On TAG (Thanking All Givers) Day, students, faculty and staff placed green tags bearing the message “Made Possible Thanks to our Generous Donors” on campus landmarks, offices, labs, equipment and other examples of generosity. University personnel and alumni handed out TAG Day T-shirts to students and then performed random acts of kindness — passing out gift cards to students spotted wearing their shirt.

Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow partnered with Blue Key to launch a campaign for the Spirit for Change to encourage students to give in support of student projects.

Donors joined faculty, staff and students in a dedication ceremony for 11 instructional labs that were upgraded with nearly $2 million in public funding, grants and charitable contributions. And scholarship students and donors teamed up to raise money for student organizations during the third annual Battle of the Brains scholarship banquet and trivia night. The Habitat for Humanity team won the $500 first-place prize.
