Students making fun poses together on campus.

1857 Circle

The 1857 Circle has its roots in tradition while building the future. It recognizes donors who surround our students and the university with support through noteworthy annual contributions. The impact of your generosity will even extend beyond campus, through discoveries and innovations launched at SJSU that ripple outward, improving lives — locally and globally.
