    To learn and serve

    Six students in the College, who are the recipients of University scholarships that reward the academic excellence of children whose parents are public servants in the city of Chicago, were recently honored with a reception in Ida Noyes Hall. The students enrolled in the College last fall with the assistance of a University scholarship program developed in the 1970s specifically for the children of Chicago’s firefighters and police officers.
