Neesha Tambe comes back to visit De Anza College

De Anza alumna continues to champion civic engagement in her community and in her work

After she graduated from high school Neesha Tambe wasn't sure what she wanted to do. She had been accepted into a number of universities but wasn't "energized" by any of them. Unsure of what to do, she reached out to a friend. Her friend gave advice that Neesha said she would never forget. "You don't have to do what everyone else is doing (going to a four-year university)," her friend said. "You can take time to figure out where your passions lie."

$3,000 match challenge by June 30th for Foothill's most vulnerable student population

Food insecurity and homelessness are growing concerns among college students. Not surprisingly, having to live in one of the most expensive areas in the country, many Foothill students struggle with not being able to meet their basic needs. Students who don't have a permanent home may be couch-surfing or even living in their cars, yet they remain determined to continue with their education. However, even the most steadfast student's success is at risk when faced with homelessness and hunger.
