Our ScholarMatch students sometimes talk about the excitement they felt when they heard that an amazingly generous donor has contributed to their college tuition. In the second installment of our ScholarMatch video series, student Bianca Catalan was able to connect with one of her donors, who also happens to be one of the stars of NBC's The Office, John Krasinski!
John loved the idea of being able to support a student directly, and he and Bianca were a great match: They have great senses of humor, they're serious about learning, and they're interested in the arts. As donors and scholars sometimes do through ScholarMatch, the two met up to discuss the importance of a college education and their unique university experiences. We weren't surprised at all when they hit it off smashingly. You can watch the results in this fantastic video below, and then watch the outtakes of John and Bianca debating the best "advice" for college students.
