Our Results

As part of reunion activities in past years, the class of 1965 endowed a scholarship that has since helped students to make the most of a wonderful opportunity to attend St. Thomas. Below is a note of gratitude from a recent recipient!

“Thank you for being so generous as to have gifted me with something that has allowed me to continue my education at such a wonderful university. … I [graduated this past spring] with two Bachelor of Science degrees in both Actuarial Science and Statistics! I’ve had a truly great experience while at St. Thomas, and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to attend the college that was the best fit for me.

… Without your willingness to give, I know I wouldn’t have been able to plant my feet at St. Thomas. I was very fortunate to have been instructed by amazing professionals, and I know I would not feel as confident as I do today in the decision of my field of study. So again, I want to thank you for allowing me to take this journey head on, and I hope one day I too can do the same for a future student at St. Thomas.”

As this endowed scholarship increases in size with additional annual contributions as well as investment income, more Tommies will be able to benefit from the generosity of alumni of the class of 1965. Alumni know firsthand the value of a St. Thomas education, and the university's goal is to put that opportunity within reach for all academically qualified students. Reunion giving helps the effort!
