"My husband Peter and I decided to give to the Alumni Green project for a couple of reasons. One - I wanted to honor Peter and congratulate him on earning his Master's in Education degree at South Dakota State University. I was really proud his accomplishment and what that means for my family, and his career, and his investment in that, and all of the great things and opportunities that SDSU has provided for him.

Secondarily, being a Development Director at the SDSU Foundation, seeing the impact and importance of this project and our collaboration with the Alumni Association has just been wonderful and amazing. Alumni Green project is just a great gateway to our campus and an opportunity for all of our alumni to really feel the great home that they felt while they were on campus and then again back on campus at SDSU."
