Puerto Rico Relief Effort

In an effort to support the families and students in Puerto Rico, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions is working with Autopista Americas and 33 other universities to host an application week in San Juan between December 11-15 to assist students with the college application process.  We are coordinating an effort to provide each student who attends the App Strong Week a relief bag of supplies/toiletries.  Each university will be providing cinch bags that we hope to fill with the items below requested by Unidos Por Puerto Rico.

If departments have spare promotion items they would like to donate, please bring your items to the Tasker Building, 1st floor, main entrance by November 20.  Individual donations will also be accepted. 

List of items requested by Unidos Por Puerto Rico:

•  Hats/Bandanas
