Description: No AV

What is Day of Giving?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 are focused on educating students, thanking donors, and presenting ways to give back through time, talent, and treasure. Event Details:9:30-12 - President's Dining RoomSign-up to sit with an alum for a 30 minute mentoring session.

We'll also have alumni from the morning mentoring session eager to network with you! PHOTO BOOTH: grab your friends and take a picture in our photo booth. This is also a great opportunity to hold up our THANK YOU ALUMNI sign in your pictures and show your gratitude to the many alumni who donate their time, talent and treasure to the University!SELFIE CONTEST STATION: a week before the event we'll be posting signs with large bows around campus on all the labs, buildings, classrooms, and items that were made possible through alumni donations. Take a selfie with these signs and get one drawing entry for each you take. There are over 20 locations on campus, so the more you take a selfie with, the better your odds of winning. Just share with us at the event to be submitted into the drawing. We'll be giving away five $50 Amazon gift cards for the winners! PLINKO TRIVIA STATION: answer some fun questions and get goodies for participating, to include pop sockets, credit card holders and water bottles!

Put up on the display board for everyone to see! LIVE GIVING STATION: Every year we compete with Oakland to see which University can get the most donors during a giving challenge before the men's basketball game versus Oakland. The losing University's mascot has to wear the other mascot's jersey. Don't let Tommy lose again!
