Think about the last seven semesters. Think about your four (or maybe more) years in college. Picture your friends, remember that most embarrassing moment? That time you scrambled to turn in an assignment or cram for a test you absolutely felt like you were going to bomb? Now think of that time you absolutely rocked whatever you were doing at that very moment. I think we all have experiences here that cross over in one way or another. Now think about that one professor or group of professors, think about the most important thing you learned from them. Remembering your college experience is such a powerful exercise.
Here’s my story: Coming from Tacoma, WA to Carroll I had absolutely no idea how to harness my interests and turn it into success. Before my freshman year ended, I had already found the answers I was looking for. Never before had I thought I could meet people who expressed as much passion for teaching and passion for their field than the professors I had my first year. This is why I am choosing to give back to Carroll. Many of our professors have given up much of their professional careers to witness that spark within their classrooms. Their greatest achievements as professors are most often times through their students, we should thank them for that and ensure future Carroll students get the opportunity to sit in their classes and find their passions. Zane Clark, Class of 2016
If you are a Carroll student who is grateful for student scholarships, financial aid help, going to school on a beautiful campus, having updated labs and computers on campus, having great professors, Carroll’s recreational facilities, renovations in residence halls, Carroll’s library... then you are a GRATEFUL SAINT!
Grateful Saints are students who are appreciative of their Carroll experience as a whole. These students realize that Carroll would not be the place it is today without the support of donors. Donors have given hundreds of thousands of dollars throughout the years to ensure that Carroll students receive the best education possible. Donors include alumni, parents, and friends of Carroll, faculty and staff members, local businesses, corporations, foundations and members of the senior class. These donors truly care about you and your education. Funds are raised for Carroll students through the IMPACT Annual Fund. Contributions to the IMPACT Annual Fund support every Carroll student’s education. Even if you pay all tuition costs and didn’t receive financial aid, your education was subsidized by these gifts. Annual Fund donors have enabled the college to strengthen its programs for the benefit of every student.
Contributors to your education are dedicated to continuing Carroll College’s tradition of excellence. They are proud to see what quality education students at Carroll receive and are eager to see Carroll’s outstanding reputation continue. Take a moment to realize how many people have given their time and treasure to ensure your education is nothing short of excellent. Take a moment to be a Grateful Saint!
