SUS Foundation 1880 Society grant to help SUNO students
- 5/2/2014 -
Southern University New Orleans (SUNO) has received a $15,000 grant from the Southern University System Foundation's 1880 Society to help retain first-time freshmen admitted to the University in 2009 and 2010.
Many students have families to support and other life situations that prevent them from having access to needed dollars to finish their college education within a six-year period, which is the benchmark used for determining universities' graduation rates. The 1880 Society grant will provide needed resources to more than 50 students.
