Donor Recognition

We thank the thousands of alumni, parents and friends who choose to support the college each year, and we are honored to recognize you as generous supporters in our Honor Roll of Donors. Your gifts transform our students and campus, and we share our annual Report from the President to show your gifts at work. Our Call to Action Campaign donors continue to make a difference in the lives of our students and the campus--thank you for being loyal Vikings!
