Each year, bragging rights are on the line in the “Count Me In!” race, a giving challenge for alumni classes who have yet to celebrate their fiftieth reunion. 

Four awards are up for grabs and to make things fair, graduates of the last decade (GoLD) compete separately.  

What’s on the line? Following the winners’ public acceptance of their award at Fall Convocation, each class victory will be forever commemorated with an engraved plaque displayed in the Alumni House for all to see.

Don’t be left out. Make your gift before the end of each fiscal year (June 30) and get counted.
