We welcomed our Alfie Scholar class of 2020 on June 30, 2018 for an all-day Leadership for Civility retreat. Our new Alfie Scholars represent a diverse range of ages (18-38) and nationalities (Bosnia, China, Democratic Republic of the Congo, India, Somalia, Vietnam, United States). Six are the first in their families to attend college. Two are parents. Three were encouraged to apply by current scholars! Three are engineering majors, three are nursing majors, two are business majors, and one is a journalism major.

We are excited to welcome these incredible scholars into our community and look forward to seeing where this journey takes them!
