Alverno has held a special place in my heart because my mom graduated in 1994 despite all the odds against her. While she kept quiet during my college search, I came to find on my own that Alverno is the place where I belong. Receiving a scholarship changed my perspective on my education. I always believed I couldn't, but now I KNOW I can.
