How You Can Help Our Students During the COVID-19 Pandemic

While the full impact of COVID-19 on our student community is still unknown, already it has significantly disrupted life on campus as we transition to online-only classes. Many of our students work to put themselves through school, and are no longer able to. Many are unsure and anxious about the future. Some need help getting home to be with their families or just need help with basic living expenses until this crisis has passed.

We are asking for your support to address the immediate needs of La Roche students experiencing hardship.  Help a La Roche student in need
