I hope you are having a wonderful summer!
I’ve been thinking about the words of the Greek storyteller, Aesop: “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” Truly, they are words that remind me of you. Each time you donate your time, treasure, and talent, you transform yet another UConn student’s life.
I see this transformation in countless thank-you notes that cross my desk from grateful students. What’s most inspiring is how many say they can’t wait to pay it forward. As one student recently said to their donor, “I hope one day I will be able to help UConn students… achieve their goals just as you have helped me.” Your generosity is building a culture of giving that is essential to our continued success as a University. Thank you!
We hope you, as an Oak Grove Society member, enjoy this first look at our new edition of Inside UConn Nation. You’ll learn about what’s going on at UConn and the noteworthy achievements of our alumni. You may even help solve a mystery in our new Mystery Photo feature.
