The Thiel Fund

Students enjoying lunch in the Rotunda Bistro

Everyone. Every gift. Every year. Annual gifts to The Thiel Fund go exclusively to the areas of greatest need of the College, funding need based scholarships, academic programming, athletics, and campus improvements. This fund annually provides for the challenges we face here and now, such as unseen expenses, student needs and special opportunities.

Your support makes it possible to:

  • Assist students of great promise, but limited means to enroll through scholarships.
  • Attract and retain high quality faculty.
  • Strengthen athletic programs across 24 intercollegiate teams and intramural activities, and enhance fitness facilities for students.
  • Provide technology needs to all students, regardless of their socioeconomic background.
  • Fulfill our institutional commitment to providing a quality higher education to every student.
