Giving Thanks: A letter on behalf of students

Matthew Jordan, president of the Pharmacy Student Council, penned a thank you letter to scholarship donors and supporters of the college.

As student council president, I was asked to give a short thank you from us students to you, the donors. While trying to come up with the words to say that would truly express what it means for us to have your support, there was one word that came to my mind. That word is hope.

In today’s society, it seems that the media and many other outlets like to focus on the bad, whether it be wars, missing people, plagues and so on. We don’t see much in terms of positive influences in our world. With college costs continuing to rise and a job market that feels shattered, what hope is there to go onto college? Why try? Especially when we have to invest anywhere from four to six years to bring ourselves to where we want to be.

That is where the hope you give us comes in. These scholarships show us that you see something in us that shines through. You see that there are people who can go out there and make a difference and change the world’s direction. With that support, you give us the hope that we need, knowing we can achieve our goals and go out there and make that difference. As students, my wish for each and every one of us is that as we move forward in our paths, and we continue to instill this hope in others. We hope to one day be as humble, generous and wise as you.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

White Coat Mentors

Each year, the College  invites alumni and friends to participate in the White Coat Mentor program, which allows students and alumni to connect meaningfully through philanthropy and interaction.

White Coat Mentors, for both the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Doctor of Pharmacy programs, sponsor the purchase of a student’s white coat. The coat, which is presented to P1 students at the Professional Advancement Ceremony in the fall, welcomes students to the professional division with a note from the sponsor to encourage the students and invite them to communicate with the mentor.    Learn more
