Greatest Need


The university has broken ground on a new 72-bed dormitory, which will provide male students with modern hotel-style accommodations, similar to what female students currently enjoy at The Lofts. Please consider supporting this addition to campus, which will serve students by spring 2016.

Other Areas to Support



Our students are special — you can see it in their faces. They want to succeed and make the most of life, but some need help affording a quality education. When you donate to scholarships, you are investing in their future.

Donate to Students



Our professors are not only experts in their fields — they are dedicated to helping and teaching students. By supporting our faculty, you are strengthening the very thing that makes our education second to none.

Donate to Faculty



From theatre productions and art studios to science labs and libraries, a top-tier, personalized education involves some serious costs. Donating to our programs will enhance campus and the student experience.
