Thank You!

There’s no better way to say it. #CougsGive ’18 was a huge success because of YOU.

From the Class of 1956 to current students, Cougs of all ages took a moment to post, tweet, share, call, comment, email, and of course—GIVE.

Your support makes possible the student success stories like those featured in this issue.

Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for the Carson College of Business. Mark your calendars now for March 2019 Giving Day!
