I'm a member of the Young Alumni Circle because...

After transferring to Villanova after my freshman year, I instantly felt all of the excitement and joy of truly loving my university. Giving back to 'Nova after graduating was an easy decision because the school gave me so much-academically, personally and spiritually-in three short years. I will continue to support the University because I want future students to have as wonderful a college experience as I did.

Proverbs 3:27 says: “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.” As a product and recipient of Villanova's Center for Multicultural Affairs, I am paying forward a gift of thanksgiving. This gift will serve as a dedication to the monumental impact the Center's services have placed upon my life. Not only have they blessed me, but the office has been an incredible blessing to countless students from all walks of life.
