Meet Jeffrey Wald, the 2013 Student Caller for the Annual Giving Campaign


The Alumni Relations Office is pleased to introduce you to Jeffrey Wald '13, pictured above with his wife and oldest child, who will make annual giving calls to support the 2013 campaign. 

Jeffrey Wald - Introduction

My name is Jeffrey Wald and I am currently a 3L at the University of St. Thomas School of Law, and a proud graduate of the St. Thomas undergraduate class of 2009.  You could say purple runs deep in my family's blood, as my wife also graduated from St. Thomas in 2010.
I am excited to be concluding my legal education and beginning my legal career. Next fall I will begin a one year judicial clerkship in Minnesota, and then after that, we'll just have to wait and see. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at St. Thomas, and have kept myself busy by competing in two moot court competitions, being Managing Editor of the Journal of Law and Public Policy, and by helping to run the Alumni Reflections Series each semester.
Outside of law, my wife and I are kept busy by our two sons, Alyosha and Ezra.  We enjoy staying warm in the winter, and going to parks and lakes during the summer.  My wife and I have an ongoing debate about whether Minnesota lakes are better than Florida beaches (my wife grew up in Miami).  A highlight of my time in law school was our trip to Italy this past fall break with a 2 year old and an 8-month pregnant wife - talk about an adventure! 

Giving Made Easy- Create a Sustaining Relationship with UST Law   

A sustaining relationship allows a donor to demonstrate support for UST Law and its mission over a longer period of time. Participation continues automatically on a monthly or yearly basis. Donors who enter into a sustaining relationship will be removed from all other annual giving solicitations, including phone calls in spring and early summer.

Sustaining relationship members can increase, decrease or cancel a monthly or yearly gift at any time. To create a sustaining relationship, complete the Sustaining Relationship form today. Mail the completed form to Development Office, University of St. Thomas, P.O. Box 64947, Saint Paul, MN 55164-0947. You may also complete the form over the telephone by contacting the UST Development Office at (651) 962-6999 or (800) 328-6819, Ext. 2-6999.
