Amazon Easy Giving
Every time you access your Amazon account through the image on this page, or bit.ly/easygiving, your purchase provides an average of 5% (up to 8%) on the transaction back to the school at no additional expense to you! Shop as you normally would — you can still log in and use your personal Amazon account and O’Dowd gets qualified rebates! Turn your shopping into an act of giving.

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT: Meet Tjuana Smylie

Editorial Volunteer
Tjuana-TJ for short-is a native of Oakland. She and her husband Troy are the proud parents of Joseph, Class of 2020. TJ is a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology and works with a community health agency in Berkeley. “I have had a love affair with Bishop O’Dowd since I was in high school, even though I attended a different school. O’Dowd has been a great academic and social environment for family and friends who attended before Joseph.” TJ enjoys reading, watching movies, martial arts training, and spending time with her family and friends. She believes passionately in strengthening communities and helping people to find a place within those communities. “I chose to volunteer at O’Dowd because I want to give back to a place that is giving my son so much-a safe environment, good education, and great support. I think he likes to see me around as well.”
