Meet our Ambassadors

Our Dominican Fund Ambassadors are a student philanthropy group capturing students’ desire to recognize, and thank the university community that made their Dominican experience possible. They promote philanthropy through acknowledgement and activities that inform students, parents, alumni and friends on the significant impact of donor support and stewardship. They want everyone to know how much Dominican is loved.

Zoe Studer, Class of 2017

Major: Occupational Therapy

"It’s great to have teachers that know you and care about you."

Message to donors: I would like you to know how much we appreciate your support of Dominican.


Haja Mondisa, Class of 2017

Major: International Studies
"I love the diversity of people along with the special attention, proximity to San Francisco, small class sizes and beauty of the campus."

Message to donors: Donors want to allocate money to important things like a loving environment that nurtures learning and personal growth. That’s happening here, for students like me who thrive in a supportive learning environment.


Alex Hererra, Class of 2017

Major: Communications
"I love the fact that there is a strong sense of service and community. I also enjoy the small class sizes because it allows me to get more help one on one."

Message to donors: We are a welcoming community that wants the best for all students.


Aileen So, Class of 2016

Major: Nursing
"It can be stressful to work so hard to keep my GPA up, but I love literally everything about Dominican."

Message to donors: You are contributing to a school that is helping to shape my future. If I could hug you, I would.

Abbi Furlow, Class of 2017

Major: Public Health
"I love the small community, the beautiful campus, small classes and friendly faculty."

Message to donors: You are supporting a supportive campus. This campus feels like home and you're contributing to that.

Kassandra Mangoba, Class of 2017

Major: Nursing
"I love that Dominican is a very welcoming, friendly and on a beautiful campus. While it is a small-knit community, it's easier to get involved and meet others. It's also a great advantage for the classroom learning experience."

Message to donors: We appreciate your support and generosity to the DUC is a great investment that will go a long way to help out current and future students of Dominican.


Kelsey Hekman, Class of 2016

Major: Nursing
"I love the close knit community. Since I have been at Dominican I have not met a mean soul. Everyone here is so genuine. I can strike up a conversation with anyone here and know, by the end of the day I will have a new friend. Dominican is home."

Message to donors: We are so incredibly grateful for all that you have done and will do for the school. The size of the school, and the fact that it is not a “name brand” school might influence some when it comes to donations, but the people that still have enough school spirit to donate to the school is monumental. The donors have some of the biggest hearts I have ever seen. Thanks guys.
