About Me

I joined the Regatta Committee in February 2019, where I became the teams Director of Graphic Design. Which means I am responsible for creating graphics, fliers, the Bell Tower banner, T-shirts, and most importantly the 2019 Regatta Poster! 

Before joining the Regatta, I knew nothing about the great event other than that It was a canoe race on the canal. I had never attended it before. But the Regatta is much More Than A Canoe Race.Now that I know all about it and am part of the 9 months of planning that goes into this one-day event, I am extremely excited and proud to be part of IUPUI and the Regatta. One of my goals this year is to help more people like me who never paid much attention to the Regatta or campus events in general and show them how exciting and fun they can be.

More Info

The Regatta started eleven years ago with the purpose of bringing the IUPUI campus and the Indianapolis community together to build a new tradition on the downtown canal. Since that first event featuring nearly 1,000 attendees, the event has grown into a signature event attracting 10,000+ attendees and providing $10,000 in student scholarships each year. 

With your help, we want to expand this event’s impact and provide more support to IUPUI students. 

Currently 80% of students are reliant on federal loans to get through college. This reliance limits their ability to thrive in college. However, for the past four years, the Stefan S. Davis IUPUI Regatta Scholarship has provided scholarships to help students reach their full potential. 

This year as we paddle down the canal, lets help equip our fellow students to reach academic goals. Please, make your gift today to the Stefan S. Davis IUPUI Regatta Scholarship! 

"Receiving the Davis IUPUI Regatta Scholarship has allowed me to worry less about money so that I can focus more time on my school work." - Brittany Trimnell, Junior radiography student, IU School of Medicine 

"The Davis IUPUI Regatta Scholarship has not only provided me with financial benefits, but it has provided networking opportunities. I have been invited to dinners with alumni, opening doors into both work and career growth." - Anthony Tarver, Graduate Student in Public Health, Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health
