"In my two years here, I've grown so much at PLNU."

Junior Danielle considers herself fortunate. Thanks to her scholarship support, Danielle is an active participant in the PLNU community and is able to take full advantage of the activities and resources available on campus. Along with fellow student Danielle Lawson, she received the 2010 Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award for developing a business plan for a new venture. She is also secretary of the accounting club. In addition, as an intern with the Office of University Advancement, Danielle participates in the stewardship of donors by thanking them for their gifts. 

“It is such a good feeling to thank alumni and people in the community for equipping students and investing in our future through their scholarship donations. It’s that support that has allowed me to attend PLNU,” she said. 

Danielle, whose parents are both PLNU alumni, took part in Homecoming events as a youngster, and even then, she recognized what a special place PLNU is.

“I was drawn to PLNU because of my parents, the high quality of faculty, and the close-knit, family atmosphere. I really think it’s what sets our campus apart. In my two years here, I’ve grown so much at PLNU. I can’t wait for what the future holds and am very grateful for what PLNU has done to prepare me for that future.”
