Remembering Your Alma Mater
Giving Cougsday is a day set aside each year—usually around Homecoming—to remember the fun, the challenges, and the excitement of attending BYU and send some love to the students who are following in our footsteps. All the donations go to help students and create inspiring learning experiences such as study-related jobs, mentorships, scholarships, research opportunities, internships and, when possible, conferences and travel abroad studies.
Tenaciously Beating the Odds
As a teenager, BYU accounting student Katie Hart experimented with drugs and even experienced homelessness. Remarkably, she overcame those challenges and is now a student in BYU Marriott’s master of accountancy program. Her new path began when she was taken in as a teenager by a family who were members of the Church.
