Students United is celebrating 50 years of advocating and serving the students attending Minnesota’s seven state universities.  To celebrate Students United held a Gala on Friday, November 17th at the James J. Hill Center.  The event celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Students United as well as the 30th anniversary of the Penny Fellowship, our largest endowment for student scholarships. We also raised money in honor of our JPS Leadership Scholarship, as we work toward our goal of providing a full four-year tuition scholarship award for future recipients.


Thank you to the event's signature sponsors
