On October 25, 2012, more than three hundred donors, students, and faculty gathered at the McNamara Alumni Center to celebrate the power of scholarships and fellowships to change students' lives. The afternoon provided an opportunity for donors to meet the recipients of their awards, and for students to thank donors in person for their generosity.
