Who Loves UHD? Faculty & Staff Do!

Gator Students Share Their Love Too

The Campus Community continues to show the love for its Gator students.

With only 15% of employees participating so far, the pledges and gifts total more than $27,181.41 already. Imagine how many students we could help if we all participate!

And our students are sharing their love thanks to the Give To Gators Campaign.

Take Madeleine Diagne, a senior International Business major. From Houston to Senegal and back, she recently earned a place in Harvard Business School’s Summer Venture in Management Program. Diagne is grateful for UHD’s constant support throughout her journey.

“I am so incredibly blessed to attend UHD because they are so supportive of every endeavor I want to pursue,” Diagne said. “I can go to sleep at night without having any worry or stress about having financial strain or difficulty because UHD is the most supportive school I know. Thank you so much for continuing to support me and my education.”  

Since arriving to UHD, Riley Hardwick’s Gator life has been filled with numerous scholarships and accolades.

“I can’t express how grateful I am for the scholarships I’ve received,” the senior majoring in Safety Management said. “They’ve led to so many different opportunities for me, including the freedom and time to give back through Peer Mentoring. I wouldn’t be the student that I am today without the support that I’ve received.”

Remember, where and how much to give is your choice. Every unit reaching 100% participation is eligible for a pizza party from Provost Bordelon. The G2G Campaign runs through March 31.
