Aggie Pride: Students helping students
The new program’s Students Helping Students Fund provides short-term financial assistance to students to cover food, rent and other essential costs not covered by other programs, to give a temporary boost to those who are trying to stay on track for academic success.
Students, faculty and staff all are being asked to contribute—and students are being asked to get involved in raising funds. The campaign, which aims to raise $25,000 in its first year, will host a variety of activities through March 8 to generate donations—a coffee break, bake sale, craft activities and UC Davis athletics events.
