Every spring, students like me toss graduation caps into the air, cross the University Commencement stage and accept their diplomas. Together we start what’s next, wherever it may lead, armed with the academics, experience and connections to make our dreams a reality. 

Scholarships allow me time to devote myself fully to preparing for my career. They give me the freedom to pursue internships (including one at Northern Trust), network with industry leaders, participate in mentoring programs, and serve on the Roosevelt student advisory board. If I didn’t have financial help, I wouldn’t be able to take full advantage of the many resources Roosevelt has to offer. 

I am so grateful for these opportunities as I enter my senior year at Roosevelt and I know my classmates are, too. We work hard every day to get the best education and preparation we can for the real world. With your generosity, Roosevelt can continue to offer scholarships to students who, like me, need your help. This spring, consider making college graduation a reality. 

Thank you for making my dream possible.

A degree doesn’t change who you are. I should know — I have four degrees, including three from Roosevelt University. However, a college education does change the way one sees the world, as you will learn from my story.

Starting college is one of most exciting times in a student’s life, if a bit daunting. This is often the first time a young person has lived away from home, surrounded by an unfamiliar environment and new people.
