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!
