'I Love UMass Amherst Day' activities set for Feb. 28
The Student Alumni Association and the Student Philanthropy Committee are sponsoring “I Love UMass Amherst Day” On Thursday, Feb. 28 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Campus Center concourse. UMass Amherst is joining nearly 70 educational institutions worldwide for this first-ever Council for Advancement and Support of Education ASAP Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day.
Students are invited to visit the table to write thank you notes to donors, alumni or anyone on campus who has positively affected their UMass experience. Students can also videotape a message that will be shared on YouTube, and participate in a Piggy BankIt Roundup to show support.
Anyone wearing UMass gear will get an “I Love UMass” pin from the Student Alumni Association and Student Philanthropy Committee, and T-shirts from the Residence Hall Association.
During the day, alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff are invited to share reasons why they love UMass Amherst on social media using #ILoveUMassAmherst.
Event partners include the Residence Hall Association, the U Store, Greeno Sub Shop, Minuteman Marching Band and Athletics.
