ALUMNI PROFILES


"The friendships that I've made in PUPP cannot be expressed by words.  We grew from immature kids to sophisticated young scholars.  We grew from strangers to friends."

   -Johnson Cheng
  Texas A&M University,'10
  Baylor School of Dentistry,'14
  PUPP Class of 2006

“I am extremely grateful for PUPP—It has easily been the most significant factor in my decision to attend the school where I am now. My current success and happiness would not exist if PUPP hadn’t helped me navigate the confusing world of college applications and encouraged me to push myself even harder.”
 

-Courtney Rufh
Davidson College,'15
