Making it Happen

As part of reunion activities in past years, the class of 1985 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 so much. I have been looking forward to my college experience at St. Thomas. It has been everything I hoped for academically and socially. I know that I made the right choice for me.

I can’t express how much this scholarship helps me as I navigate through financial obligations and the coursework loads that I have taken on.

I am grateful and honored to be the recipient of this scholarship. I will do my best to excel academically!”

Thomas ’18

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 1985. 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!

Header for the 2016 Honor Roll of Donors pages

Alumni provide critical resources to St. Thomas, and through their philanthropy, every year they show new students what it looks like to give back and pursue the common good. We gratefully acknowledge alumni who gave financial gifts last fiscal year in support of a St. Thomas education.
