I remembered the effort the school put through to help meet my financial need when I first applied and allowed me to attend (partly through the Dixon Scholarship) and I think back to that every time I make a pledge to Southwestern. I give in whatever amount I can, every year, so that others can also benefit just as I did from attending Southwestern.

Giving to Southwestern corresponds to my firm belief that man reaps what he sows. As a fourth generation graduate of Southwestern, I can attest to Southwesterns success in transforming lives. Southwestern literally changed my life by introducing me to a foreign world of literature and academics as well as engendering an abiding passion for learning. If a small donation helps someone else to attain this enlightened sense of reality and challenge, then Im happy to give.

I give to Southwestern because I benefited from a scholarship, and I want to be a part of providing a similar benefit to future students.

SU gave so much to mea foundation for a career, an ability to think for myself, invaluable friendships, and cherished memories. And SU continues to give even after graduation through alumni networking opportunities. How could I not give back?!

I give to SU because Southwestern enriches students by providing them with endless opportunities to experience life both in and out of the classroom. Southwestern knows the way, I went my way and now Id like to help support students direct their way.
