Day of Giving

What is Day of Giving: Time, Talent & Treasure?

A day in which we educate students about the importance and need for alumni engagement and the role alumni play in meeting University priorities. Events and programming for this year’s event were focused on educating students, thanking donors, and presenting ways to give back through time, talent and treasure.

This year’s event included a video contest, a piggy bank return to benefit Campus Kitchen, signage around campus with alumni statistics, an alumni engagement trivia game, a photo booth to thank our alumni, and a thank-a-thon.

  • How have you as individual or a student org given back to the University?
  • How do you plan on giving back to the university, now or post-graduation?
  • What inventive ways can you think of to give back to the University, now or post-graduation?
