Audrey Markarian '07 and Taryn Tong '07 "Taryn Tong '07 (pictured, right) helped me accomplish things I never thought I could."— Audrey Markarian ’07 

"When I first met Taryn Tong '07 as a Firstie, I was impressed by how smart, driven and engaging she was.  I had no idea that by our senior year, we would be nearly inseparable as two of three students completing Psychology theses that year.  

Spending hours a day in the basement of Reese conducting research was exhausting, but through it all Taryn was there with me, motivating me.   I had never considered doing a thesis when I entered MHC, and yet I graduated with a project that I was immensely proud of, and a friendship that is priceless.  I don't know if I could have done it, if she wasn't there by my side. I am so lucky, knowing that Taryn will forever be a fabulous friend, even when time and distance makes it hard to talk as much as when we were living on the same floor.  Since graduating from MHC, I frequently think back to the times that Taryn helped cheer me on, and I find motivation again. 

Taryn, because we met, I have accomplished things I never thought I could." —Audrey Markarian '07

Whether your life's journey was changed by a professor, classmate, friend, or mentor—on campus or after you graduated—the connections that happen through MHC are uniquely special and reverberate through our lives.

Make someone's day. Change someone's life.  Honor your MHC connections by making your gift today.
