Last year Caldwell University students, faculty, staff and administration came out for the 1st Annual T.A.G. – Thank a Giver – Day, sponsored by the Development and Alumni Affairs Department. Over 300 students signed thank you cards and were treated to some gourmet goodies and entered into a raffle for a chance to win an i-pad mini or an i-pod touch. Cooper the Cougar joined us that day for some fun and games.

This year, on Wednesday, February 26th, we will be celebrating our 2nd Annual T.A.G. – Thank a Giver – Day and would once again like to invite all students, faculty, staff and administration to come out and say thank you.

Join us from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Student Center Hall of Flags for some fun and gourmet goodies. Sign a thank you postcard and be entered into our raffle for this year’s chance to win an Apple TV or a Google Chromecast. First 100 students to sign a postcard will receive an additional chance to win!

Purple TAGS are placed around campus to show all the ways donor generosity has supported a Caldwell University education. Every building, every classroom, every day, each and every student here is affected by this generosity – come out and say thank you!

T.A.G. Day is a nationally sponsored CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) initiative. Caldwell University is proud to host this event in conjunction with CASE to join in the national wave of enthusiasm in thanking our donors!
