Bañales Family

The Bañales family never imagined that 4 of their children would follow their father's lead and attend UCR. The university was a second home to their sons, Alexandre, André, and Gérard. Their mother, Catarina, is proud that her boys have become productive and passionate individuals. She and her husband are thankful for the university and its focus on student success. Their youngest son Sébastien is a sophomore and they look forward to him graduating in June 2022.

Your Gift Supports

When you give to UCR you support academic excellence, research, and your student’s journey at UCR.

“As parents, we are very proud of the accomplishments of our UCR student, having graduated from this fine and wonderful research university. UCR is a place for exploration, acceptance, and guidance; this is the same passion my wife and I strive to share with our children. If this is your wish for your child, you’ve come to the right place.”
 - MICHAEL AND DEBBIE ELKINS
