Johnny M. is a third-year student, and among other activities, is a resident advisor, president of his fraternity and member of the student government association, and he's sharing how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting him and his classmates.
Over the last month, the Dean of Students office has received more than 100 requests for emergency assistance, and has provided more than $50,000. Thanks to the generosity of the DePaul community who have donated to the Student Emergency Assistance Fund this year (including during this crisis), no students have been turned away due to a lack of funds.
The Student Emergency Assistance Fund is life-changing for our students in crisis. It reduces stress and anxiety, helps them stay engaged and keeps them enrolled in pursuit of their academic goals. Requests for assistance are continuing to come in, and we anticipate more as the crisis continues. Your gift to the Student Emergency Assistance Fund may be the difference between helping a student in crisis and turning them away in their time of need.
Thank you for your support.
