way to give back to the university for what they did for me, that is what I want to accomplish.

—Dwayne Chatoney

Student Support

When students get to school, I want them to enjoy college life, enjoy the fullness of school, instead of thinking about getting a job, worrying about accumulating debt, or having to take time off to save money. I want to give in a way that was given to me, so that someone won't have to struggle or give up on their dreams.

—Dr. Bridget Arnold Cobb
