Directed Giving

Student Life

While the average student will spend 30-40 hours a week in class, labs and studying, the rest of the time will be spent as a member of the community - living in a residence hall, theme or fraternity house; representing fellow students through student government; playing on intramural and club teams; and participating in the life of the Colleges through numerous religious, cultural and arts organizations. Professionals in residential life, health and wellness and the Deans Offices support individual students as they balance academic, extracurricular and personal life. The campus pulses with student activity and involvement throughout the year. A gift in support of Student Life touches the life of every student on campus every day.

Preparing Students to Lead Lives of Consequence.

Unrestricted Support: Whether it meets an immediate need, remedies an unexpected challenge, or accelerates a program forward, unrestricted Annual Fund support ensures flexibility for the successful day-to-day operation of the Colleges.

Academics and Global Education: When supporting academics and global education, you enhance the positive learning relationships between faculty and students and enable off-campus study that is often life altering.

Facilities and Technology: The beautiful campus facilities are seen and admired by all. The technology that supports a 21st century education may be unseen but is no less important in providing students with a first-class learning and living environment.

Internships and Career Services: A Hobart and William Smith education is highly valued in the marketplace, especially when students have top-notch internship experiences on their résumés. In addition to supporting all services offered by the Salisbury Center for Career Development and Professional Services, internship stipend support is a priority that makes it possible for all students to explore experiential learning opportunities.

Scholarships and Financial Aid: Support for scholarships and financial aid is important in recruiting high caliber students and is critical to ensure that our students do not graduate with debt that limits career options or burdens future opportunities for success.

Student Life: A gift in support of student life touches every student - every day - by funding student activities, clubs, Title IX initiatives, athletics and other extracurricular programming throughout the year.
