Nicole Raupach '14 Gains Firsthand Experience
Throughout my four years at Washington & Jefferson College, I have been exposed to a variety of experiences - in and out of the classroom - that have prepared me for life after college. Thanks to your generous support, I am the first in my family to attend college.
When I graduate with a degree in business administration this May, I will have completed six internships through my time at Washington & Jefferson College. Through these internships, I have gained a substantial amount of hands-on experience, but because some were unpaid, financial support was needed.

Brandon Rauch '14 Shares Thanks for Your Support
As I enter my second semester senior year, I have to take a second to reflect on my past four years at Washington & Jefferson College. As a German and music double major, they have been four tremendously eventful years. All of my time and adventures on this campus have been supported greatly by generous friends, professors, administration, and alumni. For that, I am eternally grateful.
Frank Galizia, Jr., '14 Shares His W&J Story
After my first introductory psychology class, I was a shy, nervous student who really kept to himself and was scared as to what to expect from W&J. I have joined various organizations throughout my journey at W&J, including the Asian Cultural Association, the Chinese Club, the International Club, Student Activities Board, and several academic honors organizations. I also have been afforded the opportunity to study abroad at Lingnan University in Hong Kong.
All of these experiences have helped to transform me into the more confident, outgoing individual that I am today. I continue to appreciate all of the experiences, skills, and countless opportunities W&J has provided me.
Your Support Made it Possible for Natalie Gill '16 to Travel Abroad
The concept of a liberal arts education is what made me choose W&J, and I am fortunate to be able to do well in the classroom while partaking in a plethora of exciting activities on campus. I spent a month last summer in Ireland, England, and France completing my first Magellan Project on American versus European presumptions about today’s rising generation of leaders. During my time abroad, I was forced to mature in independence and learn valuable life skills that I will use for years to come.
This life changing experience for me has been made possible through generous alumni donations. They also contribute to the fund by providing housing for traveling students all over the world, as well as setting up internships and interviews for various projects.
