Be The Match
Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer – will YOU help us save more lives?
For patients fighting blood diseases, like Leukemia and Sickle Cell, a marrow or stem-cell transplant may be their only cure. 70% of patients don’t have a fully matched donor in their family – and that’s when they turn to Be The Match to find their genetically matched twin. This can be challenging for patients, especially those who are from a diverse ethnic background. Patients are most likely to match someone of their ancestry but, there simply aren’t enough registry members of all backgrounds. Please help us change that by registering today!

The High Five Habit
“Take control of your life by one simple habit” Mel Robbins
Sometimes the things that seem silly turn out to be the most impactful habit in your daily routine. Mel Robbins is a New York Times best-selling author and award-winning podcast host that shares tips on how to take control of your own life! One of her popular tips is the High Five Habit. This habit immediately helps boost your confidence and mood to kickstart your day.
How do you do the High 5 Habit?
When you get up in the morning, right after you brush your teeth, look at yourself in the mirror and set an intention for the day. While thinking of that intention, also think about how you are going to show up, who are you going to be, and what matters most to you to make progress on for the day. After, just raise your hand and high-five your reflection. I know seems funny, but scientifically works! There is so much positive messaging that comes with a high 5 for example, “I believe in you, we got this, let’s go, etc.” We already associate high 5’s with positive representations so when you go to high five for your reflection, you’re embodying that positive energy for the rest of your day.

Scholarships Can Help Fill the Gap!
An important part of any college student’s journey is knowing and understanding all financial aid options when it comes to how you’ll pay for your education. Aside from grants and loans, an important component of this strategy is scholarships. The University is regularly identifying and updating additional scholarship opportunities that our students may be eligible to pursue. Check out our additional scholarships page on the University’s website for the current opportunities we’ve identified and check back often as we’re regularly updating those.
Before you fill out a scholarship application, please review the general eligibility requirements as well as any specific requirements before submitting the application to the organization. This review is important as some scholarships may have unique criteria or exceptions, so please carefully review the scholarships and follow the application instructions, including deadline and document requirements. To read more on the importance of scholarships, check out this blog.
