Calling All Verrazzano Alumni!

We have launched a month-long campaign to raise money to continue to provide students with a unique college experience. We are looking forward to having an in-person orientation again, to taking students on more and interesting VELAs, having a convocation to celebrate our graduates, and throwing the occasionally socially distanced pizza party. The pandemic has hit us hard; we need your help to weather the storm, and insure that students will continue to have great stories to tell of their Verrazzano experience.
Whether you donate before the end of the year as part of this season of giving, or make it part of your New Year’s resolutions to give back to your Verrazzano family, your donation will make a real difference.
Please pay it forward and give now to Verrazzano Honors!

What is Verrazzano?

It is an exceptional undergraduate education.

Verrazzano makes an exceptional school out of an excellent one. You’ll take classes with smart motivated students like yourself; stretch your boundaries by exposing yourself to new ideas, activities, opportunities, and cultures; give back to your community; get individualized advice on course selection and professional development; and show off what you’ve learned doing a capstone project that is completely and uniquely yours. You’ll leave with a fabulous education and great stories to tell.
