Marian University 21st Century Scholars recognized for achievements

"I am a 21st Century Scholar and it is one of the best things I have ever been a part of. The program has allowed me to go to the school I wanted and not have to carry a hard financial burden. I love the 21st Century program at Marian because we are our own community and have a lot of fun when we do activities together. The mentor program has been a wonderful experience too, I have gone from mentee to mentor and it is a cool way to get to know new people and help those who were in my shoes not so long ago." - Kayla, Class of 2014
