As a first-generation college graduate, I have enjoyed volunteering with the University’s efforts to support first-generation and low-income students. Our work has connected these talented low-income and first-generation students to all kinds of alumni who are interested in mentoring and helping students find internships and permanent jobs. So you can imagine how pleased I was to read President Eisgruber’s Page dealing with “Increasing Access.”

I am very proud of my alma mater playing a leadership role in boosting access and diversity for our country’s higher education. Thank you, Chris, for your foresight and iniatives to ensure these students thrive at Princeton and beyond. And I encourage alumni of all stripes to connect with Princeton students as a very rewarding way to “give back.”
