A Message from President Smarrelli

Dear Donors:

Thank you for your support of Christian Brothers University! Your gifts help over 1,600 CBU students as they develop academically and personally, ready to become tomorrow's leaders in their chosen fields.

As you may know, over 96 percent of CBU students rely on financial aid to make their education here possible. Many of our scholars are the first in their families to attend college or gain a private school education, working hard to reach their dreams. Your support affords each student a collegiate experience that builds their intellectual curiosity as much as their personal growth. Contributions to CBU are vital to our ability to award scholarships, maintain the highly trained faculty and provide the up-to-date facilities our students need to excel.

The advantages CBU is able to provide its students once again led to being recognized as one of the top 25 universities in the southeast in 2014 and our placement as #1 in education return on investment in Tennessee by U.S. news.

Thank you on behalf of our students and faculty for investing in CBU, its students, and the communities they leave here to serve.

With Gratitude,

John Smarrelli, Jr., PhD
