Elizabethtown College students contribute to the world in immeasurable ways during their years on campus and in future endeavors. Yet they can’t do it on ambition, intellect and creativity alone. Donor contributions play a significant role in supporting students—from providing grants and scholarships, to funding research projects and fulfilling unexpected needs, such as building enhancements.
On April 22, Tag the ‘Town Day, to show their appreciation for donor support and to illustrate the impact of gifts, a group of students attached blue-and-white tags of varying sizes to hundreds of items around campus.
A massive tag welcomed visitors to the Masters Mineral Gallery, others hung from lab equipment and building doors. The spring breeze brought attention to the tag adorning the stately clock outside Baugher Student Center.
These tokens of gratitude remained up as the spring semester wound down, a visual reminder of the kindness that keeps the College moving forward.
