Endowments Open Doors to Education

“SAU has given me an opportunity to get an education first and foremost, but also to develop a strong bond with the teachers and lifelong relationships with my classmates. The scholarships I received to come to SAU have allowed me more time to focus on my studies because I don’t have to work as many hours and I don’t have to worry with loans and how I will pay them off. Being in the Ag department is like having another family. The professors really do care about your success in the classroom and your ability to apply your knowledge in the real world.”
