Giving back: Not just a holiday state of mind

Although the holiday season brings a flurry of do-good and feel-good stories, we’ve found that putting a priority on giving back to the community and those in need is a year-round focus for many of our alumni and students.


Happy Holidays!

We wish you and your families and friends a very peaceful and happy holiday season. It’s been a pleasure providing you with Enews throughout 2012 and we look forward to continuing to be in touch in 2013.
