Where did you spend most of your time as a student at PUC? Which friends formed your most intimate circle? Which professors do you remember most fondly? If you’re like most students at PUC, the center of your world on campus—more than your graduating class or even your dorm—was the community you found within your academic department.
This year, instead of asking for your help with one big project, we want to give you the chance to provide better opportunities for the students who are following in your academic footsteps. Your department needs your help today, and you can make a real and immediate impact by giving toward one of the important projects below.
