The college hosted its annual scholarship dinner on April 4th at the Faculty Club. The event celebrates the generosity of donors who have created scholarships for the college's Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) and dental hygiene (DHY) students. It also recognizes the students whose outstanding academic performance and other attributes have made them deserving recipients of scholarship awards.

The celebration drew approximately 80 attendees, including faculty, staff, and Dean Lloyd, who offered welcome remarks. Thirteen donors joined the event, along with 40 DDS students and 9 DHY students. A total of 131 DDS scholarships and 17 DHY scholarships were awarded by the college this year.
