Student Giving Campaign

What is the value of a liberal arts degree? This question was posed to students in the college this fall by members of the CHaSS Student Council. Students were invited to respond with an essay describing how their degree will benefit them in the future. The top essayist received a $500 scholarship for the spring semester. Funding for the scholarship was raised over the course of two years by students for students because they knew scholarships make a real difference in the lives of their peers. The CHaSS Council launched the Student Giving Campaign in October to insure this funding exists in perpetuity.

“I am a big believer in starting a habit of giving while you are young,” said CHaSS Senator Erika Norton. “Utah State has provided me with so many opportunities and I know a lot of other students feel the same way. The experiences that we have had here are priceless. The student giving campaign gives students the opportunity to give back, be a part of something greater than themselves, and help make a difference. Who doesn’t want to do that?”
