Environmental Science Major ('14)

A Note of Thanks To Donors ...

When I was a senior in high school, I wanted to go to college far away from home and my parents. Briar Cliff's financial aid package out-competed every school I was considering.

I weighed my options and decided on Briar Cliff — the closest school possible to my house — just around the corner on Broken Kettle Road. I was reluctant because I was set on going away. But on the first day, I fell in love with this place. 

I have been involved in so much — from touring Italy with the choir, to assisting at confirmation retreats and joining many campus clubs and organizations. Without you, I would not be able to attend this wonderful university. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
