Reunion Giving

Besides offering us a chance to catch up with each other and see the many changes to NDC’s campus, reunion also is an opportunity to make a meaningful class gift to the College. As students, we came from all walks of life – traditional and non-traditional students, commuters and residents – but by the end of our experience we were united by a common bond – NDC changed our lives!
Will you help to change the lives of our students today?Make a contribution to the Annual Fund and do just that.  Your gift enables today’s students to flourish in the classroom, the lab, at their internship or on the playing field.  More importantly, your gift advances our critical mission of launching students into the world who are models of personal, professional and globally responsibility.
