“When alumni get into the practice of giving regularly Stevens benefits in many ways.”

Larry is one of the youngest members of the EAS Society, and as such he’s helping to inspire an interest in Stevens among a new generation of alumni. “A lot of my peers are still very engaged, and we do talk about Stevens a lot. Seeing things come out of the school and the progress that’s been made really motivates me to stay involved.”

As a senior engineer with the prestigious structural design firm Thornton Tomasetti, Larry has seen the firm hire many recent Stevens grads, and he’s been helping his fellow alums stay connected to the university. “Recent grads are still in the period of repaying student loans, so it’s sometimes difficult for them to contribute right now. But just to be able to talk about Stevens when people ask is the first step to get involved. There’s a lot happening for us to be proud of.”

As a recent graduate, Larry sees the value of giving consistently through the years. “When alumni get into the practice of giving regularly Stevens benefits in many ways. The money directly supports everything from scholarships to new classrooms while it also boosts university rankings. Ranking agencies look at the percentage of alumni who give and how often. Every amount matters in that regard, and all of it makes our degree much more valuable.”
