Everyday RU.

It’s something we bring with us every day, wherever we go. It lives in our hearts, our souls and our brains. It’s the little voice that reminds us to do the right thing, pay it forward, lead with kindness. It’s RU.

It’s an everyday gift that keeps on giving. Now it’s time to give back so that little RU voice can live on in the hearts, souls and brains of future Hawks.

“I feel so blessed to advance my education at RU while doing something I love – playing lacrosse. Here, I know I am receiving a high-quality education that will lead me to success. But the truth is, I would not have been able to attend this great university without the academic scholarship I received. Scholarships like mine exist because of the generosity of donors like you. It made my everyday Rockhurst experience possible, and for that I am so grateful.”
- Danielle Spencer, ’19
“It is hard to find words to sum up our time at Rockhurst University because so many come to mind. Rockhurst is our home away from home. A place that allowed us to strive to be the best versions of ourselves not only personally, but also for others. Simply put, we are blessed by our exceptional, life-changing experience at Rockhurst. Like Danielle on the reverse, every day we are grateful we chose RU.”
