Alumni Trivia: July 2018
Summer is usually a leisurely time in Morris, but not always: do you know what event shook up the town and campus in the summer of '75? Let us know!
The answer to our last question ("How many years has the Gateway Program been around to recruit, retain, and graduate talented students of color?") is "24." Thanks to everyone who shared their memories with us!
The Power of Philanthropy
