“It felt great knowing that someone out there, who doesn’t know me, believes in my ability and my capacity to succeed, which will allow me to fulfill my dreams.”
— Paulette Saldana, Biology
“My dad only finished eighth grade. My mom only graduated from high school. Scholarships allowed me to stay at Loyola, to continue my education at a place I really value.”
