"Reflecting on my time at The University of Scranton, I realize how fortunate I am to have spent my defining years among such great people. Academically, the professors of the Kania School of Management ingrained in me the skills to excel in a competitive workplace, exceed the expectations of my employers and stand out among my peers. Personally, through The University of Scranton's men's rugby club, I was introduced to the friends that I will always consider family. I am proud to be a Scranton Royal and Norseman."

    Scranton Experience

    Well before you began your Scranton journey, alumni invested in you to make your educational experience life-changing.

    Scholarships, local and global service trips, retreats, internships, athletics, music performances, and research opportunities, just to name a few, enrich the Scranton student experience and are largely funded through donor generosity.

    As #Royals4Others, we are calling on you to continue this circle of generosity. Your gift strengthens the University’s world-class reputation (not to mention the value of your degree), supports initiatives that defined your Scranton experience, and creates opportunities for generations to come.
