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, I am following your path in pursuit of my dream of a career in international relations.

This is a career goal I wouldn't have dreamed possible without the support and encouragement of my professors and peers. I've been given the unique opportunity to create my own major, one that unites all of my passions — Chinese, Global Studies and Asian Studies.

Through my Chinese professor, Yen-Chen Hao, I discovered the U.S. Department of State's Critical Language Scholarship Program. My acceptance to this competitive program allowed me to immerse myself in Chinese language studies this summer in Suzhou, China.

Your gift can make 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,
