Dear Alumni/ae and Friends:
On behalf of our students, faculty and staff, I extend our sincere thanks to the nearly 2,400 alumni and friends who donated more than $3.8 million to St. Joseph’s College during the last fiscal year. From the 131 members of The Aquinas Society, who have made long-term investments in the future of the College, to our many first-time contributors, your generosity and abiding support of St. Joseph’s College allowed us to provide scholarships, programs and services for thousands of deserving women and men. The success of the College should not be measured in buildings and facilities, but in the lives of our students and graduates who have been transformed by their SJC educational experience.
We are proud to acknowledge SJC’s many dedicated donors in the College’s 2015-2016 President’s Report. As part of our continuing efforts to reduce our environmental impact, we invite you to view the report online. A limited number of printed versions are also available upon request. To obtain a copy, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org or 631.687.2669.
As we begin our 99th year of excellence in the Josephite tradition, our students remain fundamentally the same. They come to us with great potential — potential that can be fulfilled and realized at this special College — but with limited means and real challenges to overcome. Their success at this extraordinary institution is dependent on their hard work the dedication of our faculty and staff, but also the generosity of our friends and benefactors who financially support programs and scholarships.
Thank you for all you have done for SJC. I hope that you will continue to be generous with your time, talent and treasure so that we can serve the needs of our students for generations to come.
Jack P. Calareso, Ph.D.
