"Thank you for your generational support of your alma mater. SVSU is comminted to the success of Legacy students during their SVSU career."

- Donald Bachand, SVSU President

“SVSU provided an opportunity for my kids to advance their lives. I’m just so happy that so many decided to go there.” - SHARON GEMBROWSKI, ‘97, B.A. Sharon is not the only SVSU grad in her family. Seven of her eight children have either graduated from SVSU or are attending, turning most family functions into unofficial alumni outings. They truly are a flock of Cardinals!

“We came to SVSU because this university took such good care of our mom. We knew they would take good care of us. It’s like you are family, and they want you to succeed. With the Legacy scholarship, now we are ready to succeed.” - MARCELINA & RENE FULGENCIO, LEGACY STUDENTS
