This week Saint Louis University is celebrating generosity and recognizing the continued support of its donors — alumni, faculty, staff and students.
Starting at 8:30 a.m. Monday, students, staff and the Billiken will be delivering balloons and thank-you cards to all faculty and staff donors. If someone is not in their office when the delivery is made, the balloon and card will be safely tied to a doorknob or left in a mailbox.
Throughout the week, the Office of Development Marketing and Stewardship will also be hosting a series of "Thank-a-thons." Scholarship recipients have been asked to stop by one of these events to complete hand written thank-you notes to the donors who made their scholarships possible. Scholarship recipients can still register by calling Kris Siebert at 314-977-3145.
On Wednesday, students and staff will be hanging out in the quad to pass out bags of popcorn between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to help tame everyone's mid-afternoon munchies.
To start off the day with an extra little perk, faculty, staff and student donors will be treated to a complimentary coffee and cocoa bar stocked with all of the fixings on Thursday morning. From 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., donors can stop by a coffee bar near the quad or a coffee bar just south of the Hickory garages along the walkway on the Health Sciences Education Union.
On Friday, the Class Legacy Program will sponsor the second annual Icing on the Cake Day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. near the quad. Students are invited to sign an oversized thank-you card, which will be displayed at future alumni and donor events. As a way of thanking students for their help, each signer will receive a piece of cake. Students will also have a chance to write a personal thank-you email or record a thank-you video message.
Finally, as a salute to SLU's graduating seniors, all senior donors are invited to a Happy Hour at Humphrey's from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday evening. Those in attendance must have made a minimum gift of $20 this year.
