What Our Students Are Saying

Pollak Society support contributes to these success stories.

In addition to my tuition, this substantial award assisted me in my purchases of a Apple Macbook Pro computer and digital camera, as requirements into my graphic design program. As a student who will continue to be working full-time throughout college, this award helps me tremendously to reach my goals and work to my highest potential.
