Tracey Gardner ’96

My mom was a single mom, and so the fact that Wesleyan gave us a good financial aid package was absolutely key to us being able to afford to be there.

From the moment I stepped foot on campus, I just fell in love with Wesleyan. I was able to meet a lot of people who were from many different places and who had many different experiences than I had, and it really opened up my eyes a lot.

So when I think about how much I received from Wesleyan personally and professionally, I feel compelled to give back. It's our responsibility and it can even be our joy to give back.
