'Jewel on the Thames'
Are you the parent of a student in the Class of 2010?
When you support the College through the Parents Fund this year, you can show your pride in your graduating senior by making your gift in his or her honor. Your senior can also make a gift through the Annual Fund in honor of you, a professor or someone else who’s had a special influence in his or her life.
A special honor roll booklet next spring will celebrate the senior parents and students who supported the College this year.
To give, go to http://giving.conncoll.edu or call 1-800-888-7549.
