Laurentians Give

On- and Off-Campus Engagement Opportunities:
Your gifts make today's St. Lawrence experience possible and this day is our  way of celebrating the generosity of the Laurentian community. 

Our Calling All Saints team will be calling alumni and parents to say "Thank You!" and our Student-Alumni Association will be organizing its bi-annual "Thank SLU" event (thank-you note writing event).

On campus, we'll educate students in fun and creative ways on how their St. Lawrence experience is made possible through gifts from alumni, parents and friends.  Imagine gifts tags on a professor, the elliptical machine at the Stafford Fitness Center, a computer in ODY Library or on a chair in the Sullivan Student Center, explaining how those things are made possible through Laurentian support. 

On this day, you'll also hear a little more about a special donor challenge we have coming up in the month of April.  Stay tuned!
