You have paved the way for me.

Thank you for supporting the University of Tennessee! The campus mission and spirit are energized with your involvement.

My classmates and I are fortunate to have access to the faculty, facilities and resources supported by generous alumni and donors. As a junior in the College of Engineering, I am pursuing my dream of a career in nuclear engineering.

This is a career goal I wouldn't have dreamed possible without the support and encouragement of my professors and peers. I've been inspired by UT's emphasis on diversity and producing more women engineers – sparking my passionate involvement in the Society for Women Engineers (SWE).

Through the opportunities provided by my college, I also have secured an internship with Exelon, which has provided hands-on experience working with nuclear fuels and reactors. These experiences solidified my interest in working with nuclear energy and will prove invaluable to my future.

Your gift makes real-world experiences like mine possible. Alumni contributions sustain scholarship aid, faculty support, technology and academic opportunities outside of the classroom.

On behalf of all of my fellow students, we are grateful for your support. Go Vols!

For Tennessee,
