Thank you to everyone who supported Support our Students (SOS) events and initiatives in March. Once again, we were overwhelmed by the engagement on campus, with 37 college departments supporting SOS events helping us raise over $18,000 for our students. All funds raised in March will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the College – doubling its impact.
Below are a few highlights from this year’s Support our Students Celebration. Photos from this year’s events are now available in the 2019 SOS Flickr gallery.
