Alumni Support is Key to Student Success
“Thank you for seeing potential in the University and the students. Because of you, I can succeed.”
-Hank Urey '14
Hank Urey '14, a marketing major and basketball player, is grateful for the donors who made his scholarships and financial aid possible. “It has taken a huge weight off of my shoulders. I can concentrate on being a college student without worrying about finances.”
With an outgoing personality and appreciation for philanthropy, Hank has been a student-caller for two years in the call center at UMass Lowell, where he contacts alumni to ask for support for the University and students like him. His favorite aspects of UMass Lowell are the positive environment and reputable academics, and he believes in the difference alumni, parents and friends can make by giving back.
“Giving to the University is important because it provides opportunities for students who wouldn’t be able to attend college without financial help. It also helps support facilities and academics on campus.”
