Danielle Rose was an Arrupe Scholar whose passions were rooted in helping children like her sister, April, who has Down syndrome. Danielle passed away in September 2012, and this event was established to keep her commitment to helping others with disabilities alive. Danie’s Day is co-sponsored by the Arrupe Scholars Program, Students for Social Justice, and Sigma Phi Epsilon.
