Consider Your Options
Although Roxanne Traux-Cummings graduated in 1973 with a degree in English, she went on to become a CPA. Roxanne attributes much of her success to Union College. For her the school holds a lot of fond memories. One of her favorite memories is the people she would meet walking from the café to the dorm. "It's my favorite memory because I'd run into so many friendly faces and people I knew."
Roxanne liked the small family atmosphere of Union. "I didn't have to be the best musician or the best in anything to be involved. I consider my experience at Union to be a very well-rounded and enriching experience."
Union College played an important roll in Roxanne's life, so it seemed natural for her and her husband, Richard, to remember Union College through an estate gift. "What I got from Union College set me up to continue being successful in what I wanted to accomplish. The people that helped you do what you wanted to do should be remembered."
She wants to ensure that as many students as possible have the opportunity to attend Union. "My hope is that whatever money goes to Union College will make it the kind of place that will attract more students and will help provide financial assistance for those students."
Roxanne says her advice for those interested in giving to Union College is to look at all your options and consider where your money will do the most good.
