Alumni Appreciation Day

The purpose of Alumni Appreciation Day is to raise student awareness of and show appreciation for Grove City College donors and their generosity.

What most students may not realize is that their tuition dollars only cover part of the cost of a full Grove City College experience. Gifts from alumni, parents, and friends make up the difference! Donations provide the funding for buildings, classrooms, science equipment, fitness machines, scholarships, special programs, guest lectures, and much more. Because of the generosity of alumni, parents, and friends, a full Grove City College experience is made possible for every student.

Each year, one day in February is set aside to say thank you. Red bows adorned the campus (on buildings, equipment, and more) to label just some of the many gifts made possible alumni donors. Students were encouraged to stop by the Student Union to sign a thank you postcard to an alumni donor and to post their appreciation via social media by using the hashtag #onedayofthanks. This year's event was held on Thursday, February 20.
